Pedestrian & Bike Accidents
Tampa Pedestrian Accident Attorney
Every year over a hundred thousand people walkin or riding bicycles are injured or killed by cars and trucks across the country. Tragically, more than a third of the victims are young children and teens. Many victims and their families do not recover the fair compensation they deserve thanks to aggressive insurance companies.

In an auto-walker collision, driver negligence is the primary cause of injury or death to the walkers, runners and others on foot. When their attention is on cell phone calls, radios and CD players, a passenger or other distraction, we help clients hold them liable of injury when they fail to:
- Obey traffic lights or stop signs
- Understand green lights are for walkers too
- Stop at crosswalks
- Look before making right turns
- Yield right of way to pedestrians
- Follow posted speed limits in residential areas
In Florida, negligent auto drivers that cause pedestrian and bicycle accidents may be responsible for medical bills regardless of who was at fault. It is always important to speak with an attorney after you’ve been hit by a car or other vehicle to ensure you get the compensation you are entitled to receive.
From Jacksonville to Sarasota, Florida, our experienced lawyers understand that bicyclists have the same rights as cars on the road. We handle claims involving:
