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.
Pedestrian accidents are rife with great injury possibility due to the very nature of the accident, a 3 ton metal vehicle traveling at great rates of speed into a person walking on the sidewalk or across the street. People that are hit by cars are often very lucky to survive but often suffer broken bones, torn muscles, deep puncture wounds, traumatic brain injuries, and more. These car accidents are often some of the worst personal injury cases in terms of injuries are concerned. However, rest assured that your case will be handled with the utmost personal care and every effort will be made to make sure that you are compensated for the devastating, life altering injuries that you have sustained.
