What should I do if I am injured as a pedestrian in Florida?
If you’re injured as a pedestrian in Florida, the first thing you should do is try to find out the identity of the driver of the car that hit you and the owner of the car that hit you. The second thing that you need to do is make sure you get medical treatment for your injuries. Also, you need to report this accident to your car insurance company because you have PIP benefits, which are no-fault benefits that will help you with your medical bills. Finally, I would advise that you contact a qualified attorney to discuss the facts and circumstances of your case to make sure that you get all the benefits that you can from the at-fault party’s insurance as well as your own.
