One woman was killed yesterday as she stood waiting at a bus stop. A Nissan Pathfinder, which was heading west on Oakland Park Blvd., for unknown reasons, swerved off the road and crashed into the bus stop. This is just another example of deadly pedestrian accidents. Pedestrian car accidents raise a number of important legal and insurance issues to keep in mind. Uninsured/Underinsured motorist (UM) coverage can be critical. If a negligent driver does not have insurance, UM coverage is the only way to protect yourself.
