Types of Pedestrian Accident Injuries
Florida has one of the highest rates of pedestrian accidents and fatalities in the country – averaging 2.73 deaths per 100,000 people between 2008 and 2017. Unfortunately, pedestrians are among the most vulnerable users of Florida roads. With nothing to protect them from impact, pedestrians almost always incur serious injuries when struck by cars and trucks, such as:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Fractures and broken bones
- Spinal injuries
- Severe cuts and lacerations
- Loss of one or more limbs
Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents
Simply put, your injuries were caused by the actions of another person. You were struck by a vehicle while walking on the street or sidewalk. Who is responsible for your injuries depends on the actions of the driver of the automobile that struck you or even the road you were walking on. Common causes of pedestrian accidents include:
- Distracted driving or driving while texting
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Failing to come to a complete stop
- Driving a poorly maintained vehicle
- Failing to maintain control of the vehicle
- Poorly light streets
- Unsafe road crossings
- Lack of adequate sidewalks
