A pedestrian was injured in a Clearwater accident on Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard. The eastbound lanes were closed after the accident happened, and have been reopened since.
The accident happened east of Park Place Boulevard, and the pedestrian was taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Tampa.
There were no specific details about the injury of the pedestrian.
The police are still investigating the crash.
Pedestrian accidents frequently happen in Tampa, Florida. The high number of vehicles on the roads leads to frequent and often pedestrian accidents.
The pedestrians have barely any protection on the road, so when they are hit by a motor vehicle, they often end up with severe injuries. Death outcomes are not uncommon, as well.
If you are a victim in a pedestrian accident, you could file a lawsuit against the liable driver and seek compensation claim for your injuries.
Many pedestrians are not well informed about the steps they should take after an accident. Some are not aware of their legal rights that follow a pedestrian accident.
The best way to get a compensation claim if you were injured in a pedestrian accident is to hire a pedestrian attorney.
Insurance companies have an excellent team of attorneys, and so should you. Their main goal is to offer you less money than you deserve.
Don’t let time pass by and consult with an attorney as soon as possible (the best time is right after the accident). Your lawyer will help you file a claim and help protect your rights after an accident.
Not everyone knows how to file a claim, which is another reason why you should get help from a pedestrian attorney.
