Pedestrian Accident and Injury LiabilityPedestrian Accident and Injury Attorney Serving All of Central Florida and the surrounding counties.
A pedestrian is defined as a person on foot either walking, running, or using a walker. In broader terms a pedestrian may also be considered a person riding a bike, a skateboarder, a person rollerblading, or a person in a wheelchair.
Unfortunately, we do not live in a perfect society where pedestrians and drivers faithfully observe all traffic and safety laws. The result is thousands of pedestrians being injured or killed every day throughout the country.
There are five basic things drivers are required to do, that if followed, would keep pedestrians out of harms way and even save lives:
- Remain vigilant of their surroundings while driving.
- Refrain from activities that are considered distracting, such as: talking/texting on a cell phone, reading while driving, applying make-up or shaving while driving, or taking eyes off the road to reach for items in the car.
- Exercise proper precaution upon observing a child, a confused or incapacitated person, bicyclist, or other pedestrian on a nearby sidewalk or a roadway.
- Give warning by sounding the horn when necessary.
- Utilize the vehicles lights properly at night.
When a pedestrian is injured or killed as a result of an accident, the law allows the victim to seek justice through civil litigation.
