Pedestrian Accidents in Florida

Why You Need a Miami Personal Injury Lawyer

Most pedestrian accidents occur when vehicles are traveling at high and often illegal speeds. Such accidents usually occur in non-intersection, urban areas and most of them at night, when visibility is low. Pedestrians are 1.5 times more likely to be killed in a car crash than passengers. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly 70,000 pedestrians were injured in accidents in 2008.

What causes pedestrian injuries and wrongful deaths?

  • Low visibility, usually at night
  • Driver negligence
  • Improper signage
  • Much more

Understand the Law and Your Rights

Here in Florida, pedestrians have the right of way when they are walking or riding their bike, skateboard, scooter, etc. on a sidewalk or other such walkway adjacent to a road or street. A pedestrian also has the right of way when using a crosswalk to cross the street and are obeying all traffic lights and signs. In the majority of pedestrian accidents in Miami, the person driving the car or truck involved is liable for damages. As soon as possible after an accident occurs, be sure to contact Cohen Law for the competent, caring, and knowledgeable personal injury attorney representation you need.
