Pedestrian Accident Lawyer
Orlando, Tampa, Lakeland
Collisions between pedestrians and cars, trucks or busses often result in severe injuries and fatalities. Crosswalks, parking lots, sidewalks and other heavily trafficked areas are common sites for pedestrian accidents. If you have been struck by a vehicle in Orlando, Tampa, or Lakeland and believe you have a claim, a pedestrian accident lawyer at Burnetti, P.A. may be able to help you.
Pedestrian Accident Injuries
Even though a vehicle is substantially larger than a pedestrian, a pedestrian may not always see the vehicle before it strikes; even if the pedestrian does see the vehicle, they may not be able to move fast enough to avoid a collision. The resulting injuries may be devastating and include:
- Broken bones
- Severe burns
- “Road rash”
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Loss of life
Pedestrian accident victims may require medical care, hospitalization, surgeries, physical therapy or rehabilitation. The quality of life may never return to the way it was before the accident.
Working Justice for You
A pedestrian may not always have the right of way; however, drivers have a responsibility to drive safe and to be aware of their surroundings. Some of the most common pedestrian and crosswalk accidents may involve collisions that were caused by a car, bus, semi-truck, taxi or truck driver who:
- Failed to see the pedestrian due to limited or poor visibility
- Drove drunk or distracted
- Ignored a stop light or traffic signal
- Failed to yield the right of way
- Did not see the pedestrian because they were focusing on traffic
- Drove recklessly or exceeded the speed limit
- Violated traffic laws
- Failed to take caution in a school zone or residential area
In addition to negligent drivers, pedestrian accidents may also be caused by defective vehicle parts, including faulty brakes that prohibit a driver from stopping. Burnetti, P.A. can investigate a potential claim to determine if negligence or defective parts contributed to the collision, and can draw on experience to know what an injury or loss is worth.
