A total of 5,977 pedestrians were murdered on American roads in that year. In the event of a collision, pedestrians in Florida are more likely to sustain serious injuries. With 708 pedestrian fatalities in 2019, Florida has the second-highest rate of pedestrian deaths in the United States.
Nothing will ever make up for the harm a family member has suffered as a result of someone else’s negligence or poor behavior. Your life has changed tremendously, and it is possible that it may never be the same again. It is necessary to hold the individual who is responsible accountable. Although continuing to operate after a loss may be tough, you only have a set period of time in Florida to file a lawsuit against the liable party. When that time period expires, you lose all rights. You are not required to go through this alone.
