HOW WE CAN HELP
You may be facing seemingly insurmountable medical expenses, lost wages and an uncertain future. Florida Auto Law attorneys are experienced at fighting for victims who are injured on foot, while cycling or on any wheeled recreational craft by a negligent driver.
We think the key to good legal representation is preparation. Our hands-on team and in-house investigator work in partnership with our attorneys to closely examine the details of your accident, and we will fight aggressively to help you recover fair compensation from those who harmed you.
We consider all aspects of the crash, including:
VICTIM OF A PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENT?
Many Florida roads were constructed to suit the needs of vehicular traffic. Pedestrians are at a natural disadvantage and stand to lose the most when struck by any type of moving vehicle. Pedestrian injuries are often severe, including brain injuries, spinal injuries, paralysis and loss of life. If you are hit by a driver who flees the scene or who has insufficient insurance, your uninsured motorist (UM) coverage may provide important benefits.
Channeling of pedestrian traffic within a construction site
Negligent drivers crashing into homes, storefronts or restaurants
Car dealerships, parking lots & valet drivers
Premises liability coverage, facility that creates visible obstruction
Inadequate or malfunctioning lighting issues
Vehicle ownership issues, rideshare, delivery, rental etc.
Adequacy of sidewalks, crosswalks, and pedestrian zones
VICTIM OF A MOBILE PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENT?
Due to the inherent lack of protection on a bicycle or small recreational ride, many such accidents have tragic outcomes. Mobile pedestrian options are rapidly being introduced as a cost efficient alternative to driving. We routinely share the road with bicycles, scooters, mopeds and skateboards. Increasingly we see Segway, bike shares, e-scooters, and pedal party bikes, all of which create new dangers.
Golf carts are also popular on Florida’s secondary roads. Often seen as a nuisance around town, many drivers race past and swerve around a slower moving golf cart. With no active restraints, passengers are easily ejected and susceptible to dangerous rollovers.
