Hernando County authorities have been busy of late with pedestrians struck by Florida drivers. According to the Hernando Times’ Kyle Martin, a 35-year old Spring Hill woman was recently hit by a Jeep Laredo as she walked on the side of Amero Lane in Spring Hill–the unincorporated population center of Hernando County, Florida.
Reports indicate the Spring Hill woman’s condition is critical. It is unclear what the circumstances surrounding the pedestrian’s actions or the inaction of the driver to avoid the auto accident.
Spring Hill Personal Injury Lawyer Jason Melton represents victims of car crashes where a pedestrian is injured. Assuming the fault of the auto injury falls upon the driver of the Jeep Laredo, it is commonplace in such an accident that both the Bodily Injury (BI) Auto Insurance coverage of tort feasor (here, that would be the driver of the Jeep Laredo) and the Under or Uninsured Motorist (UM) Auto Insurance coverage of the injured party would come into play.
