Need Any Help?
There are hundreds of pedestrian and bicycle accidents that occur yearly. In fact, Arizona has the highest rate of pedestrian deaths in the country, according to the Governor’s Highway Safety Association. As a bicyclist or pedestrian that must share the road with motorists and commercial vehicles, these encounters can lead to serious injuries, disfigurement, or death. Most of these encounters are caused by negligent or reckless motorists that fail to watch out for bicyclists and pedestrians in the roadway or crosswalks. AJ Law is here to help represent you if you have been hit by a motorist.
Distracted or impaired drivers are the biggest causes of bicycle and pedestrian-related accidents, and accidents can occur when drivers are not careful, such as:
In crosswalks, failing to yield to pedestrians.
Backing out of parking spots in a parking lot, or when backing out of a driveway
Speeding in a residential neighborhood is especially dangerous where there are children outside playing.
Not noticing pedestrians in a crosswalk when turning on a red light or stop sign.
Texting, talking, eating, or drinking while driving.
The driver drove onto the sidewalk and injured or killed a pedestrian.
The driver is impaired and under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Injuries that can occur from bicycle and pedestrian accidents can be extremely serious and could require long-term hospitalization, plastic surgery or could even lead to death. Traumatic Brain Injuries, Spinal Cord Injuries, Broken Bones, and even Wrongful Death can all be caused by bicycle and pedestrian accidents.
Physical trauma can lead to long-term health consequences. Head trauma can lead to brain injuries and long-term care may be needed for memory loss or motor function loss. Spinal Injuries can lead to severe nerve damage like paraplegia or quadriplegia that can affect someone for the rest of their lives.
