Man Struck and Critically Injured in Orlando Pedestrian Accident

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on April 11, 2011

Recently, a car struck and critically injured a 28-year-old Pennsylvania man while he was crossing Universal Boulevard in Orlando. Accident investigators say the man was just a few hundred feet from the entrance to Universal Orlando when he attempted to cross from west to east across the boulevard. The accident occurred near the intersection with Major Boulevard around 2:10 a.m. A Chrysler sedan driven by a 25-year-old area woman struck and critically injured the victim. Orlando Police spokeswoman Sergeant Barb Jones said the victim was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center where he is being treated for his injuries.

Florida leads the nation each year in pedestrian accidents, and few know this better than Orlando personal injury lawyer James O. Cunningham does. Orlando is one of the most dangerous areas in the state for pedestrian accidents. Our area is known for heavy traffic and attracting many visitors from all over the world. Mr. Cunningham has been helping injured pedestrians since 1977 and sees first-hand the injuries that vehicles of all kinds can inflict on pedestrians. Pedestrians are simply no match for a vehicle weighing thousands of pounds, and victims often suffer devastating injuries such as these:

•    Traumatic brain injuries
•    Ruptured internal organs
•    Compound bones fractures
•    Back injuries
•    Paraplegia
•    Quadriplegia
•    Other serious injuries that require very expensive medial treatment

In many cases, pedestrians are simply in the wrong place at the wrong time when struck by negligent drivers who talk and text on cell phones, drive under the influence of alcohol and drugs, run stoplights and stop signs and engage in other reckless, negligent behavior.
