Fatal Pedestrian Crashes in Florida
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that in 2017, a pedestrian died in the US every 88 minutes. 5,977 pedestrians died on American roads in that year. In the event of an accident, pedestrians in Florida are more likely to sustain catastrophic injuries. With 708 pedestrian deaths in 2019, Florida has the second-highest pedestrian fatality rate in the US.
Nothing will ever be able to make up for the hurt a family member suffered as a result of someone else’s carelessness or poor behavior. Your life has undergone a significant change, and there’s a possibility that it may never be the same. It’s essential to hold the responsible party accountable. Even though it could be challenging to carry on after a loss, Florida only gives you a limited period of time to file a claim against the at-fault party. After that time has passed, you are deprived of all rights. This is not something you have to go through alone.
