Pedestrian Critically Injured After Being Hit by Truck

Pedestrian Critically Injured After Being Hit by Truck

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

Victims of 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.
