One pedestrian is killed every two hours as a result of car accidents nationwide. And according to the Governors Highway Safety Association, Arizona tops the list when it comes to pedestrian fatalities. In fact, authorities say that there has been a 35 percent rise in pedestrian deaths over the last 10 years across the state, contributing to a year-over-year increase in deaths nationwide.
Pedestrians are especially vulnerable to serious injuries or death, even when they’re following traffic laws. Victims are often left with severe physical and emotional trauma, including high medical costs, long-term physical problems, and lost wages. However, the victims and families affected by these accidents can seek legal aid from a skilled personal injury lawyer.
