Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents
- Failure to pay attention to road conditions

- Failure to stop before making right hand turns
- Failure to stop at crosswalks
- Inattentive/distracted driving
- Drunk driving
- Speeding/reckless driving
Pedestrians are often faced with long term injuries after their accident.
Many of the injuries sustained include nerve damage, disfigurement, brain
damage, paralysis and in some cases death. Pedestrians that are involved
in accidents due to reckless or negligent drivers may be able to have
a case with us. Our firm works closely with many doctors and specialists
in Tamarac and neighboring cities to accommodate our clients during their recovery.
One of the previous pedestrian cases we handled in the city of Sunrise
involved a minor, which was crossing a residential intersection when he
was struck by a vehicle. Our client, the adolescent, suffered major injuries
including a fracture to his leg, which confined him to a wheel chair for
several months. The determinant factors causing the accident were the
improper maintenance of the center median, the bushes and trees blocking
the view for both pedestrians and vehicles and the defendant’s negligent
operation of her vehicle.
In another case we are currently handling, our client was working on a
ladder fixing a light pole. His car was parked properly with hazard lights
and a cone to indicate it was a work zone. Suddenly, a negligent vehicle
driver struck the ladder our client was working on, causing our client
to fall, and then struck our client’s unoccupied vehicle. According
to the statement provided to the police by the negligent vehicle driver,
the defendant looked down to answer his cell phone, which caused him to
lose control of his car. Hiring a Pedestrian Accident Lawyer - Tamarac
