Many Florida roads were constructed to suit the needs of vehicular traffic. Pedestrians are at a natural disadvantage and stand to lose the most when struck by any type of moving vehicle. Pedestrian injuries are often severe, including brain injuries, spinal injuries, paralysis and loss of life. If you are hit by a driver who flees the scene or who has insufficient insurance, your uninsured motorist (UM) coverage may provide important benefits.
- Channeling of pedestrian traffic within a construction site
- Negligent drivers crashing into homes, storefronts or restaurants
- Car dealerships, parking lots & valet drivers
- Premises liability coverage, facility that creates visible obstruction
- Inadequate or malfunctioning lighting issues
- Vehicle ownership issues, rideshare, delivery, rental etc.
- Adequacy of sidewalks, crosswalks, and pedestrian zones
Mobile Pedestrian Accidents
Due to the inherent lack of protection on a bicycle or small recreational ride, many such accidents have tragic outcomes. Mobile pedestrian options are rapidly being introduced as a cost efficient alternative to driving. We routinely share the road with bicycles, scooters, mopeds and skateboards. Increasingly we see Segway, bike shares, e-scooters, and pedal party bikes, all of which create new dangers.
Golf carts are also popular on Florida’s secondary roads. Often seen as a nuisance around town, many drivers race past and swerve around a slower moving golf cart. With no active restraints, passengers are easily ejected and susceptible to dangerous rollovers.
