Miller & Jacobs – Pedestrian Accident Attorneys

When a pedestrian is hit by a car, it is physically and emotionally traumatic. The injuries may be so severe that the victim cannot say what happened. If you, or a loved one, suffered serious injury in a pedestrian accident, you will need experienced representation to recover compensation.

Miller & Jacobs is a boutique law firm with extensive experience with motor vehicle accidents, including pedestrians struck by cars. With offices in Orlando and Pompano Beach, we welcome personal injury and wrongful death cases throughout Central Florida and South Florida.

We Know Your Rights As A Pedestrian. Our skilled attorneys know how to investigate pedestrian accidents and counter the defense arguments that our client was at fault. Contact us immediately for a free consultation.

If you or someone you love has been injured in a pedestrian accident, contact Miller & Jacobs as soon as possible. The steps you take immediately following your accident are crucial and can affect your recovery down the line. Our attorneys can guide you through the legal process, and ensure that your rights and best legal options are preserved.

Under Florida law, negligent behavior on the part of the injured party can reduce or even negate compensation. The defense will try to portray that the victim was at fault — jaywalking, intoxicated, crossed against the light, darted into traffic, etc.

We work very hard to show that the motorist was solely at fault or more negligent:

Failed to yield the right of way

Speeding or aggressive driving

Talking or texting on a cellphone

Driving drunk Failed to stop at a traffic light or stop sign

Backing up without looking

We have represented pedestrians hit by cars in crosswalks, unmarked intersections, parking lots, roadway shoulders and other locations. The bottom line is that drivers have a duty to obey traffic laws and proceed cautiously, especially in a downtown or residential area with lots of foot traffic.

We know that pedestrian accidents commonly result in broken bones, head injury, internal injuries and other grave harm. We have the resources and the resolve to go all the way to a jury to get justice for clients. We are committed to full compensation for medical care, lost income, pain and suffering, permanent disability and other damages.
