Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents

Distracted Driving: Drivers who are texting, talking on the phone, or engaged in other distractions are less likely to notice pedestrians in crosswalks.

Speeding: Excessive speed reduces a driver’s ability to react to pedestrians, increasing the severity of accidents.

Failure to Yield: Drivers who fail to yield the right-of-way to pedestrians at crosswalks and intersections put lives at risk.

Running Red Lights: Disobeying traffic signals can lead to collisions with pedestrians legally crossing the road.

Impaired Driving: Alcohol or drug-impaired drivers are less likely to see and react to pedestrians.

Inadequate Lighting: Poorly lit streets and crosswalks can make pedestrians less visible to drivers, especially at night.

Steps to Take After a Pedestrian Accident

We understand that the moments following a pedestrian accident can be chaotic and overwhelming. However, taking certain steps can help protect your rights and strengthen your potential claim:

1. Seek Immediate Medical Attention: Your health is paramount. If you are injured, seek medical attention immediately, even if your injuries seem minor. Some injuries may not be immediately apparent but can have long-term consequences.

2. Contact the Authorities: If the accident involves a vehicle, call the police to report the incident. Ensure that a formal accident report is filed.

3. Document the Accident: Take photos and videos of the accident scene, your injuries, and the surrounding area. Include date and time stamps on your photos.

4. Gather Witness Information: If there were any witnesses to the accident, obtain their contact information, including full name, phone number, and email address.

5. Preserve Evidence: Keep any clothing or footwear that may have been damaged in the accident as evidence.

I have had the pleasure of working with Mr. Fielding in the past, and I cannot recommend him and his team enough. They're true professionals from intake to close outs, and will make sure a difficult process goes as smoothly as possible. All-around great guy and one heck of an attorney.

As a fellow Arizona attorney, my interactions with Fielding Law was top notch. Both attorneys and support staff were friendly and helpful. Plus, their office in Tempe is brand new and very cool.

It was great to have Clark and his team in our corner. We were t-boned by someone that ran a red light. However, while we were being taken to the hospital, the other driver told the police that it was our fault. With things not looking good, Clark was able to get our side of the story reported to the police, deal with all the doctors and insurance people and get us a settlement. They went above and beyond what we thought was possible. Can’t imagine dealing with this nightmare without Clark and his team.
