According to a recent and tragic report, an elderly couple was killed at the same time when they were hit by a vehicle that appeared to be speeding. This pedestrian accident is not only heart-wrenching, but it happens far too frequently. Much too often, Arizona drivers forget that they share the road with people who are crossing the street. Arizona drivers become too casual and stop being vigilant about looking around and making sure that they are not going to cause serious injury to somebody who is walking on the sidewalk and about to cross the street through a crosswalk or elsewhere.
However, there are also very real difficulties for somebody who was injured while they were a pedestrian. We suspect that if you asked every one of the best pedestrian accident lawyers and car accident lawyers in Phoenix, Arizona, they would almost all agree that there is a certain suspicion of the pedestrian when cases go before a jury. Insurance companies will use this to their advantage and try to pay many pedestrians less than they are entitled to. The angle used is to have the jury or the driver recall times where a pedestrian cut in front of them or did something dangerous that concerned them.
