Phoenix Pedestrian Injury Attorneys Fight for Your Rights on the Road
Professional lawyers help you seek justice after a pedestrian or crosswalk injury in Arizona
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention states that in 2013, there were more than 4,000 pedestrian deaths. 150,000 additional pedestrians were admitted to emergency rooms or hospitals as a result of injuries occurring from a motor vehicle hitting them. Unfortunately, many of those were in Arizona. If you or a loved one has been hit by a motor vehicle as a pedestrian, you need to know who is at fault and what are your rights.
At Plattner Verderame, P.C., our Phoenix pedestrian accident lawyers are committed to helping our pedestrian injury clients understand the scope of their injuries and the facts of their case. Medical bills are not cheap, and we work hard to make sure you get justice and compensation if the negligent actions of a motorist or driver caused you to be hurt. Pedestrian injuries can lead to chronic pain, loss of work time or jobs, and emotional distress. You will need experienced legal representation to help you obtain the justice and compensation you deserve. If a loved one has suffered a wrongful death due to a pedestrian injury, we have a compassionate and dedicated team of lawyers that can assist you in your most difficult time.
Causes of pedestrian accidents
Since 1991, our law firm has been focused on helping seriously injured people to seek justice in Arizona courtrooms. Our Phoenix pedestrian injury attorneys are exceptionally qualified and aggressively litigate significant pedestrian injuries. Whether the motorist that hit you wasn’t paying attention or they were under the influence, we can help you choose your best course of action. Some common causes of pedestrian injuries in Arizona are:
- Distracted drivers. In the age of cell phones, selfies and texting, the number of distracted drivers has skyrocketed.
- Drunk drivers. In Phoenix, a pedestrian-heavy city, drunk drivers hitting people is unfortunately common.
- Speeding drivers. Some motorists just don’t know when to pump the breaks. This could lead to significant pedestrian injuries.
- Tired drivers. When a driver gets behind the wheel without much sleep, they can make grave errors that hurt pedestrians.
If you or a loved one has been hit by a car while walking, you need to be represented by an aggressive attorney with the skills and experience to obtain justice and restitution. You have the right to an investigation and collection of evidence, and our lawyers are there to help.
