Common Causes and Types of Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrian accidents can occur in various situations, often involving:

  • Vehicles reversing without caution, leading to collisions with unsuspecting pedestrians.
  • Sideswipe incidents on the roadside, especially prevalent at night when visibility is reduced.
  • Intersections, where turning vehicles fail to notice crossing pedestrians.
  • Residential areas, where children playing near streets are particularly vulnerable.
  • Off-road accidents, including vehicles veering onto sidewalks or hitting pedestrians at bus stops.

Navigating the Path to Compensation

Understanding Florida’s traffic laws is crucial in pedestrian accident claims. Pedestrians have rights and responsibilities, such as obeying traffic control devices and crossing streets safely. When accidents occur, establishing the negligence of the motorist is key to securing compensation. Our lawyers are adept at proving fault, even in complex scenarios where the pedestrian’s actions are called into question.
