A female pedestrian was walking at the intersection of National Turn Pike and the Outer Loop when she was hit by a car driven by Heidi Diaz, age 32. The female pedestrian who was walking was taken to University of Louisville Hospital in critical condition. The driver of the car that hit the walker was charged with DUI.
When pedestrians are hit by cars, the accidents are treated much like car on car auto accidents. In pedestrian accidents, because the injuries can be so severe, it is important to consider all possible insurance coverage issues to be sure that the injured person will be able to fully recover the from their injuries, be afforded compensation for their medical bills, and be able to seek legal justice for their pain and suffering.
