Tallahassee pedestrian struck by car late at night

A late night car accident in Tallahassee, Florida left a pedestrian injured and in the hospital, while police opened an investigation into the accident. The condition of the pedestrian is unknown, but given the nature of car-pedestrian accidents, it is very likely that she suffered some serious injuries. Few details have been available as the police continue to search for answer in this unfortunate wreck.

There will be many questions posed in the wake of this car accident, not the least of which will be "was the driver intoxicated in some way?" Given the late hour of the crash, it is possible the driver was drunk in some way. Drunk driving accidents differ from just a regular car accident because the driver is displaying extreme negligence and irresponsible behavior. Victims of such an accident can, and should, consider legal action.

There are other things to consider here pertaining to the driver's liability. The crash was at night -- so did the driver have his or her lights on? Did both of the headlights function properly, or were one of the bulbs out? Did the driver make an illegal traffic move, putting the pedestrian in unnecessary danger?

Ultimately, though, this story is about the pedestrian. His or her life likely will never be the same, and he or she will incur a mountain of medical debt attributed to an accident that may have been caused by a negligent driver. A personal injury lawsuit could earn the pedestrian the compensation he or she needs to help pay off these bills.
