Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrian accidents personal injury actions occur where there is a car accident with a pedestrian. In these instances, the pedestrian is usually covered in some way by the insurance company of the car driver. A pedestrian is generally offered Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance by the car driver. This is not an offer of settlement by any means but is generally a good faith offer by the insurance company in order to avoid being sued by the pedestrian. It is a mechanism where many people believe that they have signed away their rights to sue under the PIP agreement with the driver's insurance company but is not the case.
