Pedestrian and Runners’ Accidents

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 always at a disadvantage in a automobile accident, and at risk of grave injury.

As with most automobile accident cases, pedestrians and runners are entitled to no-fault benefits.  In simple terms, no-fault insurance laws require automobile insurance companies to pay the medical bills of runners and pedestrians who are struck by an automobile. 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.
