Help For Pedestrian Accident Victims
Were you hit by a car while walking or running? Did a vehicle crash into you and your family? While no amount of money can replace what you have lost, a personal injury claim or lawsuit can provide you with compensation for missed time from work, medical expenses, continued treatment and pain and suffering.
If you were injured in a pedestrian accident, contact an experienced lawyer at David Shapiro Law, PLLC, and learn about your options. From our office in Scottsdale, we assist personal injury victims throughout the surrounding communities of Arizona.
Protecting Your Rights And Holding Others Accountable
In the aftermath of a catastrophic accident between a car and a pedestrian, most people are overwhelmed with recovery and financial concerns. Insurance companies often take advantage of victims and their families. A carrier will try to settle your case for as little as possible.
Don’t talk to an insurance company or accept a settlement offer without first talking to an experienced pedestrian accident lawyer.
We regularly handle motor vehicle accident claims involving pedestrians. Let our experience work in your favor. We will fight for your right to full compensation for your losses, and we will aggressively pursue the best possible outcome for you and your family both in the courtroom and during settlement negotiations.
What You Can Expect From Us
Attorney David Shapiro will meet with you himself during your initial consultation. He will explain your options and work with you to create a winning strategy for your claim. Then, our legal team will immediately start building your case by collecting evidence, talking to witnesses, reviewing medical records and contacting our national network of world-class experts.
Often, police and other investigators will be quick to blame the pedestrian for a collision with a motor vehicle. Unfortunately, because these injuries almost always incapacitate the pedestrian victim, police usually only get one side of the story: the driver’s version. This inherently creates tremendous bias in favor of the motor vehicle operator and hurts the pedestrian’s case.
At David Shapiro Law, PLLC, our team will launch their own investigation to find out if there is a basis for liability on the part of the motor vehicle operator. For example, was the driver speeding or distracted? Was the driver a known offender of Arizona traffic laws? Are there other witnesses besides the driver and pedestrian? Is there surveillance video from a nearby business?
These are all of the questions that a diligent, dedicated and aggressive personal injury lawyer should be asking. In addition, under A.R.S. 28-794, every driver of a vehicle shall, “Exercise due care to avoid colliding with any pedestrian on any roadway.” This is an important statute that further protects pedestrians from being hit by motorists.
At David Shapiro Law, PLLC, our firm will work tirelessly on your behalf to obtain a favorable outcome for your pedestrian injury.
