Common Causes Behind Florida Pedestrian Accidents

When a pedestrian accident happens, negligence is usually to blame. To recover compensation, you need to show that the driver did not operate the vehicle safely, and this carelessness caused the collision. Negligent acts by the driver of the motor vehicle may include:

  • Drinking while driving;
  • Speeding;
  • Failure to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk;
  • Not complying with traffic signals;
  • Texting while driving, or other forms of distracted driving; and,
  • Many other risky behaviors behind the wheel.

However, a pedestrian can also be negligent in such an incident. Fault is extremely important in a pedestrian accident because of a concept under Florida law, termed comparative negligence. If you were blameworthy in causing the crash, your rights could be affected. Your compensation could be reduced by such acts as:

  • Failing to walk in a crosswalk;
  • Crossing an intersection in violation of traffic signals;
  • Talking on the phone, texting, or surfing the internet while walking; and,
  • Other unsafe conduct.

You May Be Entitled to Compensation for Your Losses

Because most Florida drivers carry auto insurance as required by law, you will initially pursue compensation by filing a claim with the policyholder’s insurer. You may seek damages for such losses as:

  • Medical procedures, treatment, medications, and equipment;
  • Lost wages, if your injuries prevent you from working;
  • Pain and suffering;
  • Diminished quality of life;
  • Scarring and disfigurement; and,
  • Additional monetary damages that depend on the details of your case.

It is not uncommon for an insurance company to deny payment or offer a lower amount than you requested in your claim. Insurers like Geico, State Farm, Allstate, and others do not become major multinational companies by paying out full compensation to victims of accidents. Their employees are specially trained to get you to settle for as little as possible.

For this reason, it is critical to retain an attorney to represent you as early on the process as possible. A lawyer will fight for you when filing a pedestrian accident claim, and will protect your interests when engaging in negotiations with an insurance company. If our legal team cannot get the compensation you deserve by law, we will take the battle to court to enforce your rights.
