What Damages Are Available in Pedestrian Accident Cases?

Representing Orlando, the Four Corners, Tampa and Nearby Areas of Florida

According to preliminary data from the first six months of 2014, Florida had the highest number of pedestrian traffic fatalities in the country. Pedestrians are the most vulnerable population of road users, with the highest likelihood of severe injury or death in a car accident.

The Governors Highway Safety Association determined that Florida and three other states accounted for nearly half of the nation’s pedestrian accident fatalities in 2013. Tragically, initial data from 2014 suggests the trend will continue for a second year.

Because of the high probability of serious trauma, pedestrian victims of car accidents could stand to recover substantial compensation. Depending on the circumstances of your case, you might be entitled to damages such as medical expenses, lost wages, and more.
