The Harsh Reality of Pedestrian Accidents in Florida: Understanding the Downsides
Pedestrian accidents are a concerning issue nationwide, with over 5,300 pedestrians killed and 70,000 injured in 2015 alone, as reported by the NHTSA. Florida is particularly known for its high risk of pedestrian accidents.
Numerous factors contribute to the risks associated with pedestrian accidents, including the lack of safe pedestrian walkways and crosswalks, congestion, overpopulation, and distractions for both drivers and pedestrians, such as cellphones.
As an injured pedestrian, understanding your options for recovery is essential. Florida operates as a no-fault state, typically requiring accident victims to file a claim with their own insurer.
However, pedestrian accidents present unique circumstances, and you may have multiple avenues available to seek compensation:
PIP (Personal Injury Protection) Coverage: If you or someone in your household carries PIP insurance on an auto insurance policy, you can file a claim with that insurer, regardless of fault. PIP coverage pays for a portion of your medical bills, extending to injuries sustained in pedestrian accidents.
The At-Fault Driver: If the driver of the vehicle was responsible for the accident, you can file a claim and seek compensation under their insurance policy.
Liability Lawsuit: In cases where the at-fault party's insurance is insufficient to cover your losses, you have the option to file a civil lawsuit in court to pursue damages.
Determining liability and the appropriate insurer to file a claim with can be complex and challenging. The at-fault party's insurance company may try to shift blame onto you or minimize the severity of your injuries. It is essential to consult with an experienced attorney before taking any legal action or making statements to insurance adjusters.
