Frequent Types of Pedestrian Accidents
Here are a few examples of Florida pedestrian accidents:
- You were unlocking your car on the side of the road when a delivery truck struck you.
- You were riding a bicycle when a drunk driver swerved into your path and collided with you.
- You suffered a hit-and-run pedestrian accident when an unknown driver failed to stop for you in the crosswalk, knocked you down, and kept going.
Any type of collision between a motor vehicle and a person on foot usually results in extensive or even catastrophic injuries. Pedestrians often suffer back or spine injuries, traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, paralysis, and in the worst cases, death.
Florida Is One of The Most Dangerous States for People on Foot
The organization Transportation For America states that:
“From 2000 through 2009, more than 47,700 pedestrians were killed in the United States, the equivalent of a jumbo jet full of passengers crashing roughly every month. On top of that, more than 688,000 pedestrians were injured over the decade, a number equivalent to a pedestrian being struck by a car or truck every seven minutes.”
In addition, the organization lists the 10 most dangerous metro areas for persons on foot. Florida cities claim the top four spots on this list.
