If I am involved in a pedestrian accident, what should I do?
Pedestrians can be the victim of careless drivers just like people in a car can be the victim of careless drivers. Unfortunately, however, if you're a pedestrian the odds of you getting injured even more seriously are higher because you don't have a car around you to protect you. If you're the victim of an accident and you're a pedestrian it's very important that you contact the authorities immediately; call 911, call the police, make sure a police officer comes to the scene and documents what occurred. Then you need to see an experienced Florida attorney who's handled these kind of cases in the past because under the law you can sue the driver responsible and hold them accountable for their actions.
