How Florida Pedestrian Accidents Happen
Carelessness or driver errors are behind many of these incidents, but the term is negligence in the legal field. To prove your claim in a pedestrian accident, you must show that the responsible party breached a legal duty of care, and you were injured as a result. Some examples of breach include:
- Drunk driving;
- Disobeying traffic signs or signals;
- Failing to yield to pedestrians in a crosswalk;
- Distracted driving, such as texting or talking on the phone; and,
- Other risky acts while driving.
Plus, you must comply with the Florida statute of limitations, which requires you to file a lawsuit within four years after the incident. If you do not sue before the statute expires, you can never recover compensation for your losses.
Potential Compensation For Pedestrian Accident Victims
Florida law allows you to recover damages for the losses you suffer, which may be physical, financial, and emotional. Our pedestrian accident lawyers will file a claim with the responsible driver’s insurance company, seeking compensation for:
- Medical bills, including surgery, emergency care, pain medication, physical therapy, and related treatment;
- Lost wages, if you cannot work because of your injuries;
- Pain and suffering;
- Emotional distress; and
- Additional forms of compensation that may be available in your case.

The Insurance Company Will Fight Your Claim
At The Benenati Law Firm, we understand that accidents can happen to anyone at any time and can change lives forever.
Even when the responsible driver’s fault is clear, you should not expect the insurance company to pay out your claim without a fight. Insurers are businesses, and they will go to great lengths to protect profits. A claims adjuster will find every opportunity to deny compensation, such as by contesting the extent of your injuries.
The insurance company may also reject your claim on the grounds that you were at fault in the incident. In Florida, there is a law regardingcomparative negligence, which could decrease your award if your own conduct was a factor in causing your injuries. You can be sure that the claims adjuster will point out such acts as crossing against the light, failing to walk in a crosswalk, or your level of inebriation.

Don't Just Take Our Word for It
“The Benenati law firm makes you believe that you are the single most important PERSON (not case) to them. Throughout the entire process, they maintained weekly contact with me, asking how I was doing or if I needed anything. I was provided with frequent updates as to how my case was progressing and was pleasantly surprised with the speed at which they were able to reach a substantial settlement. I've had the unfortunate experience of dealing with other well-known personal injury attorneys in Orlando who were unable to provide the level of expertise, care and service that Walter Benenati and his team can!”
“I would like to thank the Benenati Law Firm for helping to take the stress out of dealing with the insurance company and for everyone being very professional and always available to take my calls. The speed of the case being closed exceeded my expectations and any future needs I will definitely be contacting them.”
“My experience with the Benenati Law Firm in Orlando was a great experience. They helped right away after a heartbreaking experience at another law firm. THEY MADE MORE PROGRESS IN MY CASE IN TWO MONTHS THAN 2 YEARS WITH MY FORMER LAW FIRM. I am so grateful.”
