The last thing you expect when crossing the street is to be hit by a negligent driver. Pedestrians have the right-of-way when crossing the street, or even when walking in the street, as long as they are within the law. It is legal to cross the street within a crosswalk as long as the “walk” sign is lit or, if no there is no signal, within any marked crosswalk as long as oncoming traffic has plenty of time to stop. Pedestrians may also walk in the street when no sidewalk is available as long as they are facing oncoming traffic and are not obstructing traffic in any manner. Any motorist who hits a pedestrian due to negligence or reckless behavior is liable for any and all damages. Finding the right Phoenix Pedestrian Accident Lawyer is essential when it comes to maximizing your settlement.
When a vehicle hits a pedestrian, the resulting damage is almost always catastrophic. Most pedestrian accidents result in serious injuries or wrongful death. The medical bills for injuries such as broken bones, head injuries, and spinal cord injuries are anything but affordable and should not have to be paid out of the victim’s pocket. If you or someone you love has been in a pedestrian accident, do not hesitate to file a claim for personal injury with help from a Phoenix personal injury lawyer.
