Pedestrian Accidents

Sarasota Pedestrian Accident Lawyers You Can Trust

Pedestrian vs Vehicle accidents stand out from other traffic accidents for a number of reasons:
  • A human body is no match for a car, truck, or motorcycle in motion. The person struck has no vehicle body surrounding him or her and no protective devices such as seat belts. A pedestrian with a helmet is a rarity. Head injuries and other serious injuries are common.
  • Sometimes, pedestrian accidents are truly accidents. This can be the case when motorists could not see the person or tried unsuccessfully to avoid striking him or her. In other cases, a it’s clearly the result of gross negligence by a driver.
  • Hit-and-run pedestrian accidents are common. Even if the vehicle or driver is never identified, there may be other available sources of compensation, such as the pedestrian’s own uninsured motorist coverage (or that of a close family member living in the same residence).
  • Every accident is unique. Variables such as crosswalks, crossing signals, and the injured pedestrian’s age may have an impact on a case.

No Pedestrian Accident Case is Too Large, Small or Complicated
