Have you recently been involved in a pedestrian accident? Here’s what you need to know.Florida No-Fault and Pedestrian Accidents
Under Florida statute 627.7407 (the ‘No-Fault’ law) any individual operating a motor vehicle is required to purchase a $10,000 personal injury protection insurance policy (PIP).
When a pedestrian is hit by someone’s vehicle, the driver’s PIP policy will go in to affect to help cover the medical expenses of the injured party.
Sadly, however, the $10,000 included in this policy is rarely enough to cover all the pedestrian’s bills. When that’s the case, if they are insured, they have the right to request coverage from their own PIP policy.
