A pedestrian who was struck by a pickup truck while crossing the street
is now fighting to stay alive.
Tiffani Nichols, 58, was crossing the street-not in a crosswalk-when a
truck traveling on the southbound side of the road hit her. Unconscious
but still breathing, she rushed to a Scottsdale area hospital.
Now in critical condition, Nichols is fighting for her life. The accident
left her with multiple injuries, although the extent of her injuries has
not been disclosed.
Because speed and alcohol do not seem to be a factor, police say it's
unlikely the driver will be criminally charged.
Recovering Compensation for a Pedestrian Accident
pedestrian accidents often suffer from
serious injuries, mainly because the human body is not designed to withstand a collision
with a moving vehicle weighing several thousand pounds. If you have suffered
an injury in a pedestrian accident, you may be entitled to compensation
for your injuries, medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
However, to recover compensation, you must prove that the accident was
caused by another person's reckless or negligent conduct. An experienced
lawyer at the Knowles Law Firm, PLC can review your case to determine
if another party is at fault for the accident, and then help you pursue
an injury lawsuit for maximum compensation.
