Tampa Pedestrian Accident Lawyer
According to NHTSA Traffic Safety Facts, the number of pedestrian fatalities fell from 5,585 in 1995 to 4,280 in 2010 (that’s nearly 12 a day), but there were an estimated 70,000 reported pedestrian injuries in 2010. In 2011, 7,039 accidents involving pedestrians were reported in Florida, 497 of pedestrians died. However, we know from experience and research into hospital records that only a fraction of pedestrian crashes that cause injury are ever recorded by the police. Not surprisingly, many of these occurred in a crosswalk. However, we have also been able to assist clients when they are outside of the crosswalk and struck by a car or truck. Another startling statistic are the number of pedestrians struck by drunk drivers.
