Chandler Pedestrian Accident Lawyers

Everyone has different preferences when it comes to transportation, but there is one we all share – everyone is a pedestrian. Like bicyclists, pedestrians have virtually no protection and are extremely vulnerable to injuries from automobiles. In any case, especially with young children and senior citizens, the potential for injuries is extremely high and can result in catastrophic injuries and fatalities. Even low-speed collisions can result in serious, life-altering injuries. Therefore, drivers must always exercise safe driving habits and must always be aware of pedestrians and bystanders.

What Happens If a Car Hits You as You Cross the Street?
Drivers often do not see pedestrians in the crosswalk and will strike them while they are crossing the road. If pedestrians survive their accidents, they will most likely have sustained serious injuries that are not only painful but also difficult to live with. It is likely that they will also incur medical bills and may require extended rehabilitation to recover from their injuries.

Circumstances that can make drivers liable for the accident can include:

  • Not paying attention to their surroundings
  • Not following posted speed limits
  • Failing to yield to pedestrians in crosswalks or at traffic lights
  • Not properly using their turn signals
  • Not obeying traffic laws

But the pedestrian may be blamed for negligence if he/she is seen rushing in front of the car, jaywalking, failing to make use of the designated crosswalks, ignoring the signals during the traffic lights, and not paying attention to surroundings during the traffic situation.

There could also be a small possibility that the pedestrian accident was caused by the vehicle itself. Was the accident a result of the presence of defective parts on the vehicle that caused it to malfunction? In such a scenario, both the driver and the pedestrian may be able to file a case against the manufacturer of the vehicle.

Pedestrian Accident Compensation
In most cases, pedestrians have a right to receive money from the negligent person that caused their accident. For this reason, injured pedestrians owe it to themselves to speak with a qualified personal injury attorney. Pedestrians have a right to recover compensation for medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering. There is no question that a qualified pedestrian accident attorney will help you navigate through the legal complexities and protect your best interests.

If you are a victim of a pedestrian accident, there are several potential sources of recovery for pedestrians injured in motor-vehicle related crashes. First, the at-fault or negligent driver’s automobile insurance will be responsible for paying all costs of medical expenses, out-of-pocket expenses, lost wages, property damages, and pain and suffering damages. If the at-fault driver does not have enough insurance or has an insufficient amount of insurance, the injured pedestrian can seek compensation from his or her own automobile insurance, commonly known as underinsurance or un-insurance.

If the victim of a pedestrian accident died during the incident, surviving family members of the victim might take the role of filing charges and legal action against the other party in order to receive the necessary compensation for the damages caused by the accident. The surviving family members may recover funeral expenses, medical expenses, received financial support in the form of lost income.
