Naples Pedestrian Accident Attorney

Information About Pedestrian Accident Injuries

Any time an automobile is involved in a collision there is a great risk of injury or death, but this is especially true when the driver strikes a pedestrian. Whereas the driver and passengers have seatbelts, airbags and two tons of steel chassis to protect them, the walker is entirely unprotected against receiving the full force of the impact. This is clearly reflected by statistics issued by the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, which reveal that in 2010 there were 7,894 pedestrian accidents in our state, 92% of which resulted in injury to the victim—additionally 499 people were killed in accidents of this type.

Those who survive being hit by a car are commonly left with catastrophic injuries ranging from broken bones and crushed limbs to a traumatic brain injury or paralyzing spinal cord injuries. The victim may face a long and painful period of recovery, or might have sustained a permanent disability that will have widespread consequences throughout the individual's life. We may be able to help you recover financial compensation by filing a personal injury claim against the driver, or a wrongful death lawsuit over the tragic loss of a family member.

Was the driver at fault for your pedestrian accident?

A large percentage of pedestrian accidents are caused by negligent or reckless drivers who are fully or partially responsible for the accident. It can often be proven that the driver caused the accident while distracted, such as by texting while driving, or while fatigued or under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Bring the case to us at Pittman Law Firm, P.L., where we have nearly two decades of experience fighting for the rights of the injured. We will review the situation to determine whether you have grounds for legal action, and can begin working on your case immediately.
