Deerfield Beach Pedestrian Accident Lawyer
Pedestrian Accident Lawyer in Deerfield Beach, FL
Pedestrian accidents could happen to anyone. These accidents can occur when the pedestrian has the right to walk, and they also can occur when the pedestrian does not have the right to walk. There is no right or wrong when it comes to an accident. In fact, that is why it is called an accident. Each party to an accident is likely to find themselves in the right. Pedestrian accidents, however, usually result in the pedestrian claiming to be the victim who has suffered wrongdoing.
A pedestrian accident can have physical results, leaving the victim temporarily or permanently impaired. If the victim suffers permanent impairment, their career can be affected. This would result in a long-term change for the victim. Additionally, victims are impacted by necessary medical care, schedule changes, and other disruptions caused by the pedestrian accident. Experiencing a pedestrian accident can be traumatic for the victim and their family members. If you have been involved in a pedestrian accident, you should contact a pedestrian accident lawyer to advocate on your behalf.
What Are the Traffic Crash Report Codes?
Insurance companies look to make settlements. The at-fault driver’s insurance company knows which codes it can file to reduce the amount of money owed to you. To give you a better understanding, the Traffic Crash report codes are listed below with their respective definitions:
- Fatal Injury: results in death within thirty days
- Incapacitating Injury: severed limbs and broken bones
- Non-Incapacitating Evident Injury: scrapes and bruises
- Injury: levels range in severity
- No Injury: no injury caused by the accident
- Non-Traffic Fatality: victim expired from a cause not related to the accident (heart attack, natural causes, suicide, etc.)
Each of these report codes will have a different impact on the case. A case may not be filed at the time of the accident; therefore, the case must be filed later. The report code that is filed is based on the reported injury.
What Were Florida 2020 Accident Numbers?
In 2020, there were over 2 million traffic violations and over 1.6 million total dispositions made in Florida. These numbers represent a decrease from previous years, which is most likely due to less travel because of the pandemic. The types of accidents can range from criminal to non-moving accidents. While the source of the accident may vary, victims still can sustain injuries from seemingly harmless incidents.
