Picture it: you are out for a walk in downtown Miami. The bright sun is out and the city is bustling with energy. Suddenly, a car blows through a stop light and collides into you as you are crossing the street. This tragic story is far too common. Over 7000 pedestrians are injured in Florida each year due to the negligence of drivers.

MOST COMMON PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS IN MIAMI

There are multiple ways a pedestrian can be injured on the streets of South Florida. If you have been involved in any of the scenarios below, contact a Miami pedestrian accident lawyer right away.

  • Hit while crossing at a crosswalk
  • Hit on sidewalk by a driver
  • Hit by a bicyclist or motorcyclist
  • Hit while crossing the street (not at a crosswalk)

The nature of the accident will determine what type of compensation you will be eligible for. To discuss the finer points of your accident and whether or not you have a case, speak with a pedestrian injury attorney at Neufeld, Kleinberg & Pinkiert, PA.

A MIAMI PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENT LAWYER WILL SEEK COMPENSATION ON YOUR BEHALF

Any driver who hits a pedestrian in Miami is obligated by law to pay for any injury costs or losses that the accident directly causes. To cover these costs, drivers have what is called personal injury protection insurance. In the event that a driver hits a pedestrian, their insurance is required to compensate the pedestrian for any monetary losses or, in the event that the pedestrian is killed, the family members.

Insurance companies must pay all of the following that apply:

  • Medical bills or any medical costs related to the accident
  • Any lost wages or income should you be unable to work
  • Damages related to pain or suffering in relation to the accident
  • Emotional distress or trauma as a result of the accident
  • Wrongful death

If you or a loved one was injured in a pedestrian accident, it is crucial that you contact an experienced personal injury attorney to learn more about your options for monetary recovery. Often, you can receive compensation for lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering. We will guide you through the car accident legal process every step of the way.

If you are injured in a pedestrian accident, do not think that you must pay for your own medical bills. You deserve to be fairly compensated for the pain and suffering you are enduring.

GETTING COMPENSATION AFTER A MIAMI PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENT

When you are injured in a pedestrian accident in Florida, your medical insurance will first cover the costs of your injuries. Your medical insurance will then go to collect compensation from the driver’s car insurance company. If you are injured while you are working, you may also file for worker’s compensation.

Even though you were not driving, you can file a claim with your own car insurance company as well, assuming you do have insurance. It does not matter that you were not driving a car at the time of the accident.

As you can see, there are plenty of different avenues for compensation. It is not always easy to navigate how to go about getting compensation, which is why it is so important that you speak with a knowledgeable lawyer. The Miami pedestrian accident lawyers at Neufeld, Kleinberg & Pinkiert, PA, can help you decide what is the best way to pursue your compensation and walk you through it every step of the way.

MIAMI PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENT CLAIM AGAINST UNINSURED MOTORISTS

So what can you do if the person who hit you has no insurance at the time of the accident? This can often be a pedestrian’s worst nightmare, but you do have an option.

In many cases, you can go after the driver and sue for any other assets they may have. If the driver owns the car, a home, or any other major assets, they may be ordered by the courts to sell these assets in order to pay for your medical bills. However, if the driver has no insurance and no assets to speak of, then you may be out of luck.

When you have been injured in a pedestrian accident, the last thing on your mind might be paying for your expenses. With all that you have to do, you need someone to fight for your rights to be compensated. Our Miami pedestrian accident lawyers have over 90 years of combined experience and will examine every aspect of your case to ensure that you get the money you deserve.
