Florida Is Not Safe For Pedestrians. Know Your Rights.
The unprotected human body doesn’t stand a chance in a collision with a car, truck, or motorcycle. Even a smaller vehicle like a bicycle can cause serious injuries to a pedestrian.
If you or someone you love has been injured in a pedestrian accident, the attorneys at Schrier Law Group can help. We have recovered more than $500 million in payments for injured people in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, Jacksonville, Tampa, and other parts of Florida.
Helping Victims Of Careless Drivers
When a careless or distracted driver strikes a pedestrian, it the pedestrian who suffers serious injuries. Florida personal injury protection (PIP) offers up to $10,000 for medical care following an accident involving a motor vehicle, including when a person walking or on a bike is struck by a motor vehicle. However, PIP will not be enough if you have suffered a serious injury.
Our lawyers frequently see pedestrian injuries involving:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Internal trauma
- Degloving injuries
- Broken bones
- Spinal cord injuries
Tragically, many pedestrians are killed by motorists, even in low-speed crashes. Although car accident deaths have declined steadily for years, pedestrian deaths have actually risen quite sharply, partly due drivers who are distracted by cellphones. Unfortunately, Florida leads the nation in pedestrian deaths.
Other people are left with debilitating injuries that prevent them from working or even performing daily activities like feeding themselves or breathing without the help of a machine. In many pedestrian cases, an accident victim requires lifelong medical care. The costs of ongoing medical treatment and personal assistance can quickly climb into the millions. When a pedestrian is forced to stop working due to his or her injuries, compensation can also include money for loss of earning potential and support of dependents, such as a spouse or children.
Our lawyers are equipped to handle the most devastating injury cases. While no amount of compensation can make up for damage caused by a careless driver, our lawyers will do everything we can to hold the wrongdoers and their insurance companies accountable.
