Arizona is a state where the climate and the beautiful landscape are made for traveling on foot. Anyone who has spent any time here understands that pedestrians are a regular sight, and it seems that steps have been taken to make Arizona pedestrian friendly. However, a recent study was released that led to negative news for the state, as it showed that Arizona pedestrian accidents occur at an alarmingly high rate, including those that are severe enough to require the help of Arizona pedestrian accident lawyers.
Arizona's rankings are negative in several respects, including:
There are many other statistics that do not paint a positive picture of traveling on foot in Arizona, but the point of the matter is that people who do so are encountering risks that in a statistical sense are greater than most other places around the United States.
While officials search for reasons for this rise in Arizona pedestrian accidents and the resulting injuries and fatalities, people continue to suffer as a result of these occurrences. If this includes you or someone you love, you do have legal rights and options at your disposal. Specifically, if the accident that led to the injury or worse was the fault of the motorist, the person who has been harmed could file an Arizona personal injury lawsuit and recover damages that compensate for medical costs, lost income and pain and suffering.
