Florida Fatal Pedestrian Accidents
In 2017, a pedestrian was killed by a motor vehicle nearly every 88 minutes on average in the United States. Pedestrians in Florida are especially vulnerable to serious injuries in the event of a collision. With 708 pedestrian fatalities reported in 2019, Florida had the second-highest number of pedestrian fatalities in the country. A lawyer should be contacted by pedestrians who have been seriously injured in an accident.
When a loved one dies as a result of someone else’s carelessness or negligence, it can be devastating. For the family of a deceased victim, unexpected expenses and other damages are common.
