Pedestrian Accident

Our client was severely injured while attempting to cross U.S. Highway 19 in Palm Harbor. After assuring his path was clear, the teenage pedestrian attempted to cross the southbound lanes. The driver of a vehicle failed to pay attention and changed lanes into the lane the pedestrian was crossing. As a result, the driver of the car struck the pedestrian. As the pedestrian was getting up from the first impact, another car failed to notice the stopped vehicle and the pedestrian and struck the pedestrian. The two impacts resulted in a broken leg and other medical issues. Attorney Matthew Noyes was able to secure PIP benefits through the pedestrian’s foster mother’s car insurance policy to pay some of the medical bills. After battling with the carriers, the insurance company for each of the cars that struck him agreed to pay their policy limits to resolve the claim.
