Advocacy That Works After A Pedestrian Accident
If you or a loved one suffered injuries in a pedestrian accident, you are certainly not alone. A prominent government agency as well as a well-established nonprofit organization have identified Florida as a state with a high rate of pedestrian accidents in recent years.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Organization, a division of the U.S. Department of Transportation ranked Florida as No. 4 in the nation in 2020 for pedestrian deaths per 100,000 residents. In addition, Safe Growth America (SGA), a research and advocacy organization in Washington, D.C., pinpointed seven Florida metro areas among the top 20 in the nation for pedestrian deaths. Daytona-Ormand Beach was No. 1 and Tampa was No. 4 on the most recent list, issued in 2022.
The lists cited above tallied fatalities, but many additional pedestrians have suffered nonfatal injuries in the same time period. According to SGA, pedestrian accidents have increased significantly in the last few years. If you or your loved one will be among those counted in the next research reports because of a recent accident, we recommend that you get legal advice right away. At Amethyst Law Group, we provide free initial consultations.
Your Challenges After A Hit-And-Run Or Any Other Type Of Pedestrian Accident
Medically speaking, you likely face a long, hard road to recovery. You may require surgery, hospitalization and in-patient rehabilitation. At home, you might need to widen doorways, install ramps and otherwise restructure your living space to accommodate temporary or lifelong disabilities. Your traumatic brain injury (TBI), spinal cord injury, broken bones or back, neck or shoulder injuries alter your lifestyle significantly.
Financially, it won’t take long to discover just how expensive medical treatments can be after a serious accident. Our personal injury lawyers focus on helping clients recover compensation promptly.
