The city of Sunrise began as a small golfing community in southwestern Broward County. It remade itself in the 1990s and today is a fast-growing city of nearly 90,000.
At The Ansara Law Firm, we fight for the rights of the injured in Sunrise and throughout the area, including Plantation, Lauderhill, Lauderdale Lakes, Weston and Oakland Park. Area draws include the NHL’s Florida Panthers, the Sawgrass Mill Mall, which is the nation’s fourth largest, as well as Sawgrass International Corporate Park, the largest corporate park in South Florida.
Sunrise pedestrian accident attorneys understand the risks pedestrians face each day in Broward County. The Miami-Fort Lauderdale area has been named among the most dangerous metro areas in the nation when it comes to pedestrian accidents. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles reports more than 100 people are killed each year and 3,500 seriously injured in bicycle and pedestrian accidents in Broward County.
Nationwide, the number of pedestrian and bicycle accidents remains a concern. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports more than 600 cyclists are killed in accidents each year and more than 50,000 are injured. These accidents are considered a primary threat as infill efforts see a return of residents to the city and bicycling, walking and jogging for fun and fitness continue to grow in popularity.
Our Sunrise bicycle accident attorneys know it’s not just other drivers who have an obligation to cyclist safety, but also the local governments who are responsible for promoting the expansion of the cycling and pedestrian infrastructure and maintaining it in a safe manner. Both the Metro Bike and Ride and the Broward Bike Sharing Plan are popular with cyclists and add hundreds of bicycles to city streets each day.

Lawsuits involving child injury in Sunrise are often complex matters. In many cases an injury, whether physical or emotional, may not be readily apparent. In other cases, symptoms may fail to present themselves until months or even years after an accident. And in still other cases recovery can be complicated by growth or by emerging emotional issues stemming from the accident.
Unfortunately, children are at very high risk for a wide variety of serious accidents, including:
- Auto Accidents
- Bicycle and Pedestrian Accidents
- Fall Injuries
- Defective Product Accidents
- Dog Bites
- Swimming Pool Accidents
- Accidents on School Property
Defective product injuries account for thousands of serious and fatal injuries among children each year, according to the Consumer Safety Product Commission. Each year, hundreds of products are recalled because of the risk of a variety of injuries, including suffocation or strangulation risks, amputation risks and the risk of fire, lacerations or poisoning.
