Vehicles injure many walking, jogging or running pedestrians every year. In an auto accident involving a pedestrian, major injuries tend to occur including death. If you are hit by an automobile, it can force you to miss time from work and pay thousands of dollars in medical expenses. It is important that you contact an experienced attorney in these matters so that you can focus on your recovery knowing that someone has your back with recovering damages. 

Common Pedestrian Accident Injuries

Vehicle-Pedestrian accidents typically cause serious injuries to the pedestrian. These accidents tend to result in internal bleeding, broken bones or even death. Some of the common types of injuries that occur in these accidents are:

  • Severe Burns
  • Spinal Cord Damage
  • Broken Bones & Fractures

  • Amputated or Mangled Limbs

These injuries can be horrific and it is important to have any medical costs covered by the person that hit you. Using an experienced attorney in these scenarios will help make sure you maximize the money you receive to cover your medical bills. 

How Is Fault Determined In A Pedestrian Accident Case?

All Arizona drivers have a legal duty to drive with reasonable care and to obey all traffic laws. If the driver breaks those traffic laws, then they can be at fault for the injuries of the pedestrian. However, pedestrians also have the duty to exercise reasonable care while navigating the roads of Arizona. The state of Arizona follows the pure comparative fault theory. This means that the pedestrian and the driver can both be at fault on a scale of 1 to 100. An example of this would be if the pedestrian was deemed to only be 10% at fault, then the recovered damages would only be 90% of the asking amount in the lawsuit. 

What Kinds Of Damages Can Be Claimed In Pedestrian Accident Lawsuits?

In a pedestrian accident, you are able to claim economic and non economic damages. Some of these damages are:

  • All Medical Expenses
  • Property Damage
  • Pain & Suffering
  • Loss of Quality of Life
  • Lost Income
  • Disability
