Pedestrian Accidents

Injured as a Pedestrian?

Experienced Car Accident Attorneys in St. Petersburg

Some of the most traumatic accidents involving motor vehicles occur when a walker, jogger or other pedestrian is struck by a car, truck or other vehicle. Pedestrians lack any protection from the colliding vehicle and often have little or no warning of the imminent crash. Pedestrian accidents are tragedies that too often result in catastrophic injury or death.

Our attorneys at Karikas & Kasaris, P.A. have true compassion and concern for each client - whether we are representing an individual who was injured in a pedestrian accident or the family mourning the loss of a loved one who died in a fatal crosswalk accident.
