"Auto Accident & DUI Crash Injury Attorney"
There are nearly thirteen thousand pedestrian and bicyclists injured in Florida every single year. Most of these result in very severe injuries given how exposed these victims are to harm from motor vehicle operators. While persons who are walking, riding bicycles (or even riding horses) by law should enjoy the same right to use the roadway, often the carelessness of motor vehicle operators is what leads to severe injuries as well as over six hundred fatalities in Florida each year.
Auto insurers are required to cover these injuries and fatalities with PIP insurance. However, sometimes the pedestrian and bicyclist will have no PIP of their own. In such a case, the law requires the PIP of the motor vehicle that struck them to pay for the initial medical expenses. Thus, it is very important to hire a lawyer experienced both with accident cases and with insurance disputes.
Factors which commonly contribute to personal injury and death for pedestrians and bicyclists include:
Unless the police are very careful, pedestrian and bicyclist accidents can leave little evidence. It is important to secure eyewitness testimony and document the scene of the crash for use in court. Thorough investigation of all the facts documenting liability of the careless motor vehicle operator is critical. It is essential to obtain the representation of an experienced attorney immediately.
Immediate family members can also seek justice when carelessness results in wrongful death of a loved one. The wrongful death does not have to be the result of a crime. Such damages can include loss of support and services as well as the mental pain and anguish of losing the loved one. However, the time limits to pursue such claims are short (most wrongful death claims must be brought in 2 year or less depending on the circumstances).
