Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrian accidentsOf all automobile accidents, pedestrian accidents involving a car tend to be the most difficult. Pedestrians simply do not have much of a chance against a large, fast-moving car, and as a result many pedestrian car collisions result in serious injury or death. In fact, almost 5,000 pedestrians are killed in traffic accidents every year. Many more pedestrians are seriously injured. In many cases, these accidents are caused by driver inattention and recklessness and are preventable. At Flaxman Law Group, we have represented many survivors of pedestrian accidents and many families bereaved by pedestrian accidents. We have been able to help these survivors get the legal assistance they needed to pay for quality medical care, funeral expenses, and other costs associated with the accident. We have also given these survivors a voice in court and have helped them get dangerous drivers off the road before they injured someone else.

Pedestrian accidents are difficult because they can cause such serious injury. Traffic accidents involving pedestrians routinely cause severe injuries to the neck, head, and spinal cord. Because these areas are so fragile, permanent injury, nerve damage and paralysis are quite common. These injuries may require years of rehabilitation and accident survivors may need to hire caregivers or have their homes made accessible - these significant expenses may simply not be covered by insurance companies. That is why hiring qualified Florida lawyers is so important. Experienced Florida attorneys can ensure that survivors get the assistance they need to get long-term help after an accident.

Loss of the use of a limb and broken or dislocated limbs are also quite common in collisions involving a car and pedestrian. These injuries can cause a survivor to miss weeks of work. The injuries themselves may require many months of physiotherapy and may cause many years of pain. Unfortunately, many insurance companies are willing to pay only for the upfront costs of an injury — if that. The qualified attorneys at Flaxman Law Group can ensure that you are aware of all your rights, so that you can get assistance for a full recovery — no matter how long it takes. We can help you get the assistance you are entitled to under law so that you can recover fully and replace lost income.

Without qualified Florida attorneys representing your case, you may end up paying for large medical expenses, medical equipment, lost wages, and other expenses out of your own pocket. This can put you in debt and jeopardize the quality of care you receive.
