Tampa Pedestrian Accidents Attorneys
Thousands of Cases Handled since 1999
The majority of pedestrian accidents occur in urban areas where traffic and people are the densest. In a large metropolitan area like Tampa, pedestrians and motorists must share the public areas. Crosswalks, bus stops, school zones, and even sidewalks can all be places where pedestrians are injured. When these accidents occur due to the negligent or reckless behavior of drivers, pedestrians have legal recourse.
If you or someone you love has been injured as a pedestrian through negligence, it is vital to involve an attorney from Harmon Parker, P.A. Individuals represented by a reputable attorney are more likely to recover greater compensation in personal injury claims than those who settle with the insurance company alone. Insurance companies will always try to deny or reduce your damages to protect their bottom line. You need to fight back with a legal advocate whose sole aim is to see that your best interests are protected. That is what our Tampa pedestrian accident lawyers have been doing since 1999.
Pedestrian Accidents in Florida
Pedestrians are often exposed to the unpredictability of drivers when walking in or near high-traffic areas.
These accidents can be caused by:
- Driver inattention
- Driver unfamiliarity with the area
- Distracted driving, such as texting, eating, drinking, grooming, talking to passengers, or adjusting GPS systems while driving
- Driving while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
- Failing to give right of way to pedestrians
- Failing to observe traffic signs, signals, and crosswalks
- Aggressive driving
In any type of traffic accident, pedestrians will likely suffer the worst when it comes to injuries. These injuries can range from fractures, sprains, and bruises to organ damage, loss of limbs, traumatic brain injuries, and spinal cord damage.
Possible Damages in a Pedestrian Accident Case
In Florida, owners and operators of a motor vehicle have a duty of care to others on the road through the maintenance of their own vehicle and the manner that they drive their vehicle. When it comes to pedestrian accidents, you will likely be entitled to damages if a vehicle driver caused you harm as a result of negligence.
There are several types of damages that you may be entitled to, which include medical expenses and lost wages. You can also be entitled to “non-economic damages,” which can include compensation for mental anguish, and pain and suffering.
