Even if you obey all rules of the road, and cross only when you should at a cross walk, as a pedestrian, you can potentially be at risk of sustaining severe injuries on Miami roads. Without the protection offered by a car or other vehicle, a pedestrian stands little chance when involved in a collision. In fact, an average of 13 pedestrians die in traffic accidents across the United States every single day. Children and the elderly are generally most at risk of being struck by a vehicle, but a Miami pedestrian accident could happen to anyone. When it does, a skilled and experienced attorney from Dante Law Firm, P.A. could be your key to recovering the maximum compensation available.
Pedestrian accidents in Miami, and across the United States, are likely to increase as more drivers adopt dangerous habits, such as checking or updating social media, or otherwise using their cellphones while behind the wheel. Whatever the reason, when a 3,000-pound car or other motor vehicle collides with a pedestrian, the consequences are almost certainly going to be severe.
