Florida Pedestrian Accident Attorney Helping Victims Since 1977
Anyone who lives in Florida, or has visited our sunny state on vacation knows that the beautiful weather inspires people of all ages to go on long walks. It’s healthy and allows residents and visitors to experience the sights and sounds of Florida in ways that cannot be enjoyed from a vehicle. Unfortunately, people out on a leisurely stroll are often overlooked by careless drivers, struck, and either injured severely or killed. The human body is no match for a vehicle weighing many thousands of pounds and survivors of pedestrian accidents usually face a long and expensive road to recovery.

Experienced, Dedicated Orlando Pedestrian Accident Lawyer
Being hit by a vehicle while walking usually results in catastrophic injuries for people who cannot get out of the way of a car fast enough to avoid injury or are struck from behind. Most pedestrian accidents in the Orlando area occur because a pedestrian was obeying a traffic signal at an intersection and a negligent driver was distracted or otherwise failed to stop at a red light. People injured in pedestrian accidents must often deal with the following injuries:
- Fractured skulls
- Back Injuries
- Broken or crushed limbs
- Spinal cord injuries
- Broken hips and pelvises
- Ruptured internal organs
- Brain trauma
- And many other types of serious trauma
The 8139 pedestrian accidents that occurred in Florida in 2007 resulted in 7529 people injured and 530 people killed. Many injuries from pedestrian accidents require victims to spend many days or weeks in the hospital in recovery. With medical care in hospitals costing many thousands of dollars a day—not counting expensive medication, treatments and rehabilitation regimens—victims must contend with financial pain along with physical pain and discomfort.
