When a distracted driver who was not paying attention runs into you on the road or hits someone you love who is walking across a street, serious personal injuries are suffered in the crash. Injuries may be the result of the impact of hitting the car or being thrown onto the pavement. Injuries from pedestrian collisions are very often catastrophic.
PEDESTRIAN CAR COLLISIONS CAUSE LIFE CHANGING INJURIES
There are some common mistakes Florida drivers make that lead to bicycle accidents. It’s the bike rider who pays the price for this carelessness. Many drivers act as though roads are made exclusively for cars. Some are under the false impression cyclists don’t belong on streets. Others simply don’t know safe practices on the road regarding bicyclists.
EXPERIENCE MATTERS WITH BICYCLE INJURY CASES
In Florida in 2009, almost 500 pedestrians died after being hit by a car. Thirty people lost their lives in Pinellas County accidents alone. The grim reality is that Clearwater and the Tampa Bay area has earned its reputation as the second most dangerous metropolitan area for pedestrians in the United States.
