Florida Pedestrian Accident Attorneys
Tirelessly Seeking Justice on Your Behalf
Did you know that 6,283 pedestrians were killed as a result of a traffic accident in 2018? Do you know that 26% of those fatalities happened between the hours of 6 p.m. and 9 p.m.? It’s true! According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 2018 was the deadliest year since 1990 for pedestrians, and most of those victims were hit by a distracted or drunk driver.
If you leave your home on foot at any point during the day, you are a pedestrian. Even at The Dellutri Law Group, PA, some of our employees have to walk across the street to enter our building. Every day, we take that chance. And, when we arrive at 7:45 in the morning, ready to start our work day at 8, we aren’t considering what could happen if a distracted driver is speeding down our street! Unfortunately, we know all too well the consequences of what happens with a distracted driver takes their eyes off the road to look down at a cell phone, reach around the backseat, or change the radio station.
At The Dellutri Law Group, PA, we believe in your safety, and we want to protect your rights. Once you hire our team, you can be sure that the entire firm has your back, as we are all united in one common cause: obtaining justice for our clients. If you are ready to speak to a Florida pedestrian accident attorney who is ready to fight for you, give us a call today.
Pedestrian Accidents in Our Community
“Pedestrian dies after being struck by a vehicle”
“Woman struck and killed while attempting to cross Colonial Boulevard in Fort Myers”
“Pedestrian seriously injured in hit and run Wednesday”
“Third pedestrian struck by car in Lee County in past 24 hours dies later at hospital”
As much as we hate to admit it, these are all real news headlines in the span of just one month in a single Florida town. There are no words for this other than that it is absolutely heartbreaking. Recently, there were even two very high-profile accidents involving the deaths of children who were waiting/walking to their bus stops. Our children live here too. We want to work with you to protect them and their classmates.

Why are pedestrian accidents so common in our community? Some of the common causes of these disastrous and often-fatal incidents include:
- Distracted driving, including texting or using a cell phone while driving
- Driving under the influence of drugs/alcohol
- Failing to stop at red lights or stop signs
- Failing to check for pedestrians before making right- or left-hand turns
- Speeding and other forms of reckless driving
- Fatigued driving/driving while tired
- Failing to follow all traffic rules and laws
As a pedestrian, it’s important that you know and obey all rules of the road in order to ensure you stay safe. Never cross on a red light or walk along major highways or roads where pedestrians are prohibited. Attempting to run across a busy street—even when it seems like no cars are coming or when cars are far away—can be incredibly dangerous.
All the same, even when you are being as cautious as possible, you can’t always predict or stop an accident from happening. If you were hit by a motorist, you are likely facing serious or even life-altering injuries. You shouldn’t have to deal with the resulting medical bills, lost wages from time you’re forced to take off work, and immense pain and suffering all on your own.
