Key West Pedestrian Accident Attorneys
In the United States and average of 1000 innocent pedestrians are injured every day by negligent drivers of motor vehicles. Injuries sustained included broken bones, paralysis, brain injuries, coma and death. Negligent and unsafe drivers must be responsible for injuries that are inflicted on others.
Leesfield Scolaro, Key West pedestrian accident attorneys, have been representing the victims of negligence for years. Our team of dedicated lawyers represents persons who have suffered serious injury or wrongful death, economic loss, personal loss and future damages due to negligence, including serious automobile accidents, motorcycle accidents, nursing home abuse, defective equipment accidents, plane crash accidents, boating accidents, cruise ship accidents, construction accidents, slip and fall accidents and medical negligence, including harmful drugs.
Below are some findings regarding 2004 pedestrian accidents:
- A pedestrian was injured in a traffic-related accident every 5 minutes.
- Nearly 5,900 pedestrians were killed in traffic-related accidents.
- Males accounted for two-thirds of all pedestrian injuries.
Unfortunately children account for most pedestrians injured by a motor vehicle. In fact, children under the age of four account for nearly 40 percent of pedestrian-injury related deaths. If you have children, now is the time to discuss pedestrian safety. Teach children to cross at a crosswalk or corner whenever possible and to look both ways and continue looking when they cross. Make sure you child wears reflective clothing or carries a flashlight when walking at night, especially on Halloween, a day that notoriously has more pedestrian accidents than any other day of the year.
