Pedestrians May Be Entitled To Compensation If Injured By A Car
As Arizona cities become busier with more and more cars on the road, it becomes increasingly important for drivers to share the road with pedestrians. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Many drivers fail to observe the Arizona laws that govern right-of-way at school zones, crosswalks, stoplights and stop signs. Others drive too fast down residential streets. The result is an increasing number of injured pedestrians.
The consequences of pedestrian accidents can be serious, with injuries including brain injury, spinal injury and paralysis, and wrongful death. These injuries are often life-changing and can be especially devastating when they happen to children.

When you or a loved one has been involved in an accident as a pedestrian, it is important to act quickly. The first priority should be seeking proper medical care, but paying attention to the details can also be very important. Make sure you get the names of any witnesses to the accident. It is also helpful to take photographs, to document medical treatments and costs and to talk with a lawyer. At Harris Powers & Cunningham, we recommend that you speak with us before you talk with the responsible party’s insurance company. Settling too soon with the insurance company or incorrectly admitting fault can prevent you from getting the financial support you need in the future.
