PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS – FORT LAUDERDALE / MIAMI
Drivers in any vehicle are expected to observe a number of safety rules and regulations while they are operating their vehicles. They are also expected to conduct themselves with a reasonable amount of care for their environments while doing so. All motorists have these obligations to protect themselves and all other persons on the road, including pedestrians.
Unfortunately, sometimes a driver can be unreasonably reckless, disregard the rules or fail to follow basic safety guidelines. A pedestrian can suffer severely if a driver’s negligent choices or distracted actions lead to an accident. In fact, automobile collisions can cause serious harm or death to those walking on or near streets and surrounding sidewalks.
