Anytime a person is in or around the roadway, they are running a risk. We need to understand that our bodies are not made to take the impact of a vehicle that weighs thousands of pounds. Unfortunately, we sometimes forget just how dangerous an impact can be. Even when we are careful and follow all the rules (use intersections with lights, cross in the appropriate crosswalks, etc.) other people’s negligence often causes us major harm.
For the latest reporting year in Florida, there were 9,420 pedestrian crashes reported. Out of those:
Nearly everyone who is struck by a vehicle is injured or killed. Those who are injured often suffer from severe injuries that require long rehabilitation periods. Sometimes they are permanently disabled. This can prevent them from working and supporting themselves and their families.
Do you know if insurance companies will offer a settlement that will cover all of these expenses?
We also know that vehicles are not the only danger that pedestrians face. Over the last year, we have seen a rise in the number of pedestrian injuries due to scooter crashes. Inexperienced riders often plow full speed into other people in and around the roadway, causing major injuries. These scooters also become trip and fall hazards when they are discarded after a ride.
Sometimes, pedestrian crashes happen due to drivers who were simply not paying attention to their surroundings. We often find that drivers in these incidents were distracted by their phones. We also know that drunk drivers are a major cause of harm.
