MIAMI PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENT ATTORNEY

Steinger, Greene & Feiner is a personal injury law firm that has been representing injured victims since 1997. Our dedicated and experienced attorneys can help those hurt in a Miami pedestrian accident take legal action against the driver responsible for the crash.

The motorist’s insurance company will likely make a lowball offer to compensate the injured party or the family of someone who has been killed. It is at this time that a Miami pedestrian accident attorney should be consulted to ensure that the victim’s rights are upheld and a more accurate damage claim is pursued.

FLORIDA LAWS ON PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS

Florida laws aim to protect those who are involved in accidents to ensure that they don’t face financial ruin. As such, if a pedestrian is struck and injured or killed by a driver, the motorist who was responsible for the crash is also responsible for paying the costs and losses that result from the accident. Drivers purchase liability insurance to cover just such a tragic situation. The insurance company for the responsible driver will compensate the pedestrian who was hurt or will pay monetary damages to surviving family members in the event that a pedestrian is killed in an accident. The compensation the insurance company will pay the injured victim should cover all losses sustained as a direct result of the crash. This can include:

  • medical bills and costs arising from the injury
  • lost income/wages if the injury causes the victim to miss work or to be unable to hold a job
  • pain and suffering damages for the physical harm caused by the accident
  • emotional distress if the accident causes ptsd or other mental harm
  • wrongful death if the accident is a fatal

Injured pedestrians should pursue a claim against the driver who was responsible for the crash in order to ensure that the insurance company provides coverage for these economic and non-economic losses.

HOW TO OBTAIN PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENT COMPENSATION

Injured pedestrian accident victims or their surviving family members can pursue a claim for compensation by filing a personal injury or a wrongful death case. With the help of a Miami pedestrian accident lawyer, the injured victim will need to convince a judge or jury that the driver was negligent and that the pedestrian is entitled to monetary compensation for damages. In many situations, however, cases settle before going to court. If the insurance company offers a reasonable payout for losses, you can accept this payment in exchange for giving up the right to sue. A Miami pedestrian accident attorney can help to negotiate a settlement and can advise you on whether a proposed settlement offer is fair.
