According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 70,000 pedestrians are injured and nearly 5,000 are killed in the United States each year. This means that on average, one pedestrian is killed every two hours and another is injured every 7 minutes. In 2012, Florida had the 3rd highest number of pedestrian fatalities nationwide, behind only California and Texas. In a 2014 report by Smart Growth America (Dangerous by Design), the four deadliest cities in America for pedestrians are all in Florida – Orlando, Tampa, Jacksonville, and Miami. Older adults are among the most at-risk groups for pedestrian accidents. At Romano Law Group, we are dedicated to fighting for the victims of these accidents and recovering the compensation they deserve.

Sharing the Road

Our Florida roads are filled with a variety of vehicles and pedestrians. When the two collide, the results are usually catastrophic injuries for the pedestrian. Pedestrians can suffer broken bones, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputations, or other severe trauma.

Sadly, these accidents are usually preventable. It is often the negligence of the driver that leaves the pedestrian victim and their family suffering. Common causes of pedestrian accidents include:

  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Running red lights
  • Failing to stop at stop signs
  • Failing to watch for pedestrians at a crosswalk
  • Driving while distracted, such as texting
