From busy parking lots to neighborhood streets, pedestrian accidents are a very real concern for anyone traveling on foot. Drunk, distracted, inexperienced and inattentive drivers all present dangerous risks for pedestrians; and far too often these drivers make careless mistakes -- leaving others to suffer the consequences.
At the Babiarz Law Firm, PA, we bring decades of experience to representing pedestrian accident victims in Central Florida. Our clients include walkers and runners who have suffered traumatic injuries, as well as families who are grieving the tragic loss of loved ones. With offices in The Villages®, we handle pedestrian cases in Ocala, Leesburg, Lady Lake, Wildwood, Summerfield and other communities throughout Lake, Marion and Sumter counties. We routinely work with out-of-state family members whose senior loved ones need caring and dedicated legal representation.
Each year, there are hundreds of pedestrian accidents in Central Florida involving motor vehicles. Driver negligence is a persistent factor, with most drivers saying they were not aware the pedestrian was there. Unfortunately, despite the number of pedestrians sharing the roads every day in our local communities, many drivers still do not exercise the necessary precautions to avoid putting law-abiding pedestrians at risk. If you or a loved one was hit by an automobile, we can help you calculate your losses (current and future) and fight to recover full and fair compensation.
Drunk driving and distracted driving are among the leading causes of pedestrian accidents. We all know the dangers of driving while intoxicated, and studies have shown that driving while distracted can be just as dangerous. Talking on the phone, texting, setting GPS directions and music playlists, using social media -- these are all dangerous distractions that are routinely to blame in pedestrian accidents.
If you or a loved one suffered traumatic injuries in a pedestrian accident and you believe a drunk or distracted driver may have been to blame, we can conduct an investigation to determine the factors involved and collect the evidence needed to assert your legal rights.
Commercial trucks present many unique risks for pedestrians. Truck drivers are often tired and lacking in proper training and experience, and visibility issues can put unsuspecting pedestrians in harm’s way. In most pedestrian truck accident cases, the trucking company or some other large corporation could have financial responsibility for the victims’ injuries. At the Babiarz Law Firm, PA, we have the commitment, skills and resources needed to take on these companies and recover the compensation our clients deserve.
