We Assist Persons Injured While Walking on the Sidewalks or Street
Florida is a large state with several large urban settings that contribute to increased pedestrian accidents and injuries. A 2009 Governors Highway Safety Report showed that Florida ranks among the highest states for Pedestrian Traffic Fatalities. In fact, a report by the US Department of Transportation National Highway Traffic Safety Administration ranks five Florida cities in the top ten of pedestrian fatality rates of all US cities. These are alarming figures. To learn more about pedestrian accident statistics or ways to stay safe please visit one of these sites:

Our attorneys understand that there is no amount of money that can compensate a family for the loss of a loved one. In a wrongful death claim, these damages can be substantial. They can include not merely reimbursement for medical and hospital bills to care for the deceased victim before his or her death, but also damages for the loss of future income or financial support that the deceased victim would have provided to his or her family if the victim had not died. Additionally, damages for the loss of companionship suffered by a surviving spouse and/or children are also factored in.
