Driver arrested for hit-and-run accident involving pedestrian

Although most of the time pedestrians are able to safely share the areas near roadways with vehicles, Florida is still the number one state for most pedestrian deaths. A tragic example occurred in an accident recently in Miami.

According to the reports, a driver was recently arrested for hitting and killing a pedestrian in Miami. The accident occurred at NW 173 Drive and 47th Avenue when a man was attempting to cross the street. A driver hit him and then drove away without stopping. A tip received by the Miami-Dade police led them to the suspect, who has now been charged in the death of the pedestrian.

Losing a loved one in a tragic accident is something no family should have to go through. Unfortunately, these situations play out again and again in South Florida. If a family is facing a situation in which their loved one died due to no fault of their own, they may want to get more information about personal injury legal options. Doing so can help the family review the circumstances surrounding the accident and get the information they need as to what happened. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, funeral expenses and other damages.

Pedestrian accidents continue to occur in Florida. Far too many people are dying because drivers are not paying attention when they are behind the wheel. It is important for families left behind to understand that they may have the legal right to hold negligent drivers responsible for their mistake.
