In and around Miami area, pedestrian accidents can be some of the most damaging as a pedestrian has no protection from an oncoming vehicle.  When a person is struck by a vehicle, serious injury is likely and even death.  Under the Florida law, a pedestrian is owed certain rights when involved in an accident in which they were not at fault.


Weather in Miami, such as the "rainy" season is a particular hazardous time pedestrians.  Adverse weather conditions can make the roads more difficult to drive on and navigate and put pedestrians in danger,


Pedestrian laws and rights can be a complex subject and only a Florida personal injury lawyer can help you fully understand what you made eligible to as a result of an accident.  If you or a loved one was the victim of an accident while you were walking or running on the road, contact Auto Accident Attorney Miami-Leo Valdes to determine your rights,
