A pedestrian accident can cause you to suffer severe injuries. Because you were not protected from the car that hit you, you may require extensive treatment. On top of this, you’ll have to pay medical bills and spend time away from your job to recover. The team at GED Lawyers knows how physically, emotionally, and financially drained you may feel. We’re here to help you.
A Florida pedestrian accident lawyer from GED Lawyers can handle your legal case so you can pursue the compensation you deserve. We’re prepared to walk you through the process of filing a lawsuit or insurance claim.
Our Florida Pedestrian Accident Lawyer Can Seek Compensation for You
Getting hit by a car can leave you with life-threatening injuries that can impact you for the foreseeable future. You may need long-term care, physical therapy, and medical equipment to adapt to and recover from your injuries.
Of course, this kind of treatment will not be cheap. You could incur serious financial losses that at the very least threaten to break the bank. Compensation can cover your financial losses and hold the negligent party accountable for your injuries.
A personal injury lawyer from our firm can pursue economic and non-economic damages on your behalf. Your economic damages could include:
- All your medical care costs
- Property damage
- Lost income
- Reduced earning capacity
Meanwhile, your non-economic, or intangible losses may include:
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Lost enjoyment of life
- Scarring and disfigurement
The value of your case will vary depending on which damages apply to you. We have secured multi-million-dollar settlements for victims of pedestrian accidents. We can help you, too.

Our Florida Pedestrian Accident Lawyer Offers Accessible Legal Guidance
You don’t have to worry about the cost of hiring a personal injury lawyer from our firm because we work on a contingency-fee basis. You do not pay us anything out of your own pocket, and we do not charge any upfront fees or hourly retainers. You don’t pay us unless and until we win your case. Then, we accept a percentage of the compensation we secure for you as payment.
We can explain how payment works in more detail when you hire GED Lawyers for your case. In addition, we offer free consultations so you can talk to us about your case and ask us questions about it at zero cost.
Don’t Miss the Deadline To File a Lawsuit After Your Pedestrian Accident
We encourage you to hire a lawyer right away after your pedestrian accident. Florida typically only gives you two years to file a personal injury lawsuit, according to Florida Statutes § 95.11. If you fail to file your lawsuit on time, you might not have any legal options to recover compensation.
Our law firm will work to meet the statute of limitations in your case so you can hold the liable party accountable in court. When you bring your case to us right from the beginning, we have time to collect evidence, speak to witnesses, and fill out all the necessary paperwork.
