West Palm Beach Pedestrian Accident Lawyers
Each year, hundreds of people die and thousands more are injured in pedestrian accidents throughout Florida. In Palm Beach County alone, there are hundreds of pedestrian accidents each year. Most of these accidents can – and should – be avoided by the drivers who cause them. If you have been injured or lost a loved one after being hit by a car, truck, or other vehicles, we want to help you fight for just compensation.
Seeking Compensation for Pedestrian Accident Injuries
While all drivers are legally required to exercise care behind the wheel, all too often, we represent accident victims who have been seriously injured by drivers who have violated this duty of care. Sadly, while collisions between vehicles and pedestrians are often the drivers’ fault, it is typically the pedestrians who suffer the consequences. Common mistakes that lead to pedestrian accidents include things like:
- Failing to yield to pedestrians in crosswalks
- Turning left or right into pedestrians in intersection crosswalks
- Running into pedestrians who are walking or running on the side of the road
In West Palm Beach, our weather allows us to walk and run outside all year long. However, despite the number of pedestrians in our area, it is clear that many drivers still aren’t watching for pedestrians on or near the road.
Distractions and Alcohol Present Major Risks for Pedestrians
While there are many issues that can lead to drivers injuring and killing pedestrians, two of the biggest issues are distracted and drunk driving. Today, drivers are talking on the phone, texting, reading GPS directions, setting playlists, and even taking photos behind the wheel. In West Palm Beach and other areas throughout Palm Beach County, especially at night and on weekends, alcohol-impaired drivers are a major concern for pedestrians as well.
Between mobile devices and in-car technology, drivers have plenty to keep them occupied without actually looking at the road. With locals and vacationers alike, you will often see drivers looking down toward their laps or at their center consoles instead of focusing on their surroundings. We all know how dangerous it is to drive drunk. But, studies have shown that it can actually be more dangerous to be distracted behind the wheel.
