Hit-and-Run & Pedestrian Accident Attorneys Serving South Florida Since 1991

Pedestrian accidents happen every day. According to the CDC, in 2017, 5,977 pedestrians were killed in traffic crashes in the United States. That’s about one death every 88 minutes. Moreover, The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration found that fatal traffic accidents involving pedestrians are on the rise, with 6,283 pedestrian deaths in 2018—a 3% increase from 2017. It is important to note that these figures don’t even include traffic accidents involving bicycles or electric scooters.

Both drivers and pedestrians have certain duties per the law to avoid these tragedies.

Pedestrians have a duty to walk in a careful and safe manor within designated crossings and sidewalks. Operators of cars and other vehicles have a duty to be alert and cautious in an effort to look out for pedestrians. Both parties have a responsibility to be careful, pay attention, and look where they’re going.

Unfortunately, some drivers can be careless or impaired, which leads to accidents where pedestrians suffer severe injures or even death.

If you or a family member has been struck by a vehicle and was injured because of the negligent or reckless actions of someone else, Panter, Panter & Sampedro, can help you pursue compensation. Call us today at 305-662-6178 for a FREE CONSULTATION about your case.

  • No recovery, no fees.

    We believe that everyone, regardless of their financial status, should have access to sound legal counsel as they exercise their right to pursue justice and redress any harm or wrongdoing.

    At Panter, Panter & Sampedro, all our services are offered on a “contingency fee” basis, which means that any payment to the firm completely depends on whether our efforts result in a financial recovery for our client.

    Any lawyer’s fees for representing the client will be deducted from the final personal injury settlement in the client’s case or from the damages awarded after a favorable verdict, in the event that the client’s case goes to trial.

    In general, attorneys can receive up to one-third of the gross amount of a pre-suit settlement or 40% of the gross settlement recovery once a Defendant files an answer to a lawsuit. These rules are regulated by the Florida Bar, and the following summarizes our contingency fee policy:

    • Client enters into an agreement granting legal authority to the firm to represent the client in exchange for attorneys fees paid in the form of a percentage of the total recovery.
    • The firm assumes all up-front financial costs and risk associated with litigating the case. All of these expenses are paid by the firm, and are only repaid if a recovery is won.
    • The client pays no fees whatsoever, hourly or otherwise.
    • The firm’s contingency fee percentage varies based on the type of case, level of complexity, and the foreseeable resources required to litigate it properly.
    • Every case is unique, but the contingency fee percentage is always clearly agreed upon by both parties and documented in writing upon retaining our services.
  • We can. Call 305-662-6178 or submit a request for your FREE CONSULTATION to speak directly with one of our knowledgeable personal injury lawyers. We will review your case at no charge. To learn more about personal injury, please read below.

    Personal injury law, also known as tort law, is designed to protect you if you or your property is injured or harmed because of someone else’s act or failure to act. In a successful tort action, the one who caused the injury or harm compensates the one who suffered the losses.

    Every tort claim, regardless of its basis, whether intentional, negligence, or strict liability, has two basic issues—liability and damages. Was the defendant liable for the damages you sustained, and, if so, what is the nature and extent of your damages? If you can prove liability and damages, our system of justice will award you compensation for your loss.

    Personal injury cases can involve:

Personal Injury

Traffic Accidents

Medical Malpractice

Premises Liability

Product Liability

Catastrophic Injuries
