Southwestern Florida Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

Vehicle drivers are taught to yield the right-of-way to pedestrians. However, far too often, drivers are distracted and simply not paying attention to their driving and the environment around them. This creates a serious danger for those who are walking, running, or crossing the street, and a pedestrian accident lawyer can help.

When you consider the injuries you might receive in a car accident, it’s easy to imagine how much worse it can be when you don’t have the protection of a vehicle around you. Since the law usually places the burden on drivers to keep pedestrians safe, if a person is injured in a pedestrian-vehicle accident they are typically entitled to compensation for their injuries, lost wages, and related pain and suffering.
