Were You Injured When A Driver Failed To Look Left Before Turning?
At Breyer Law Offices, P.C., we are quite proud of the fact that we have helped many pedestrians who have been injured in car accidents. A car collision involving a pedestrian is always a very dangerous situation. Even a car moving very slowly can cause serious damage and injury to someone who is on foot. Walkers lack the protection provided by a large steel automobile. They don't have the benefit of a seatbelt to protect and hold them in place in the event of an impact. A vehicle weighing thousands of pounds exerts a huge force upon a person who is simply walking.
Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents
One of the most common types of accidents that causes serious injury to pedestrians occurs when a car turns right and strikes a pedestrian who on a crosswalk. This particularly happens with the car is coming out of a private driveway or has been waiting for a light to change at an intersection. Instead of looking to the right to make sure no pedestrians are in the way, many drivers simply look to their left and turn right without taking the proper precaution.
To make matters worse, after the fact almost all these drivers claim that the accident was the pedestrian's fault instead of admitting responsibility. They maintain that the pedestrian walked or darted in front of their vehicle. They say the pedestrian was not paying adequate attention. They say the pedestrian "came out of nowhere." These are just a few common defenses used by negligent drivers.
For this reason, it is critically important for injured pedestrians to hire a top Arizona personal injury lawyer to professionally handle their pedestrian accident claim. Making sure that the claim is prepared competently so a strong case can be made is absolutely vital.
If you have been involved in a serious accident and suffered injury while on foot, it is important to speak to an experienced lawyer before trying to proceed on your own-even if you don't choose to hire a lawyer. This does not mean that every pedestrian accident necessarily requires a lawsuit or an insurance claim of any kind. But before you risk forfeiting important rights, it is worthwhile to speak to the best possible Peoria accident lawyer to get the answers to all your questions.
