Palm Coast Pedestrian Accident Attorney
The beautiful weather in Florida makes walking a pleasant way to get around. Many individuals walk to get to work, to run errands, and to go to school. We rightfully expect that the city planners designed roads and sidewalks to be safe for pedestrians, especially in areas with heavy foot traffic. Additionally, we assume that drivers will take appropriate care around people walking on the side of the road or in parking lots.
Tragically, every year far too many pedestrians are seriously injured by drivers. Thousands are even killed. Being hit by a car while walking can leave victims and their families unsure what to do next.
The average speed and weight of an automobile can do terrible damage to the human body. Injuries from an accident can be permanent. Victims may find themselves burdened with unaffordable medical bills, and they might also lose crucial wages because they are forced to take time off work to recover. Severe injuries, like those to the brain or spine, could mean that a victim’s life will never be the same.
Many victims of pedestrian accidents do have legal recourse. If someone else’s negligence caused your accident, you might be entitled to financial compensation. Those hurt while on the job may qualify for workers’ compensation benefits.
