Deadly Pedestrian Accidents in Florida
Florida people may not consider walking to be perilous, but walking is actually highly dangerous in this state. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there were about 500 pedestrian fatalities in Florida in 2010, the most recent year for which data are available. It is only second to New York among the states and about double the national average for each state.
If the deceased provided financial support for others, their dependents must move quickly to find a way to settle the obligation, which may now include medical debt incurred while the deceased was struggling to survive.
