Were You Seriously Injured In A Crash?
Pedestrians lack the same physical protections motorists enjoy in their vehicles, which is why there are a number of strict laws in place to protect them. However, legal protections can only do so much to stop a reckless or negligent driver from causing a serious crash. No matter which protected area you were walking along at the time of the accident, you deserve the chance to fight for your rights in court or at the negotiation table to secure the compensation you need to cover any medical expenses or other damages you may have incurred.

The Dangers Of Being A Pedestrian
Safety organizations are constantly publishing studies investigating the dangers of driving. In 2014, Smart Growth America’s National Complete Streets Coalition released a study, Dangerous by Design (PDF), that quantified the risk of being a pedestrian in different states and major metropolitan areas across the country.
Their Pedestrian Danger Index (PDI) calculates the likeliness that a pedestrian could be hit and killed in a car crash. Researchers determined the national average to be 52.2 – the Tampa – St. Petersburg – Clearwater area scored a 190.13, the second most dangerous area for pedestrians in the nation.
