Pedestrian Accidents Involving Automobiles
Personal Injury Lawyers Serving Phoenix, AZ
Pedestrian accidents are very serious incidents that can lead to a number
of debilitating injuries and even fatalities. A pedestrian accident can
easily turn an otherwise healthy person’s life upside down in a
matter of moments. In the wake of a pedestrian accident, an individual
may accumulate medical bills related to their hospitalization or rehabilitative
care and may no longer be able to work or get through their daily routine.
Victims of pedestrian accidents may also require expensive adaptive equipment
and medication for long periods of time following their accident. All
of these unplanned-for expenses, coupled with the pain and emotional turmoil
they may be feeling, is an enormously difficult burden to bear.
In times like these, it is important to have someone you can trust to help
you understand your legal options and advocate for you on your behalf.

Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents
Although no amount of money can make up for the decreased quality of your
life, it can make your life easier by covering your mounting medical bills
and household expenses, especially when you are no longer able to work
or earn an income. However, in order to win a pedestrian accident case
and recover damages, you must prove that your accident was caused by another
person’s negligent actions.
Common forms of driver negligence that often lead to a pedestrian accident include:
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Failing to yield right-of-way
- Reckless driving, including speeding and unsafe lane changes
- Driving with distractions, including texting, talking on a phone, or eating
- Failing to obey traffic signs and signals
When drivers fail in their obligation to exercise care and good judgment
while driving, they put everyone on the road at risk. When you retain
the services of our firm, our legal team can help you hold careless drivers
accountable for their actions.
