Question:

What benefits are available for a pedestrian accident?

Answer:

In the state of Florida, there are many benefits that are available to you as compensation if you’re hit as a pedestrian. If you own a car, then your injuries still arise out of the use of another motor vehicle because you’ve been hit by one. You have your personal injury protection benefits coverage that’s available to you, and you can seek treatment for your medical injuries under that coverage.Pedestrian Accident BenefitsIf you don’t own a motor vehicle and you don’t have your own auto insurance coverage, you may also be able to collect and seek treatment under the at-fault driver’s insurance coverage, their PIP coverage, and you may also have a resident relative – you have to be a blood relative or have a legal relationship to that relative – who owns a car, and you may be entitled to get their PIP benefits as well. The main thing you have to do is seek an injury attorney who can investigate all of those avenues for you so that your injuries are compensated and that your medical providers are able to get paid for the treatment that they render to you.
