Pedestrian Accident and Death Attorneys
Hire our West Palm Beach personal injury attorneys
South Florida is a beautiful place to walk around. Whether you are going for a run in your neighborhood, or taking a walk in the busy downtown areas of West Palm Beach, Jupiter, North Palm Beach, Lake Worth, or Boca Raton, being out on foot is what Palm Beach County is all about.
However, sharing the roadways with other motorists, including passenger vehicles, trucks, vans, and other vehicles, can turn dangerous or even deadly if the other driver isn’t paying attention, and strikes a pedestrian.
Florida has extremely strict laws in place to protect pedestrians, which include lower speed limits in areas of high pedestrian traffic, safety signs, and designated crosswalks. In fact, it’s illegal for vehicles to continue through a crosswalk when a pedestrian is present.
But, this is how many pedestrians in Florida are injured and killed each year – errant drivers not paying attention to their surroundings. Worse yet, there have even been frequent reports in the last few years of pedestrian-involved hit-and-runs.
