Orlando Pedestrian Accident Lawyer Helps Victims Of Pedestrian Accidents In Central Florida
Pedestrians are particularly prone to suffering serious injuries when involved in an accident caused by vehicles such as cars, accidents and trucks. The disproportioned weight and speed of the vehicle can cause long-life injuries or even death to a person.

Common Injuries In Pedestrian Accidents
Pedestrian injuries are caused by both the initial impact with the motor vehicle and the secondary impact, which happens when the pedestrian strikes the pavement. People can have many different types of serious injuries such as:
- Broken bones
- Spinal and neck injuries
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- In the worst accidents, pedestrians can even lose their lives
If you or a loved one has been struck by a car, you need an accident lawyer to help make sure you are fully compensated for your medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost income. Our pedestrian accident lawyer have helped many injured people throughout Orlando and Central Florida and welcome the opportunity to discuss your injuries.
Even though your injuries may be serious, you will still have to prove that the driver of the car was at fault before their insurance company will treat you fairly. They may allege that you were jaywalking or should not have been walking on the street. Our personal injury attorneys will make a complete determination of the facts of your claim, while making a full calculation of your damages. Once we have gathered this information, we will present it to the negligent driver's insurance company. Our dedicated approach has led to effective results for clients in a number of instances.
