It Is Dangerous To Be A Pedestrian In Florida

A report by Smart Growth America shows that Florida ranks number one in the U.S. for pedestrian fatalities. From 2010 – 2019, there were 5,893 pedestrian deaths in our state. These alarming statistics are a very real cause for concern. If a pedestrian accident happens to you or a family member, will you know how to get compensation for your losses?

At Jared Newman, Esq., you will find a lawyer with the skill, experience and compassion you need after a devastating accident. I have more than 10 years of accident and injury experience that I will focus on your case. When you hire my firm, you get me, not an associate or paralegal. We will work together from start to finish, and I will be your dedicated attorney, available to you at any time.

How Do These Accidents Happen?

Some of the reasons that pedestrian accidents occur include:

  • Vehicular traffic that is very close to the sidewalk
  • Drivers who aren’t paying attention to pedestrians
  • Crosswalks that are not clearly marked
  • Drivers who are speeding or impaired by drugs or alcohol
  • Drivers who are not looking out for pedestrians in driveways, parking lots and alleys
  • Motorists visiting Florida who are not familiar with the area and streets

These are just examples; your case may be different, but you can still contact me. I offer a free consultation.

What Types Of Damages Do You Need?

Every case is different, but there are some needs that are fairly common such as:

  • Medical costs
  • Lost wages and benefits
  • Pain and suffering
  • Long-term care
  • The loss of a loved one
  • Funeral and burial expenses

It is important to have an attorney with the experience to accurately value your claim. You and your family will need compensation that covers your past, present and future losses from the accident. I know how to look ahead with you and determine what you will need.
