Were you hit by a vehicle while walking or crossing the street?
A Tampa pedestrian accident attorney knows that Florida pedestrians are in more danger of being hit by motor vehicles than nearly every other state. Between 2010 and 2019, nearly 6,000 pedestrians in Florida died in car accidents. Pedestrian accidents have only increased since 2019.
Florida has a large senior citizen population. The large amount of Florida pedestrian accident cases is likely linked to the large number of senior citizens in the state. Senior citizens are more likely to walk rather than drive. And senior citizens are more likely to be involved in a car accident in Florida.

Causes of Pedestrian Accidents
Pedestrians in Florida are injured in car accidents many different ways. They can happen when the pedestrian suddenly darts out into the road, not leaving the driver enough time to stop. They can happen at intersections when drivers fail to yield to the pedestrian or the pedestrian attempts to cross when they do not have the right of way.
Pedestrian accidents can also happen when a driver has their vision obscured, perhaps when passing another vehicle. And they quite often happen in parking lots when a vehicle travels in reverse without first seeing the pedestrian walking behind their vehicle.
Many drivers on Florida roadways are texting while driving or using their phones to peruse social media. As with all car accidents, distracted driving plays a big role in many pedestrian accidents in Florida today.
Common Injuries in Tampa Pedestrian Accidents
It may not seem obvious at first, but different types of personal injury accidents often elicit different types of injuries for the victims. Pedestrians are far more likely to suffer catastrophic injuries than the average automobile accident victim. Some of the most common injuries associated with pedestrian accidents are:
- Broken bones
- Ankle, knee, shoulder, wrist and elbow injuries to tendons and ligaments
- Traumatic Brain Injuries
- Injuries to the spine
The impacts suffered in pedestrian accidents are typically far greater due to the lack of protection a pedestrian has. This is why it is vital for pedestrian accident victims to seek treatment immediately. After seeking treatment, however, they should speak to a qualified, experienced personal injury attorney.
