Living in the sunshine state certainly has its fair share of perks; beautiful sunny days, warm and welcoming air, lots of outdoor activities and plenty of people partaking in them. Along with this, and the current state of our economy, more and more people are taking to foot or bicycle as a means of transportation, especially during the cooler fall, winter and spring months. With more individuals partaking in pedestrian activities comes more opportunity for unfortunate accidents to occur. Knowing where to turn if you get injured while walking, jogging, running or bicycling can mean the difference in the stress level involved with the accident and the amount of damages you recover. I have been working as an Orlando pedestrian accident attorney for over 29 years now and I have the experience necessary to approach these types of cases the way they must be handled.
Pedestrian Accident Facts:
Approximately 5,000 individuals partaking in pedestrian activities are killed and an additional 100,000 are injured from being hit by a car in the United States each year. Florida alone has witnessed over 500 deaths and 9,000 injuries in the past year. Often times these accidents are caused by negligent motor vehicle operators who ignore speed limits, stop sigs, construction areas and crosswalks. Knowing your rights when involved in this type of accident can be the difference between having to pay all of your own hospital bills or being compensated adequately for the injuries, lost wages, and pain and suffering you might sustain. It is important to find an experienced pedestrian accident lawyer to represent you in these cases. I offer all of my clients a free consultation when it comes to these types of unfortunate accidents. I will also be your personal attorney from start to finish so you don’t have to worry about dealing with paralegals, investigators or other administrative staff.
In my 29 years of service to Orlando, Deland and Central Florida in general, I have always and will continue to put my clients’ best interest first. Making sure that you have a firm understanding of the process we have to go through together is my first goal. Following that I strive to make every step of the way easy to understand and as stress free as possible. Finally, and just as important, I ensure you receive maximum compensation for the accident you were involved in. So, don’t just trust any attorney in the Orlando area, put your confidence in myself – a 29 year Orlando native and an expert in Orlando pedestrian accident law.
