Our Williston Attorneys Fight to Recover Compensation for Your Losses
Recovering compensation following a pedestrian accident generally starts with a personal injury protection (PIP) insurance claim. To access your PIP coverage (which you’re required to carry), you don’t have to prove fault. You’re the policyholder, and you’re entitled to the coverage you’ve paid for.
If your damages exceed your PIP coverage, we can explore whether you can file a claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance. We aim to recover compensation that accounts for the full cost of your damages, which may include:
- Medical expenses
- Lost income and future earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Reduced quality of life
- Loss of consortium
The value of your potential settlement depends on many factors, each of which we account for in our calculations. The severity of your condition, plus the cost of your financial losses, affect your settlement or court award.

We Prove Liability in Your Pedestrian Accident Case
In a personal injury case, pursuing compensation requires showing that another party’s negligence caused your injury or the death of your loved one. To prove negligence in Williston, Florida, we search for evidence supporting these four factors:
- The at-fault party had a duty of care to those around them (for instance, a duty to drive safely and obey traffic laws).
- The at-fault party breached that duty, meaning they did not act with the same care that a reasonable person would have in the same situation.
- The other party’s actions, such as speeding or not stopping at a red light, caused an accident that injured you or a loved one.
- Your injury, or the death of your loved one, caused you to sustain losses.
Evidence becomes apparent as we investigate your case by talking to eyewitnesses, collecting police and medical reports, and reviewing traffic camera footage.
We Manage All Dealings With the Insurance Company
Our pedestrian accident attorneys in Williston identify all of your losses and file a claim with the liable insurance company. We then negotiate on your behalf for an appropriate settlement.
If the insurance company denies your claim or offers a low settlement, we prepare for trial and represent you in court. There is an opportunity to continue negotiations as the trial continues. Most personal injury cases never go to trial, and even those that do still may result in out-of-court settlements.
Our Williston personal injury attorneys have successfully recovered millions for our clients. In a recent pedestrian accident, a car struck our client when the driver pulled out of a parking lot. Our client required back surgery and a spinal stimulator implant. We recovered $1,250,000 in compensation for her.
