Phoenix | Tucson | español

Every year, countless pedestrians face the danger of being injured in accidents. It’s a sobering reality that simply walking down the street can put you at risk of being struck by a car, truck, or any other vehicle. But it’s not just vehicles that pose a threat. Pedestrians can also suffer injuries from hazards like debris on sidewalks, faulty walkway construction, or poorly maintained paths.

For pedestrians, the stakes are incredibly high. In accidents involving motor vehicles, pedestrians often bear the brunt of the impact, resulting in severe injuries or even fatalities. Despite this disproportionate risk, many injured pedestrians struggle to receive fair compensation for their suffering.

If you’ve been injured as a pedestrian, you don’t have to face the legal complexities alone. Jonathan Solorzano at the Solorzano Law Team understands your challenges and is here to help. As an experienced Phoenix accident lawyer, Jonathan will stand by your side, guiding you through seeking the compensation you deserve for your injuries.

Pedestrian Traffic Accidents

As a pedestrian, you have every right to seek compensation for your injuries like anyone else involved in a vehicle accident.

Arizona sees over 100,000 motor vehicle crashes annually, with Maricopa County bearing the brunt of about 70% of these incidents. Surprisingly, although pedestrian-involved accidents make up less than 2% of all crashes statewide, they tragically account for nearly 19% of traffic fatalities. What’s even more alarming is that approximately 90% of these accidents result in injuries or fatalities.

In many cases, driver negligence is the primary cause of pedestrian accidents. Whether it’s speeding, texting behind the wheel, distracted driving, or disregarding traffic signals, drivers often fail to operate their vehicles safely and responsibly. Factors like DUI, disobeying traffic signs, or failing to signal also contribute to these accidents.

However, it’s essential to recognize that pedestrians also have a role to play in ensuring their safety. By crossing only at marked crosswalks, obeying traffic lights and signs, and being vigilant before crossing the road, pedestrians can reduce their risk of being involved in accidents.

Don’t hesitate to seek legal guidance if you’ve been injured as a pedestrian due to someone else’s negligence. You deserve fair compensation for your injuries, and an experienced attorney can help you navigate the complexities of your case and fight for the justice you deserve.

What Should I do if I have been Involved in a Pedestrian Accident?

It’s crucial to acknowledge that being in a pedestrian accident can be a deeply distressing experience. The individuals responsible for your injuries might exploit your shock to shift blame onto you. In such situations, it’s imperative to take specific steps to protect yourself:

1. If you can do so safely, move to a secure area away from traffic.
2. Contact the police and paramedics immediately to report the accident and seek medical assistance.
3. Remain at the scene until emergency services arrive, ensuring that all necessary information is collected.
4. Gather contact details from any witnesses who saw the accident occur.
5. Refrain from providing statements to anyone at the scene, including the police, other involved parties, witnesses, or insurance representatives.
6. Without delay, reach out to a knowledgeable attorney specializing in pedestrian accidents.

Following a pedestrian accident, you must act swiftly to safeguard your rights and interests. By contacting The Solorzano Law Team promptly, Jonathan can offer you invaluable guidance, outline your legal options, and shield you from potential exploitation by the other party involved.

Why do I need an Attorney?

Seeking the assistance of a seasoned personal injury attorney immediately following a pedestrian accident is paramount. With swift action, an experienced attorney can:

1. Interview witnesses promptly to preserve their recollection of events before memories fade.
2. Maintain ongoing communication with witnesses throughout the case proceedings.
3. Gather crucial evidence swiftly, as evidence collection can become challenging over time.
4. Ensure compliance with the statute of limitations governing personal injury cases.

Mr. Solorzano will comprehensively investigate your claim, diligently pursuing recovery for all the damages you’ve incurred. Depending on the specifics of your case, you may be eligible for compensation covering:

– Medical expenses, encompassing both present and future costs.
– Lost wages resulting from missed work due to the accident.
– Compensation for lost earning potential if the injuries affect your ability to work in the long term.
– Damages for pain and suffering endured as a result of the accident.
– Loss of consortium, if the accident has impacted your relationship with your spouse or family.
– Property damage, including damage to personal belongings or clothing.
– In certain instances, punitive damages may also be awarded.

By entrusting your case to Mr. Solorzano, you can rest assured that your interests will be vigorously advocated for, and every effort will be made to secure the compensation you deserve.

The Insurance Companies

It’s common for pedestrians injured in auto accidents to consider negotiating with the driver’s insurance company independently. However, many victims find themselves unequipped to handle the complexities of dealing with claims managers and adjusters. While insurance representatives may claim to have your best interests at heart, it’s crucial to remember that their primary objective is to minimize payouts, even if it means offering inadequate compensation.

In most cases, insurance companies only respond to assertive action. To compel them to take your claim seriously, you require a tenacious negotiator who is unafraid to pursue legal action, including litigation if necessary, to safeguard your rights and interests.
