Dr. Phillips Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

Pedestrians are common in Florida as tourists walk to Walt Disney World, SeaWorld, Universal Orlando, and other theme parks. While walking from place to place can be convenient, especially in places where traffic is congested and parking is limited, it can be dangerous.

Pedestrians are prone to accidents, and when they do happen, they can be serious and even deadly. That’s because pedestrians have nothing to protect them, unlike drivers.

If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a Florida pedestrian accident, make sure you receive the compensation you deserve. See how a Dr. Phillips pedestrian accident lawyer from Goldman Law, P.A. can help.

Causes of Pedestrian Accidents

The main causes of pedestrian crashes include the following:

  • Distracted drivers. When the driver is not paying attention to the road, pedestrian accidents are more likely to occur. Common distractions include using a smartphone, adjusting the radio, using a navigation system, or tending to children or pets.
  • Unmarked crosswalks. Some intersections do not have designated crosswalks. The absence of these crosswalks can make it so a driver forgets to look for pedestrians, increasing the risk of accidents.
  • Faster speeds means drivers may not have enough time to react to an upcoming pedestrian. Speeding also increases the severity of any injuries.
  • Impaired driving. Drivers who operate a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs tend to experience impaired judgment and reaction times. This makes crashes with pedestrians more likely to occur.
  • Lack of experience. Inexperienced drivers are less likely to look for pedestrians at intersections and react accordingly.
  • Pedestrian negligence. In some cases, pedestrians are the ones at fault for their own accidents. Failing to use sidewalks or darting into traffic can make it hard for drivers to react in time to avoid an accident.
