Perhaps the most crippling types of physical injuries result when an automobile strikes a pedestrian, as the individual has no protection whatsoever from the oncoming vehicle.
It is therefore imperative for victims of these accidents to retain a qualified and competent personal injury attorney, as the litany of injuries that is sure to arise could be downright devastating.
With so many popular walkways throughout South Florida -- from Lincoln Road on Miami Beach up to Las Olas Boulevard in the heart of Fort Lauderdale and on through to Worth Avenue in Palm Beach -- the chances of pedestrians being struck by an automobile in this region is greater than just about anywhere in the United States.
To make matters worse, the number of senior citizens behind the wheel in Florida is second in the nation, trailing only California. However, it is estimated that by the year 2030, one out of every four drivers in the Sunshine State will be 65 years of age or older.
Walkers and joggers in South Florida are at a heightened danger by the torrential rains that befall our region during Hurricane Season from June through November, leaving roadways slippery and precarious. And with beaches, eye-catching architecture, and the eclectic mix of people from cultures all around the world dotting our landscape, it is understandable that drivers have a reputation for becoming easily distracted in South Florida.
