Over 87 factors may affect whether a pedestrian has a case if a car or truck hits him or her.
We have settled many cases for pedestrians after a car or truck hit them in Florida. We have settled cases for our pedestrian clients who have claimed the following injuries:
If a car or truck hits a pedestrian, this can cause a herniated disc. We have settled many cases where our pedestrian clients, who claimed a herniated disc after a car or truck hit him or her in Florida.
These settlements included money to pay for medical bills, lost wages, pain, suffering, scarring and mental anguish.
Many of these settlements were in Miami-Dade or Broward County, Florida, including but not limited to Kendall, Miami Gardens, North Miami, Coral Gables, Doral, Homestead, Cutler Bay, Aventura, Hialeah and more.
We have also settled herniated disc pedestrian accident cases in other parts of the Florida.
We have collected money from the negligent driver’s bodily injury coverage.
In addition to settling many herniated disc cases for pedestrians, we have settled many other types of Florida injury cases where our client claimed a herniated disc.
Therefore, we have a solid understanding of the anatomy of a spinal disc.
We are ready to battle the insurance company’s argument that the herniated disc pre-existed the accident. We will fight their argument that it could not have been caused by the accident.
Just a few of our Florida settlements, where our client claimed a herniated disc, were in the following amounts: $300,000, $210,000, $100,000, $100,000, $100,000, $95,000.
All the settlements on this page are before deduction for attorney’s fees and expenses. Most cases result in a lower recovery. It should not be assumed that your case will have as beneficial a result.
We have had many other herniated disc settlements. We will spend as much time as it takes to build your Florida pedestrian herniated disc case in an attempt to prove that:
- the driver’s carelessness caused or aggravated your herniated disc; and
- the herniated disc is a permanent injury.
Where can some types of pedestrian accidents occur in Miami-Dade County or Florida?
Publix Supermarket (or other supermarket, store, mall) parking lots
Publix has 760 stores in Florida, so a car or truck can easily hit a pedestrian in the parking lot. In 2015, a car hit a woman in the Briar Bay Publix parking lot in Miami. She was severely injured.
We will make a claim against the bodily injury coverage of any potential defendants. We will make an uninsured motorist coverage claim, if appropriate.
We may also make a claim if there was inadequate lighting that caused the accident. We may make a claim if the parking lot had a dangerous design.
We settled a case for the policy limits of $10,000 where our client was hit in a non-Publix parking lot in North Miami, Dade County, Florida.
She complained of neck and back pain. The negligent driver was insured by Clarendon National Insurance Company (RAC Insurance Partners LLC).
The driver of the car that hit her was underinsured. Our client was insured under any auto policy with uninsured motorist coverage.
Our client’s PIP insurer had her examined by a chiropractor. Our Miami lawyer, Justin Ziegler, attended the medical visit with her to make sure that the chiropractor was treating her fairly. She was very pleased with the settlement.
