Tucson Pedestrian Attorneys
Our Legal Team Has Over 50 Years’ Experience
Pedestrians are not necessarily safer in marked crosswalks than in unmarked crosswalks, according to a study by the Federal Highway Safety Administration. What’s more, pedestrian accident rates are higher in marked crosswalks on multi-lane roads with high traffic volume.
In 2008, more than 1,500 pedestrian accidents occurred in Arizona, and more than 10 people suffered fatal pedestrian accidents, often from walking across or walking along a street. This data comes from the Arizona Department of Transportation. Those injured in Tucson from being hit by a car or other vehicle need a pedestrian accident attorney to represent them to ensure that proper compensation is paid.
After a pedestrian accident, it’s critical to obtain witness statements and hire necessary accident resconstruction experts, especially as the accident scene may change. Evidence must be carefully preserved.
Sources of Compensation After Pedestrian Injuries
If you’ve been hurt, or a family member is killed, in a pedestrian knockdown or other type of pedestrian collision (such as hit by a car while walking), did you know that your uninsured/underinsured motorist insurance may provide a source of compensation for your medical bills, lost income and pain and suffering associated with the accident? There is also an Arizona law that states if you are not at fault, your insurance rates cannot be raised for making a claim against your own uninsured or underinsured policy.
We will pursue all potential sources of compensation for your injuries. We will first look to the wrongdoer and his or her insurance company, but if those sources are insufficient, we will pursue any and all rights you have under your own insurance policies, and determine whether any other parties may be at fault for the incident, such as those who designed or maintained the road or crosswalk involved.
