Getting hit by a car while you are walking is extremely horrible and hitting a pedestrian while driving is emotionally devastating. These are tragic either way. Being involved in a pedestrian accident is a scary incident that is very common. If you think about it, it’s not that hard to adhere to the rules concerning pedestrians but sometimes mistakes are made.
In Arizona, more than 1,500 pedestrian accidents happen annually and this is quite alarming. Incidents like this could be prevented if everyone was careful enough but still, accidents happen. Sometimes, the motorists or even the pedestrian is distracted and they don’t notice they are about to plunge into something that will alter their lives. When you are involved in a pedestrian accident and get injured, a lawsuit can be filed to determine who is responsible and to obtain compensation for said injuries or damages that have occurred. If the other party is found responsible, you will be compensated based on what was filed.
There are many things to know when one is involved in a pedestrian accident and it’s always best to seek help from people who are qualified and experienced in handling these kinds of cases. They will be able to explain the law and your rights and responsibilities precisely.
