Naturally, you probably have a number of concerns following the collision. Such as:
- “Will we ever recover from this accident?“
- “How will we pay for these bills?“
- “Can we afford an attorney?“
It is perfectly understandable to be worried about retaining legal representation at this time. The sudden death of a loved one can leave you drained – physically, emotionally and financially. But at Farah & Farah, we operate a contingency-based practice. This means, if we take your case, there are no fees until you have reached a favorable settlement with the responsible party. We don’t collect a single dime. No matter how many meetings we have, no matter how many times you call or how long your case takes, you won’t owe us a thing until the case is won. Our goal is to provide you with the time and resources necessary to heal, while we seek the maximum settlement amount possible for your case.
Unfortunately, a civil claim or suit cannot turn back the clock on your loved one’s accident. It cannot undo the terrible damage inflicted by the at-fault driver. It can however mitigate some of the bills you are undoubtedly facing following the accident, such as:
- Funeral costs
- Medical expenses
- Property damage
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of wages or employment

What Are Some Common Causes of Pedestrian Collisions?
Wrongful death accidents involving pedestrians are unfortunately a serious problem in the state of Florida. With miles of scenic beaches and thongs of people walking to them every day, it is not hard to see why it ranks as one of the most common accidents in the state. The reasons behind such accidents are as varied as the people who are involved. Despite this variation they are all similar in one respect: each one could have been avoided. In most instances, accidents involving cars and pedestrians will include one or more of the following causes:
- Speeding or reckless driving
- Texting or using the phone while driving
- Ignoring or failing to notice clearly marked stop signals
- Failing to yield to pedestrians in walkways or adhering to posted signage
