We will Fight to Hold the At-Fault Driver Accountable
Medical care can quickly add up, especially if you have severe injuries. If your accident was not your fault, you should not get stuck paying expensive medical bills. Our attorneys will fight to hold the driver who caused your injuries financially liable.
We can help you seek compensation for your medical treatment. This includes the cost of:
- Surgical procedures
- Medical equipment
You may also seek awards for ongoing treatment and future needs, such as:
- Physical therapy
- Cognitive rehabilitation
- Long-term nursing care
If you have missed work because of your injuries, we can help you pursue compensation for your lost wages. If your pedestrian accident has left you unable to return to your previous line of work, or if you cannot work at all, we can help you fight for your lost earning capacity.
You could Receive Awards for Your Pain and Suffering
Pain and suffering damages award victims for the physical, mental, and emotional consequences of the accident. These damages may include compensation for:
- Loss of mobility
- Loss of a limb or bodily function
- Reduced capacity to enjoy life
- Mental anguish
Seeking Compensation on Behalf of a Loved One
If your family member died because of injuries they sustained in a pedestrian accident, we could help you pursue awards on their behalf. This includes the cost of their final medical care, funeral and burial expenses, and the value of the deceased’s lost support and services.
Florida Statutes §768.21 also allows surviving family members to seek compensation for their loss of companionship and pain and suffering due to their loved one’s death.

Let Us Take the Stress out of Your Insurance Claims
Your personal injury protection (PIP) insurance will cover a portion of your medical care costs. According to Florida Statute §627.736, PIP pays for 80 percent of reasonable, medically necessary treatment received within 14 days of the accident. However, PIP does not compensate for your lost wages, pain, and suffering, or other damages.
We can help you seek a PIP settlement. We can also help you pursue additional damages and medical costs exceeding your PIP from the driver who caused your accident. We can:
- File your claims and submit your demand letters
- Obtain, complete, and submit the paperwork required by the insurance agencies
- Manage and adhere to deadlines regarding your claim
- Gather evidence and build a case for driver negligence
- Review your settlement offers
- Represent your best interests throughout the negotiation process
We will Work to Prove Liability
To win your case, you must show that another party’s negligence led to your accident and injuries. Alcohol use and speeding are two major risk factors for pedestrian accidents.
Other examples of driver negligence that may result in a pedestrian accident include:
- Failure to stop at an intersection or crosswalk
- Making an improper turn
- Texting and driving
- Driving drowsy
- Aggressive driving
- Failure to maintain lane position
- Failure to yield to a pedestrian’s right of way
We will investigate your accident and build your case using your medical records, witness accounts, expert testimony, and crash site data.
If a vehicle problem contributed to your accident, you might also have a case against a manufacturer or roadway owner. Some issues that could qualify include defective brakes, inadequate lighting, and road issues.

There is a Time Limit for Pursuing Your Case
If we cannot resolve your case through insurance, we can take your case to court. Florida allows four years to take legal action for personal injury and two years to file a wrongful death lawsuit, according to Florida Statutes §95.11. In general, if your time limit expires, you cannot seek awards through a lawsuit.
Insurance agents may also use an expired statute of limitations as a reason to deny your claims. To ensure plenty of time to gather evidence and work through the insurance process, it is a good idea to get started on your case as soon as possible following your accident.
