Pedestrian Accidents in Florida
The number of pedestrian accidents in Florida is the highest in the country. Additionally, Tampa is in the top ten most dangerous US cities for pedestrians. In America, hit-and-run occurrences and other pedestrian accidents are on the rise, which makes it even harder for accident victims to get the financial assistance they need to recover from their injuries.

It is advisable for you to speak with a lawyer as soon as you can following your injuries.
