Contact the Florida Personal Injury Law Team today to learn more about pedestrian accidents and how we can help if you’ve been hurt.
Port St. Lucie Pedestrian Accident Lawyer | Helping Injured Pedestrians
Pedestrian accidents are often the most devastating, as a person simply walking down the street stands very little chance against the sheer size and weight of a moving motor vehicle. Our Port St. Lucie auto accident lawyer will fight for the full compensation you need to get back on your feet once again.
Where Do Pedestrian Accidents Happen Most?
Many people assume that pedestrian accidents occur most frequently at intersections. This is untrue. In fact, most pedestrian accidents occur on crosswalks or sidewalks. Perhaps unsurprisingly, pedestrian accidents most often happen in cities, not rural areas. They also frequently happen at night, due to decreased visibility. They also often happen due to a wide array of other types of driver negligence, including driving while intoxicated, speeding, rolling through/failing to stop at stop signs, failing to yield the right of way to pedestrians, and more.
After an accident, it is critical that you hire a knowledgeable Port St. Lucie pedestrian accident lawyer who can gather and present enough evidence to prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence. As long as we satisfy the burden of proof, you should receive financial compensation to help you deal with any of the damages you’ve incurred because of your accident. These damages include:
- The loss of enjoyment of life
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Medical bills
- Loss of consortium
- Permanent disability
- Mental anguish
Remember, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Florida is four years, so be sure to file your claim within four years of the date of your accident. The sooner you reach out to us, the sooner we can begin working on your case.
