Florida Crosswalk and Sidewalk Accidents
Hold motorists responsible for your injuries
The roadways are meant to be shared by motorists and pedestrians. Crosswalks, sidewalks and guardrails are designed to protect pedestrians, but these safety measures are no match for careless drivers piloting two tons of speeding steel. Tragic accidents involving a negligent driver hitting a pedestrian often result in serious or fatal injuries.

Compensation for first responders who risk their lives to help others
Emergency medical professionals put their lives in danger as they assist victims of car accidents. Likewise, police officers are at risk during routine traffic stops that keep our roadways safe. Florida’s Move Over Law requires motorists to slow down and switch lanes when approaching enforcement vehicles stopped by the side of the road if it is safe to do so. Yet, emergency personnel are often struck by negligent drivers. If you have been injured while performing your duties, we can sue the culpable parties for compensation in addition to the workers compensation you are collecting from your employer.
