Fort Myers Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer: Justice for Pedestrian Victims
Florida has a beautiful temperate climate all months of the year, making it an ideal place for pedestrians to walk or bike whenever they need to get somewhere. Unfortunately, all too often, pedestrians are the unexpected victims of automobile accidents. The most recent data released by the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles shows that 7,894 vehicle crashes involved pedestrians in 2010. Of those crashes, 7,290 resulted in injuries to pedestrians and 499 resulted in pedestrian deaths.
Quite simply, pedestrians are no match for the weight, speed, and size of motor vehicles. As a result, pedestrians are much more likely to be injured or killed in a motor vehicle collision than the driver or passengers occupying a vehicle. Pedestrians have no protection from vehicle accidents and often no opportunity to escape before impact, which typically occurs suddenly and without warning. Alcohol only increases the possibility of a collision with a pedestrian. Drunk drivers may not observe pedestrians in a crosswalk, along the side of a roadway, or even walking along a sidewalk. Even if they do notice pedestrians, drivers may not have the reaction skills necessary to avoid a collision due to their intoxicated state.
A Lawyer Can Help You Recover Compensation
If you were injured by a drunk driver, you may have sustained grave injuries. The stress of steadily increasing medical bills, loss of income, pain and suffering related to your injuries and uncertainty as to your future ability to work can all be overwhelming. While financial compensation for your injuries cannot cure all of these concerns, it can make things easier for you and your family while you heal and adapt to a new way of life. Money can never replace a loved one, cure a disability, or bring a person back to health. However, it can ease the transition between your pre-accident life and your post-accident life.
