Tucson Pedestrian Accident Attorney
Tucson, Arizona’s downtown corridor is thriving. Shops, boutiques, and restaurants line the city streets, shoulder to shoulder with condominiums and office buildings. With so much within reach, it is no wonder Tucsonans take to the sidewalks like they do. Although Tucson is a pedestrian-friendly city, motor vehicles remain a preferred mode of transportation for many. The result of this combination of pedestrian and motor traffic on congested city streets is a high risk of danger to pedestrians. Fortunately, pedestrian accident victims and their loved ones can rely on the trusted Tucson pedestrian accident attorneys at Rockafellow Law Firm to help them on the road to recovery.
Pedestrians in Tucson face a high risk of serious injury or death
As any pedestrian accident lawyers would agree, pedestrians face a heightened risk of serious injury or death in the unfortunate event of a collision with a car, truck or bus. Even accidents occurring at relatively low speeds can leave victims with severe head injury or crippling spinal cord injuries. Pedestrians simply are not afforded the protection of a motorist in a truck or automobile, or the security a helmet provides to motorcycle and bicycle riders.
Common causes of pedestrian accidents
Pedestrian accidents can happen for any number of reasons. But there are certain causes that tend to occur more frequently than others. These include:
- Drunk driving − in these cases the motorist is unable to handle an automobile with the care and responsibility needed
- Running red lights − too many drivers speed through red lights without considering that pedestrians may be present with the right of way to cross
- Distracted driving − drivers more concerned with their phone call or text message are unable to see pedestrians crossing the street ahead
