Florida Pedestrian Accident Lawyers
In Florida, a little rain that barely wets the roads can be just a minor inconvenience to commuters behind the wheel of a car. But that seemingly harmless scenario can reduce visibility and braking capability and put pedestrians in crosswalks at great risk of being struck by a motor vehicle, resulting in catastrophic injuries or death.
In fact, the National Traffic and Highway Safety Administration designated Florida as one of four states with the highest number of pedestrian fatalities.
The trend toward walking, running, and exercising with ear phones combined with significantly quieter cars than the typical combustion engine has caused a significant problem for pedestrians, bicyclists, skate boarders and rollerbladers who are less able to hear vehicles approaching.
Recent crash data presented during a government safety study revealed that hybrid cars were more than twice as likely to be involved in an accident with a pedestrian than non-hybrid cars.

Florida Bike Accident Lawyers
When a bicyclist shares the road with an inattentive driver, it could lead to a life-changing or life-ending bike accident.
An investigation may uncover the cause of an accident, but sometimes it can be just a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Whatever the reason, the result of even low speed car/bike crashes can leave bicyclists with devastating injuries.
Attorneys for the at-fault party may appear soon after the accident and offer an out of court settlement. If you have been injured in an accident, you should not sign any documents before securing legal representation. Doing so could result in waving rights you are entitled to, which could compromise or prevent you from recovering a settlement.
If that happens, who will pay your medical bills or reimburse you for the bicycle, clothing or other personal property that was destroyed as a result of the accident?
