Miami accidents are more prevalent than most other cities due to a variety of reasons. Accidents in Miami are statistically higher than every other city in Florida. Florida ranked the highest in 2017 for the number of pedestrian accidents, and Miami led the way in the breakdown within Florida.
Both drivers and pedestrians must follow the rules of the road and exercise reasonable care. In many cases, it may seem obvious who was negligent, but the courts look at numerous factors in applying the facts of the case to the elements of negligence. A person who negligently operates a vehicle may be required to pay damages for personal and property damage caused by that negligence.
What to do if you’re Involved in a Pedestrian Accident
People who may be legally responsible for your injuries might try to blame you for the accident, by claiming that your own negligence caused the accident. If you’ve been involved in a pedestrian accident, you should do the following:
- Call the police immediately
- Don’t leave the scene of the accident before help arrives
- Gather names and phone numbers of any witnesses
- Don’t make any statements to anyone, including drivers and insurers

Aaron was incredibly professional, he did not let me wait; always kept me informed of my case. I recommend him to everyone.
My situation was such that when I contacted Mr. Karger I needed immediate legal counsel. He was incredibly responsive prioritizing me as a client quickly diagnosing my situation, assessing all possible outcomes, and taking immediate steps to secure an optimal resolution. In the weeks Mr. Karger represented me he was very communicative sharing his strategy, actions taken, and updates on each milestone reached. I much appreciated being part of the process and it gave me insight into his qualifications and approach. First and foremost, Mr. Karger is very knowledgeable of real estate law which was important to my case. He established and maintained an aggressive cadence challenging all parties to be responsive and holding them accountable to tight timelines. Mr. Karger’s organizational skills, discipline and acumen I believe were the key differentiators and drivers to winning a successful settlement. I highly recommend him.
Mr. Karger handled an issue with my landlord promptly, professionally and cost-effectively. I got a swift resolution with an excellent result. I highly endorse him for real estate issues.
The service I received from Aaron Karger was incredible. Although it was a small case, he treated it like a priority and he put maximum effort into it. Emails were promptly returned and Aaron was always available. The outcome was better than I ever expected. I give him my highest recommendation. Aaron Karger is the best attorney I have ever worked with.
I contacted Aaron for a past landlord-tenant issue. I recently received a letter from the debt collector as a result of the issue. I was seeking advice on my next course of actions. Although Aaron does not specialize in dealing with debt collectors, he was still able to help me analyze the situation and offered his feedback. He was very helpful and thorough. Highly recommended.
Aaron provided invaluable advice in an eviction case. He knew the law cold – provided fast and efficient answers – gave Statute references to help and probably saved us from a huge loss in court. I will absolutely come back to hire him for follow up work in the future.
