Jacksonville Pedestrian Accident Lawyers
When walking down a sidewalk, it is very easy to ignore the extreme danger that could be presented by a reckless or negligent driver. Most sidewalks place pedestrians less than a few feet away from speeding cars, and if a driver is, for example, sending a text message, eating lunch, or simply not paying attention, a pedestrian could quickly find themselves directly in the path of a moving vehicle.

Liability in Pedestrian Accidents
Unfortunately, many medical insurance companies will not cover injuries related to pedestrian accidents on the grounds that they are considered “automobile accidents,” which are covered by automobile insurance policies. If you are unable to determine the identity of the driver, you may have an extremely difficult time being reimbursed for your damages. Thus, you should immediately call a police officer to the scene, who can not only positively identify the driver, but also offer his or her testimony in court. Additionally, contacting a Jacksonville pedestrian accident attorney will greatly aid your case.
