Pedestrians, and especially runners, face serious risks when walking or running across roadways and alongside traffic. If you or someone you love has been injured in a pedestrian accident due to the negligent and reckless actions of a motorist, you may be entitled to compensation. It is well recognized that although pedestrians and drivers are both charged with a duty to exercise ordinary care, the pedestrian or runner is often at a disadvantage in a automobile accident situation and at risk of grave injury.
As with most automobile accident cases, pedestrians and runners are entitled to no-fault benefits benefits. In simple terms, no-fault insurance laws require insurance companies to pay the medical bills of accident victims. To make a successful no-fault claim, however, specific procedures and time limitations must be strictly adhered too; which can easily become overwhelming when dealing with a serious injury.
Other important considerations in a pedestrian knockdown case include supplemental uninsurance/underinsurance motorist coverage, MVAIC disability benefits and property damage.
