Accidents that involve individuals on foot are likely to result in significant injuries, deaths, and property damage. Pedestrians have no protection from the impact of a motor vehicle, so even accidents that occur at comparatively slow speeds can be serious, resulting in catastrophic injuries, profound mental traumas, and considerable economic losses.

After an accident involving a pedestrian in Florida, you will need the help of an attorney to preserve your legal rights.
