Mesa Pedestrian Accident Lawyers
Compensation for Pedestrian Injuries
If you have ever walked along Southern Avenue in Mesa, you know just how dangerous the local streets can be. Congestion is a regular occurrence, with motorists jockeying for a position to beat the rush. Intersections along the avenue can be particularly dangerous as reckless drivers attempt to run the red or turn when they shouldn't. Unfortunately, like many streets in Mesa, Southern Avenue is also lined with schools, shopping centers, and corporate parks - all hubs of activity for pedestrians. All it takes is one negligent driver, at the wrong moment to turn Southern Avenue from dangerous to deadly.
If you are reading this page, there is a good chance that you, or a loved one, have recently been involved in a similar situation, somewhere in Mesa. It could have been at any one of the city's many intersections, at any time of day. You may have been in a cross walk, you may have been just walking along the sidewalk. Whatever the case may be, you've been injured because of someone else's negligent actions behind the wheel. You probably have many questions about your legal options, such as:
- Can anyone be held responsible for my injuries?

What Kind of Compensation Can I Expect After a Pedestrian Accident in Mesa?
Personal injury claims are as unique as the people involved in them. Every detail matters and it all adds up to a specific outcome. This means that until we are able to review the facts of your claim, it is impossible to say with any certainty what your case may be worth.
However, the types of damages encountered in pedestrian accidents are often similar, meaning that you could be entitled to one or more of the following awards:
- Financial coverage for past, present, and future medical expenses
- Compensation for pain and suffering
- Lost wages and income
- Wrongful death
Keep in mind that Arizona uses a standard known as pure comparative negligence. This means that if you are partially responsible for your accident, that percentage would be subtracted from the total amount of compensation obtained. Meaning, if you ran into the street and outside of a designated crosswalk, you could be found 50 percent responsible for the ensuing accident. As a result, you would only receive 50 percent of the total amount awarded.
