Pedestrian vs. vehicle accidents usually don’t have a great outcome for the pedestrian. But, these types of accidents are not uncommon. Pedestrian accidents can occur at any place and at any time and can involve adults and children alike.

“On average, a pedestrian is struck by a motor vehicle every hour in the state of Florida. These pedestrian accidents account for nearly 500 deaths and over 7,000 injuries a year. The innocent victims of these accidents can be left with injuries that have life altering consequences,” says Charlie Telfair, of Lutz, Bobo & Telfair, P.A.

Both pedestrians and motorists have a responsibility to follow the laws of the road. Depending on the circumstances of the pedestrian accident, the pedestrian, driver or both can be responsible for the collision. When the driver of an automobile is found to be completely or partially at fault, they can be held accountable. This includes compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and emotional damages.

If you have been seriously injured or lost a loved one to a pedestrian accident, it is important to speak with experienced attorneys. For 25 years, the trial lawyers of Lutz, Bobo & Telfair, P.A. have helped injury victims across Southwest Florida and they’re waiting to help you.
