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.
