Walking around in St. Pete? You are at high risk for being hit by a car, data shows. Not only is Florida the most dangerous state in the U.S. for pedestrians (having the highest rate of pedestrian fatalities in the nation), but St. Petersburg is also one of the most dangerous cities. In 2019 alone, 14 walkers were killed on St. Petersburg streets. Most of the deaths were caused by negligent drivers who did not obey the rules of the road. After the pandemic, and because of the growth of St. Pete – the addition of the pier, the expansion of residences, etc. – more people are going to be walking, driving, and biking in this bustling city. The city is working to keep pedestrians safer, but unfortunately, the rate of pedestrian injuries and fatalities still remains high.
Being injured as a pedestrian can change your life forever. If you or someone you love has been injured in a pedestrian accident, you deserve both a monetary settlement and for the responsible party to be held accountable. Florida law allows you to make a claim for the cost of your injuries and for the pain you have endured; however, insurance companies are experts at avoiding paying out claims, because doing so protects their financial interests. That’s why you need an aggressive accident attorney on your side! The Florida Law Group’s St. Petersburg pedestrian accident injury lawyers will advocate for the full amount that your injuries are worth. Call our St. Pete office today to book a FREE consultation and discuss your legal options!
Our lawyers have recovered over $1 billion dollars for injured pedestrians and other accident victims. Let our experience give you an advantage in negotiations!
Pedestrians are completely unprotected in any collision with another vehicle, and resulting injuries will likely be catastrophic – and expensive. If you survive the accident, you may have to deal with costs related to ambulatory or air transport, emergency room care, imaging tests like CT scans and MRIs and X-rays, surgery or multiple surgeries, splints and casts, overnight or multi-day or even multi-week hospital stays, physical therapy, chiropractic care, medications, medical devices like boots or crutches, copays, deductibles, and more. You may be unable to work for weeks or months, and may miss out on wages you would otherwise have earned if not for the accident. In some tragic cases, injuries are permanent or leave pedestrians permanently disasbled; if this is the case for you, you may require lifelong treatment, and you may be unable to participate in your favorite activities or work ever again.
The expenses of your accident, when all is said and done, can add up to be hundreds of thousands of dollars. You should theoretically be able to rely on your insurance company or the other person’s insurance company to cover these costs – after all, that’s what insurance companies are supposed to do! – but many injured pedestrians in Florida are surprised to find that insurance companies won’t easily give them a fair settlement. Trying to fight with them and recover from your injuries at the same time can be frustrating and exhausting, and you don’t have any reason for them to honor their agreement with you unless you have an attorney! Our St. Petersburg pedestrian accident injury lawyers have negotiated with and fought insurance companies since 1984. We know the tactics they use and we are not intimidated by even the largest carriers; we aren’t afraid of going to trial, if that’s what it comes to. Our mission is to get you the largest settlement possible, no matter what it takes.
Unlike other law groups, we take the time to listen to your story, answer your questions, explain your options, give your case personalized attention, and generally treat you like we would want our family members to be treated if they found themselves in a similar situation. Our lawyers truly care about making a positive impact on your life, so we will always go the extra mile to help you recover, whether that means connecting you with medical care or counseling, or helping you find funding so you can pay your bills while your case is pending. You can trust us to relentlessly pursue maximum compensation for your injuries!

About The Florida Law Group’s St. Petersburg Presence
The Florida Law Group opened our St. Petersburg office in early 2021, and we are pleased to begin offering representation to injured pedestrian accident victims! St. Petersburg is the 5th most populated city in the state, according to 2020 census data – it’s a colorful, fun, bustling city, a residential area as well as a tourist destination, a college town, a beach town, a center for the arts, and more. It is densely populated, with many one-way streets and crosswalks, which means that pedestrian accidents here are a tragic but frequent occurrence. The city is located on the edge of the Pinellas Peninsula, making it harder for accident victims to receive the legal assistance they want without traveling long distances. Our St. Petersburg pedestrian accident injury lawyers firmly believe that every victim deserves access to award-winning representation, so we moved to St. Pete to offer more people our legal assistance! Recovering damages in pedestrian accident injury cases can be time sensitive, as there is a statute of limitations past which a settlement cannot be sought.
