Pedestrian Accidents Injury Lawyer

Florida is one of the top four states for pedestrian accidents. According to the National Highway Safety Administration, speeding is a major factor in many vehicle accidents and can be deadly in those involving pedestrians. Motorists are less likely to see a pedestrian while speeding, and if they do, they may not be able to avoid hitting them. Even at the low speed of 40 MPH, a pedestrian has an 85% chance of death when struck by a vehicle.

A pedestrian may be involved in an auto accident in several ways. These accidents can occur at a crosswalk intersection, a parking lot or sidewalk. Pedestrian accidents are particularly serious, because they involve a person being hit by a motor vehicle that may weigh in excess of 2,000 pounds. Often, pedestrians sustain catastrophic injuries and may lose their lives, even in traffic collisions that occur at low speeds.

What Our Happy Clients say

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Sanders was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Sanders to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Ligori & Sanders is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Sanders.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
