Pedestrian Accident Lawyer Tampa Florida
Each year tens of thousands of pedestrians are either injured or killed in the United States due to the negligence of others. Many drivers are distracted by using their cell phones, or are in a hurry to get somewhere. It is sad and unfortunate that the fast-paced life that many live nowadays can contribute to the increase possibilities of being in a Pedestrian Accident. Attorney Dan Zohar has represented pedestrians over the years who were injured while trying to cross a street, or by simply standing on the side of the roadway waiting for traffic to clear.
Recognizing their potential financial exposure, insurance companies often try to shift the blame to the innocent pedestrian. For example, they will try to argue that the pedestrian did not cross the street at a designated crosswalk, or that the pedestrian was standing too close to the roadway when he or she was hit. These [insurance] companies realize that if they can shift even a portion of the blame to the innocent pedestrian, they will be saving a lot of money. After all, the insurance companies are trying to minimize the amount of money that they payout on cases.
