Below are some of my settlements where a pedestrian was hit by a vehicle. You can also learn more about how much your particular injury may be worth in Florida.
Pedestrian Gets $325,000 after Car Hits Him in Coconut Grove
The pedestrian’s lower leg bone (tibia) was fractured from the crash.
Philadelphia Insurance Company insured the driver for up to $100,000.
My client purchased ACE Insurance paid its $100,000 uninsured motorist (UM) liability coverage.
The driver was working for US Customs at the time of this crash.
We tried to settle the case with the United States.
They did not make an offer even after they had supporting documentation. We gave them about six (6) months to make an offer.
We sued the United States. They paid us $125,000 in litigation. The total settlement was for $325,000. This claim was able to get a bigger settlement because he purchased uninsured motorist insurance.
Pedestrian Gets $110,000 Settlement for Facial Fracture in Car Crash
A driver of a car hit my client, a pedestrian. It happened in Homestead, Miami-Dade County, Florida.
My client had an orbital fracture, which is a fracture of the bone next to the eye. She had a plate inserted to fix this fracture.
My client was walking in the crosswalk. The car was approaching a green signal.
The accident diagram is below.
The car that hit my client was insured with Imperial Fire & Casualty Insurance Company. The car was insured for up to $10,000 in bodily injury (“BI”) liability coverage.
Imperial Fire & Casualty paid us the $10,000 BI liability coverage. Imperial is a National General Company.
Progressive was my client’s husband’s uninsured motorist (UM) liability insurer.
Progressive paid us $100,000. The total settlement for this case was $110,000.
Pedestrian Hit By Car Gets $70,000 from USAA
See my case where a pedestrian who was hit by a car settled with USAA for $70,000. I claimed that the car accident caused her 4 bulging discs, a broken leg (tibial plateau fracture).
She also suffered a sacrum fracture.
Here is MRI image of her herniated discs in her neck.
$65,000 Settlement for Pedestrian’s Broken Leg After Car Hits Him
A man who lived in California was on vacation in Miami Beach. While he was walking in a crosswalk, a car hit him.
At the hospital, a doctor diagnosed him with a broken lower leg bone (fibula fracture). A photo of his leg is above.
You can see the fibula bone in the image above. He didn’t have surgery. GEICO insured the careless driver.
The pedestrian hired me to represent him. GEICO paid $65,000 to settle his personal injury case.
Medicare, AARP (United Healthcare), Farmers Insurance (med pay) paid the bulk of his medical bills. Thus, he had to pay them back from the settlement.
The good news?
When it came time to pay them back from the total settlement, they all reduced their liens by my attorney’s fees and costs.
Thus, the total out of pocket medical bills and liens were about $8,000. Therefore, GEICO paid about $57,000 for the pain and suffering part of the pedestrian’s accident settlement. 88% of the settlement was for pain and suffering.
Pedestrian Gets $20,000 Settlement for Rotator Cuff Tear
For a pedestrian who suffered personal injury when he was hit by a car that reversed and hit him. He suffered a full thickness torn rotator cuff. He did not have surgery.
We received $10,000 from the at fault driver’s insurance company Progressive.
We received another $10,000 from the pedestrian’s underinsured motorist company (U.S. Security). The settlement paid for the pedestrian’s out of pocket medical bills. Most of the settlement was for pain and suffering.
Pedestrian Gets $10,000 After Car Runs Over His Foot
Allstate paid $10,000 after a driver ran over a pedestrian’s foot. He claimed a soft tissue injury.
The accident happened in Miami Beach, Florida. We represented the pedestrian.
$10,000 Settlement (Policy Limits)
A driver of a car hit our client, a pedestrian. She had leg pain. It happened on private property in a parking lot in North Miami, Dade County, Florida.
The driver received a ticket for improper backing. He was insured with Clarendon National Insurance Company.
The driver of the car was underinsured. Our client did not own a car. She did not live with any resident relatives.
She qualified through the careless driver’s PIP coverage.
Clarendon Insurance Group was the US-based property and casualty subsidiary of Hannover Re. Clarendon spun off its ongoing property and casualty business as a separate entity called Praetorian Financial Group.
Praetorian Financial was subsequently acquired by QBE Insurance Group. In Florida QBE companies are:
- General Casualty Company of Wisconsin
- QBE Insurance Corporation
Our client said that he was standing in a car dealership parking lot in Miami-Dade County, Florida.. A mini van backed up. It hit him at an idle speed.
Our client’s knees buckled and he fell to the ground. He complained of lower back pain.
A few months before the accident, he had knee surgery. Immediately after this accident, he complained of knee pain. He did not have any swelling.
Miami-Dade Fire rescue came to the scene. Our client walked to the ambulance stretcher. He was put on a backboard.
The paramedics put a neck collar on our client. They transported him to Homestead Hospital.
State Farm Insurance insured the driver.
The driver said that he barely hit our client. He said that if contact was made, it was at a very low-speed.

- Cervical (neck) sprain/strain (Resolved)
