Pedestrian Accidents

Did you know that your automobile insurance may protect you if you are struck by a car while walking or running? If you have the right kind of coverage (Personal Injury Protection “PIP” and/or Uninsured Motorist “UIM”), you may be able to use your own insurance to pay your medical bills while you recover from your bike accident. You may also be able to use your own insurance to compensate you for your injuries if the car that hit you was uninsured or did not have enough insurance.

At Nelson Boyd, we understand pedestrian injuries because we are fortunate to live in one of the most walkable cities in the country and we have handled numerous pedestrian cases. In addition, Deborah Nelson is a current member of the PRO Club Triathlon Team and a former member of the Team in Training marathon team and raised money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society which put her on the roads where motorists do not always share the roads as they should. She knows and understands the special concerns and risks that runners face.

We know walking and running are great forms of exercise and transportation, but that they also put you at risk for injury when other people fail to use caution. More importantly, we know that pedestrian accidents require a special legal approach. Let us put our years of experience to work for you to obtain the fair and full compensation that you deserve.
