Miami Pedestrian Accident Attorney

You already know there are risks when you are on foot and walking around vehicles and other fast-moving objects like bikes and scooters. That is why you probably take all necessary precautions like using crosswalks, watching for green lights, and checking your surroundings. However, you cannot control the actions of everyone around you.

Vladimir Tsirkin & Associates understand that an injury can leave you wondering what to do next. If another person has caused your injuries, you should not be put into financial jeopardy. When you need a Miami pedestrian accident attorney, call us today.

Take Precautions

The Miami metropolitan area is a very busy place all year-round, but particularly from Spring Break through August. There are millions of people who live here and millions more who come visit. This can lead to disaster when it comes to pedestrian safety.

During the latest reporting year in Florida, there were:

  • 9,420 pedestrian crashes reported
  • 659 pedestrian crash fatalities
  • 8,126 pedestrian crash injuries

As you can see by looking at those numbers, nearly every pedestrian crash results in an injury or fatality. It is not uncommon for us to see the following injuries:

  • Broken or dislocated bones
  • Severe lacerations or amputations
  • Internal organ damage
  • Internal bleeding
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries

The medical costs alone for treating these injuries can be enough to put a family in financial ruin, especially if insurance does not offer enough in terms of a settlement. We know that insurance rarely takes into account other hidden accident costs such as lost income, rehabilitation costs, possible home and vehicle accommodations, or emotional and psychological damages.

If another person’s negligence is responsible for a pedestrian accident, they should be held accountable for their actions.

We know that many pedestrian crashes happen in areas where the pedestrian has the right-of-way:

  • Intersections with walk lights
  • Pedestrian crosswalks
  • Sidewalks and boardwalks
  • Parking lots

Often, we find that the drivers responsible for crashes are impaired by drugs and alcohol or distracted by their phones.

We also need to mention that we are seeing a rise in pedestrian injuries due to electric scooter incidents. These new devices are not well regulated and inexperienced riders often crash into people on sidewalks. Injuries from these crashes are often just as severe as injuries from regular vehicle versus pedestrian crashes.
