Christopher Lee Anderson was reported to have been struck as a pedestrian on December 28, 2019 in Lake Wales, Florida. Police are searching for a mid-1990’s green Honda Accord with a missing rear view mirror who left the scene of the accident after the collision. Anderson is reported to remain at Lakeland Regional Health Medical Center.
Help for Hit and Run Accident Victims
In Florida, body shops are required to report repairs that are accident related to police for comparison for purposes of identifying hit and run accidents. While the police do their investigative work, a car accident attorney can help you identify different sources of potential recovery as well as discuss how you can handle your medical bills and lost wages.
Pedestrian Accidents Victims
People who are hit as pedestrians frequently sustain a much higher degree of injury due to the collision itself. These injuries are often exponentially more expensive to get medical treatment for and often result in high permanent injury ratings.
For a hospitalization such as Mr. Anderson’s, any no-fault insurance that he might have had would have been gone on the first day of treatment. Health insurance may also be available to offset damages under a liability claim. Additionally, a pedestrian hit by a hit and run driver or uninsured vehicle may be eligible for uninsured motorist benefits from either their own auto policy or a family member whom they live with.
