What would you do if a pedestrian was hit in Arizona? What if it was you? What if you sustained a serious injury? What if you couldn’t work for weeks or months? Who’s responsible for compensating you? And what type of compensation can you expect to receive? Money for medical expenses? Reimbursement for lost income? Financial aid for bills? What are your rights?
Questions often lead to more questions. That’s why you need a lawyer who may be able to provide you with answers. At Israel & Gerity, PLLC, we work tirelessly every day to provide people with the information they need to get their lives back on track.
How a pedestrian accident can happen
Pedestrian accidents can happen to anyone: children, runners, anyone using the road. Ideally, motorists are supposed to share the road with everyone using it. But often, accidents happen when motorists fail to leave enough space between them and pedestrians using the road.
Sometimes, pedestrian accidents happen in a crosswalk. When that happens, such cases are often very clear cut since the driver failed to stop and struck a pedestrian. But even, then, other factors can often come into play. Texting & cell phone use involving the driver may have been a factor. Drunk driving, speeding or reckless driving may also be the cause.
Other times, pedestrian accidents are not so clear-cut. The accident might have happened alongside the road. In some cases, the driver may try to blame the pedestrian, claiming the person darted out in front of them without warning.
