Pedestrian Accidents in Florida
Pedestrian accidents are some of the most severe accidents on our roads that are capable of causing some of the most extensive harm. This is due to the fact that, when up against motor vehicles or any other large type of vehicle, pedestrians have no protection from harm. According to recent statistics, approximately 20% of fatal accidents were identified as pedestrian-related collisions. Every year, hundreds of victims lose their lives in Florida pedestrian accidents. These accidents are most prevalent in our state, which means that drivers are always supposed to pay close attention to the roads around them.
