At Hamilton Law Firm, PLLC we know that anyone in Phoenix, Scottsdale, or surrounding areas can become the victim of a pedestrian accident. If you are walking or riding a bike on a sidewalk, along the side of the road, in a parking lot, or in any other area where cars, motorcycles, or other vehicles have access, the unexpected can happen. Unfortunately, pedestrians often sustain devastating injuries that can be deadly or life-changing.

Victims who are hit by a car often suffer traumatic injuries, broken bones, head injuries, lacerations, disfigurement, internal injuries and more. Not only do they incur often insurmountable medical expenses, but lost income due to an inability to work. Pain and suffering may be compensated, as well as costs for rehabilitation. Those who are victims of a pedestrian accident should always consult with a reputable personal injury lawyer before simply accepting whatever the insurance companies believe to be the value of your claim.

 

For those involved in a bike accident, the same holds true. Cars, trucks, and motorcycles often strike those riding a bicycle for the same reasons those who are on foot are struck. Some of the most common reasons people are hit by vehicles include distracted driving (texting, using cell phones, eating, etc.), failure to yield or slow at crosswalks, failure to stop at traffic lights or signs, speeding, and taking turns too fast. Motorists often don’t look carefully enough behind them before backing out of a driveway or parking space.

 

Whether in a bike accident, hit in a crosswalk, or while jogging or running, motorists are required to practice the highest level of care when operating on Arizona’s roadways. Unfortunately this is not always the case. With our state having the highest rate of pedestrian deaths in the U.S., it is vital to focus on your own safety when walking, jogging, or biking. When the unexpected does happen, it can turn your life upside down very quickly.

 

If you or a loved one have been hit by a car, you deserve the fair compensation you are entitled to. Those in Phoenix and Scottsdale are urged to contact pedestrian accident lawyer Amy Hamilton at 480-544-9558.
