There are three primary factors which determine the outcome of a pedestrian accident case: cause, liability, and damages.
Cause relates to the action or circumstance which directly leads to an accident. Did the driver commit an error, or did the pedestrian cross the road in a reckless fashion? Was inadequate signage the issue? Or perhaps a dysfunctional traffic light? Once cause has been established, liability can then be determined.
Liability refers to the at-fault party, which is generally the person or entity that carries the blame for an accident. If driver error was the cause, it usually follows that the driver is liable. Same goes for the pedestrian. If dangerous road conditions contributed to the accident, then the government entity responsible for the area where the collision took place can be held accountable for damages.
Damages refer to the financial, physical, and emotional tolls that result from an accident – medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and so on. The more damages there are, the more the victim is entitled to recover in the form of monetary compensation.
In all injury cases, including those involving pedestrian accidents, the burden of proof lies on the claimant, not the defendant. Without legal expertise, you may find it extremely difficult, if not impossible, to establish liability and win your case. It is highly recommended that you seek assistance from a lawyer who has ample experience handling these types of cases.
If you decide to hire Breyer Law Offices, P.C. as your legal representative, we will conduct a thorough investigation of your case to find evidence that supports your side of the story. We will look into police and medical reports, witness statements, expert testimony, physical evidence extracted from the crash site, and any other material that may contribute to your success.
Do not wait too long to get started on your Arizona personal injury claim. With time, vital evidence may be lost or destroyed and witnesses may forget important details of their accident account. Also, there is the statute of limitations to consider. To prevent the weakening or total loss of your claim, contact us as soon as possible.
