As a Deerfield Beach pedestrian accident attorney, Richard Ansara understands the risks are high.

And the Miami-Fort Lauderdale area has been named the fourth-deadliest area in the nation for pedestrian accidents.
These accidents often injure children or older adults. Though bicycle accidents are now more likely to injure middle-aged men, thanks to the rising popularity of cycling for fun and fitness. As government entities jump on the bandwagon, promoting bike rentals, trails and other riding opportunities, it’s equally important that officials also keep the safety or riders and the forefront of the efforts.
