Pedestrian Accident Attorney in Phoenix

In densely populated regions like Phoenix, people opt to walk or bike to avoid heavy traffic, which can be cost-effective. Still, it risks severe injury or death from pedestrian accidents. In Arizona, it's a legal requirement for drivers to exercise caution when navigating around other drivers and pedestrians. Unfortunately, many pedestrians fall victim to fatal accidents caused by reckless drivers who fail to follow traffic rules or use proper signaling.

If you were involved in a motor vehicle accident as a pedestrian, seeking legal representation is crucial. At Fedon Injury Law, we offer the services of an experienced attorney who will work tirelessly to secure fair compensation for your damages. We provide a free consultation to understand your case's specifics so we can guide you through the legal process.

Determining Fault in a Pedestrian Accident

As a pedestrian traveling through the town, safeguarding yourself should be your top priority. It's essential to familiarize yourself with the Arizona pedestrian laws that apply to you. These laws are specifically designed to ensure your safety and minimize the possibility of dangerous collisions with motorists. Adhering to these laws can assist drivers by allowing them to anticipate your movements.

When you're on foot, making yourself noticeable to drivers is crucial. Additionally, it's necessary to remain vigilant and assume that motorists may not see you, particularly during the nighttime. Preparing for such situations can help you avoid dangerous accidents and stay safe while on the road.

If you're a pedestrian in Phoenix, there are specific laws that you should keep in mind:

Crossing Intersections: Pedestrians can cross marked or unmarked intersections if safe. If the intersection has traffic control devices, pedestrians must wait for the walk signal before crossing and may only travel between the adjacent intersections.

Crosswalks: In Arizona, drivers must always give way to pedestrians at marked crosswalks or allow them to cross the road. When drivers are on the same side of the road as pedestrians and close enough to the opposite side to pose a danger, drivers must yield to them.

Pedestrian Yield Signs: If you come across a Yield to Pedestrian sign on a road or walkway, vehicles must come to a complete stop and yield to pedestrians at both marked and unmarked crosswalks.

When approaching an unmarked intersection, pedestrians are required to yield the right of way to vehicles. It's essential to wait at a safe location and remain on the curb until it's safe to cross. You may still be entitled to compensation if you've violated a pedestrian law and are subsequently injured.

Compensation and Recovering Damages in Arizona

In Phoenix, if a driver's negligence results in a pedestrian's injury, the pedestrian can sue the responsible parties for monetary compensation. Hiring an experienced personal injury attorney can help you recover damages to pay for all your injury expenses. Although the at-fault party's insurance may cover some of your medical expenses, relying solely on insurance companies for full coverage is unwise. Insurance companies aim to pay as little as possible, so hiring a lawyer is in your best interest.

You can seek compensation for the following damages through a Phoenix pedestrian accident claim:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages and potential future earnings
  • Emotional distress
  • Current and future medical bills and expenses
  • Permanent disability
  • Therapy and physical rehabilitation
  • Medication costs
  • In-home care
  • Nursing care
  • Assistance expenses

Proving Negligence in an Arizona Pedestrian Accident

In most pedestrian accidents, the driver is typically at fault for failing to exercise reasonable care to ensure the pedestrian's safety, as required by law. However, in some cases, other parties, like the City of Phoenix, may be held responsible for the accident if they fail to construct the road properly, maintain the sidewalks and parking lots, or keep the traffic signals in working condition.

Here are some key elements in proving negligence in a claim:

  • The defendant breached the duty of care.
  • You suffered an injury or were harmed as a result of the accident.
  • The defendant owed you a legal responsibility to provide care.
  • The accident was caused by the defendant's failure to fulfill their duty of care.
