Walking through most South Florida cities can be a frustrating experience. We are a car-centric society with little or no concern for people crossing our sunbathed streets. Our roads were not designed with a pedestrian-friendly approach in mind. Yet many pedestrians are out there during the holidays. Whether you are a local or a tourist, it is important you avoid dangerous situations such as distracted and drunk driving.
Florida is one of the best destinations to spend the holidays but also the worst state for pedestrians fatalities. We have good weather, mouthwatering cuisine, pristine beaches and much entertainment. It’s the perfect time to go out for a walk but also the riskiest season of the year. If you or a loved one is involved in a pedestrian accident this holiday season, make sure you hire an experienced Miami pedestrian accident attorney.
There are many pedestrians shopping or attending holiday gatherings during this time of the year. In order to prevent accidents or injuries from happening, you can follow a few tips:
As we enter the holiday season, these statistics can increase. More tourists and holiday shoppers will venture into our streets rushing from place to place trying to have a good time. But while drivers are trying to find the impossible parking spot, pedestrians are walking in every direction, which can lead to a deadly accident.
It’s important you provide your Miami pedestrian accident attorney with relevant information regarding your accident. The more information you provide your attorney, the more chances to prove who is at fault. We can help you during the investigation of your claim and make sure your rights are fully protected.
Liability is based on negligence. In other words, the at-fault party generally compensates the victim. As long as you prove someone was negligent at the time of the crash, you will be able to receive compensation for all your losses.
