Florida Pedestrian Injuries – Getting Your Medical Bills Paid

Posted by Guy DiMartino | Dec 10, 2012 | 0 Comments

Florida trial lawyer and chiropractic physician, Guy S. DiMartino, discusses Florida pedestrian injuries and getting your medical bills paid after an accident.

A Florida pedestrian can be hit by a car or truck and injured while walking in a parking lot, parking garage, shopping center or crossing the street.  If you are a pedestrian that has been hit and injured by a car or truck you should be able to receive up to $10,000 in personal injury protection benefits to pay for your medical bills and/or lost wages.   Florida is a no-fault state and pedestrians can qualify for PIP benefits in one of three ways:

  • If you have a Florida automobile insurance policy.
  • If you do not own a car in Florida but you live in a household where a relative owns a car and has insurance on the car.
  • Through the insurance company of the driver that hit you if you do not own a car in Florida and do not live with a relative that owns a car in Florida.

Qualifying a Florida pedestrian who has been injured in a motor vehicle accident can be confusing and many times requires the assistance of an experienced personal injury lawyer.

Florida's Personal Injury Protection law is changing in January 2013, if you have any questions about your Florida pedestrian injury claim, give me a call at (352) 267-9168 or fill out the internet consultation form on the right hand side of the screen.
