What Is A Pedestrian Accident?
A “pedestrian accident” occurs when a pedestrian, or bicyclist is struck by an operator of a scooter, pushbike, car, motorbike, or motorized vehicle. The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) authored “Motor Vehicle Crash Facts” in 2018. The report demonstrates that automobile-pedestrian collisions are increasing in Arizona.
If you or a loved one has been struck by a car while walking, jogging, or riding a bicycle in Phoenix or Scottsdale, it is imperative that you consult with a qualified pedestrian accident attorney. According to Arizona’s statutes of limitations, you have a limited amount of time to file a claim to recover monetary damages.

Common Injuries From Pedestrian Accidents
Pedestrians sustain many of the same types of injuries as vehicle occupants in collisions, but pedestrians who are struck by cars typically sustain incapacitating injuries. Tragically, families may lose a loved one prematurely if a driver places reading a text message ahead of the safety of a pedestrian. The difficult emotional hardships associated with such a loss are compounded by the associated financial hardships of a loss of household income, medical bills, and burial/funeral costs. The following are among the most frequent injuries sustained in pedestrian accidents!
Spinal Cord Injuries
Because the spinal cord transmits messages between the brain and the body, spinal cord injuries frequently result in permanent disability.
Depending on their location and severity, lacerations can lead to permanent disfigurement, infection risks, and excruciating pain.
Because pedestrians lack significant protection from injury, they are susceptible to suffering from compound fractures that necessitate the insertion of medical devices such as pins and screws, as well as surgery.
Depending on the design of a vehicle’s hood, pedestrians struck by a distracted driver may sustain a variety of pelvic injuries/fractures.
When a pedestrian sustains a head injury, the damage to the brain can result in impaired cognitive function, permanent disability, and even death.
Many internal injuries, including rib fractures, organ damage, internal bleeding, and brain bleeds, can be life-threatening.
What Compensation Is Available for Pedestrian Accidents?
Arizona has specific laws that provide legal protections and rights to victims of personal injuries caused by another’s negligence. These laws permit the victim or the victim’s family to recover financial compensation. Damages is the legal term for “monetary compensation” in the state of Arizona. If the case goes to trial, the victim could be awarded punitive damages. The purpose of punitive damages is to award the plaintiff with additional monetary compensation in order to “punish” the defendant. In addition to deterring the defendant from repeating the same negligent behavior in the future, punitive damages are intended to punish the defendant for his or her misconduct. Punitive damages are not always awarded in personal injury cases. The following types of damages may be available in an Arizona personal injury case!
- Hospital And Medical Expenses
- Lost Income (Past, Present, And Future)
- Property Damage (E.G., Vehicle Damage)
- Distress And Suffering
- Loss Of Alliance (Impairment Of Affection And Companionship Of A Spouse)
- Mental Agony And Emotional Suffering
- Costs Associated With A Burial Or Funeral (Wrongful Death Cases)
- Punitive Damages (Injury Claims Involving Particularly Egregious Conduct)
