Pedestrian Accidents in Florida
Pedestrian accidents are known for being some of the most catastrophic accidents on our roads that are capable of causing some of the worst harm. This is due to the fact that pedestrians are incredibly vulnerable and have no protection from harm. Recent statistics show that approximately 20% of fatal accidents are pedestrian accidents in the state of Florida. Hundreds of people lose their lives in these accidents each year within the state. If you have lost a loved one in one of these accidents, you may wonder how you can move forward in your time of need.
Most Florida pedestrian accidents happen unexpectedly and can be prevented when drivers pay close attention to the roads around them.
