Pedestrian Accidents

Phoenix Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

Pedestrian accidents tend to occur when someone is jogging, walking or if a bicyclist is struck by a person operating a motor vehicle. If you or a loved one have been injured in a pedestrian accident, it is important that you contact an attorney as soon as you can.

If you or a loved one have been in a pedestrian accident, it is important that you consult with a personal injury attorney. Our legal team works on a contingency fee. This means that you do not need to pay anything when you retain us unless we win your case. At that point, we would take a percentage of compensation as our attorney retainer fee. We offer free case evaluations to help you determine what your next steps need to be.

What Damages Are Available in Pedestrian Accidents Claims?

Each state in the country has their own specific laws that grant legal protections and rights to the victims of a personal injury caused by the negligent actions of another. In most cases in Arizona, victims of a pedestrian accident can be awarded compensatory damages and punitive damages. Compensatory damages fall into two separate categories – economic and non-economic damages: 

  • Economic Damages: These damages would be the hard costs of the pedestrian accident. (medical and hospital bills, lost wages and emergency transportation) 
  • Non-Economic Damages: These damages would cover the intangible costs of your pedestrian accident. They would include the impact of the accident on your quality of life, pain and suffering and loss of consortium. 

The categories that fall under each of these damage types are:

  • Medical & Hospital Bills
  • Lost Income (Past, Present & Future)
  • Pain & Suffering
  • Loss of Consortium (Impairment of Affection & Companionship of a Spouse)
  • Mental Anguish & Emotional Distress
  • Costs of Funeral (Wrongful Death Cases)
  • Punitive Damages (Injury Claims Involving Particularly Egregious Conduct)

Why Should I Hire A Pedestrian Accident Lawyer?

The importance of hiring an attorney to manage your pedestrian accident claim is very high. An experienced attorney can help you understand the state and local laws, negotiate down your or a loved one’s medical bills and fight to get you the proper compensation to cover any damages you are experiencing from the accident.

Hiring a pedestrian accident lawyer can give you a better chance of securing fair compensation from an insurance company. Arizona is a fault-based car insurance state, this means that you need to prove the other party’s fault to recover compensation from their insurance company. You may need to go against an insurance company that denies liability. If you hire an attorney, they will give you an advantage during insurance settlement negotiations.

I hired Justin to represent my daughter after we were in a car accident. Justin explained the whole process to me and made the process simple to understand. I highly recommend Justin to anyone who needs a personal injury lawyer.

Justin is the best! His staff is amazing too! He's your go-to guy for all accident cases. My only complaint is that my wife thinks he's cute and it makes me uncomfortable. Lol. Thanks for the money Justin!

James O.

Justin was amazing dealing with a non-injury accident we experienced. He was able to get the at fault's insurance to pay despite the driver denying any wrong doing initially. He was quick to get a resolution for us so we could get repairs taken care of. Thanks, Justin!
