Boca Raton Pedestrian Accident Lawyers

Florida led the nation in pedestrian accident deaths in 2020, as it has for each of the last 10 years. Florida & four other states accounted for nearly half of all US pedestrian accident fatalities in 2019, according to the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA).

368 Floridians lost their lives in pedestrian accidents in the period January-June, 2019 alone.

Pedestrians are extremely vulnerable to catastrophic or even fatal injuries in such accidents, as they have no physical protections surrounding them while they are out walking, jogging, crossing roads or even making their way across busy parking lots.

The larger the motor vehicle involved in a pedestrian accident, the higher the probability the pedestrian will sustain devastating injury or lose their life.

Trucks, vans, buses and SUVs cause the most catastrophic injuries when colliding with pedestrians. Those struck by an SUV are twice as likely to die as those hit by an ordinary passenger car.

Pedestrian Accidents are Often Caused by Reckless Driver Behavior. Our Boca Accident Attorneys Can Help Those Injured Hold the Negligent to Account.

Among the major reasons cited for pedestrian accidents, injuries & fatalities:

  • Alcohol or drug impairment, which accounted for nearly half of all pedestrian fatalities in 2018 alone.
  • Danger-prone road conditions, such as long distances between intersections and very wide roadways in places where pedestrians need to cross.
  • Unsafe driving behaviors, such as speeding, drowsy or distracted driving.
  • Drivers disregarding traffic regulations, such as running red lights, yield and stop signs or making unsafe or unlawful turns.
  • Drivers swerving to avoid an accident with another motor vehicle or to avoid hitting objects, animals or debris in the road.
  • Increasingly, pedestrian accidents are occurring at night, due to both vehicles and pedestrians being less visible, indicating a need to provide better-marked road crossings, improved street lighting and other safety measures.
