Pedestrian Accidents

In pedestrian accidents, the injuries which result can be serious and often fatal. In the city of Miami, more pedestrian accidents occur than anywhere else in the state of Florida with a total of nearly 1,600 pedestrian injuries and 58 deaths recorded in 2017.

When pedestrian accidents happen as the result of an auto driver’s negligence, the responsible party should be held liable for your injuries.

Why Pedestrian Accidents Happen

The most common reasons for pedestrian accidents are: 

  • Distracted driving
  • Intoxicated driving
  • Negligent driving, 
  • Pedestrian negligence (such as looking down at phones and not paying attention while crossing the street)
  • Reckless or aggressive drivers (speeding and illegal traffic maneuvers)

What Damages You Can Recover

Unfortunately, as a pedestrian involved in an accident with a vehicle such as a car or truck, you are likely to suffer debilitating and permanent injuries. For your traumatic and catastrophic injuries, you can seek to recover the cost of medical bills and other hospital expenses, rehabilitation and nursing, property damage, lost earning and future wages, emotional distress, and pain and suffering. 

Note, even in instances of shared liability or contributory negligence, if you were distracted while walking, you can still recover but the amount of damages will be less than if it were proved that you were not contributory negligent.
