In late August, a woman was trying to cross a busy area of State Road A1A when she was struck by a car and died. She was hit by a grey Chevrolet sedan on a Sunday night. This accident is tragic, and even more upsetting is the fact that it is the third pedestrian accident to take place in the same area of the highway over the past four months.
Orlando is the most dangerous city for pedestrians in the entire country. About 26 percent of all fatal traffic crashes involve pedestrians, and about six percent of pedestrian crashes result in death. While in many cases pedestrian accidents are caused by pedestrians crossing mid-block, the blame is mostly on the driver. In fact, 51 percent of all pedestrian crashes in 2013 and 2014 involved a driver who failed to yield when required to by law.
This means that pedestrian accident victims have rights, and are entitled to compensation for their injuries and losses. Personal injury attorney James Cunningham has been working in Orlando for more than 30 years, helping hundreds of pedestrian accident victims fight back against drivers and insurance companies.
If you or a loved one has been involved in a pedestrian accident in Orlando, you could be entitled to compensation for medical bills and treatment, medication, recovery time, physical therapy, psychological trauma, lost wages, loss of spousal support, and more.
Since 1977, Attorney Cunningham has worked to make sure each of his clients and their families gain the compensation deserved after an accident. No matter how long your recovery time, you should not have to bear the financial burden.

Nothing can take away the pain of losing a loved one, but not having to worry about financial obligations and mounting costs can ease stress during a painful time.
