- Pedestrian Accidents in AZ Involving Drunk Drivers
When people move around on foot, they often enjoy several benefits including fresh air, the chance to see new places and of course the benefits provided by exercise. However, when pedestrians are hit by moving vehicles, disaster often results, as the human body is simply not strong enough to withstand the force of an impact that’s generated by any moving vehicle. When a pedestrian is hit by a drunk driver in Arizona, the situation can be deadly. Anyone who has lost someone because of this situation should immediately seek the help of an Phoenix personal injury attorney, and below is a brief overview of this issue.
Arizona Pedestrian Accident Statistics
An analysis of this situation should start with a look at the statistics regarding Arizona pedestrian accidents, and these statistics are daunting. Every year, more than 1,500 pedestrian accidents take place in Arizona, and these collisions result in more than 1,300 injuries and more than 100 deaths. Broken down further, this equates to more than four Arizona pedestrian accidents per day and more than 3.5 injuries per day as a result of these collisions. This also equates to nearly two people per week being killed in these occurrences.
How Drunk Drivers Make Arizona Pedestrian Accidents Worse
Most of the time, when a motorist collides with a pedestrian, that motorist will see the pedestrian at the last second before the collision. This split-second will not prevent an injury, but even the slightest reduction in the force generated by a vehicle can make the difference between life and death. When someone has been drinking and then gets behind the wheel, that person’s vision, judgment and reaction time can all be seriously impaired. As a result, many car accidents that involve drunk drivers and pedestrians are such that the pedestrian endures the full force of the moving vehicle. Another problem with these situations is that a drunk driver is more likely to leave the scene of the accident than someone who has not been drinking, which not only makes it more difficult to reach a fair resolution of the matter but could also prevent the pedestrian from receiving critical, life-saving help.

They knew exactly how to explain the case to me in a way that I would understand it. They gave me hope that my life wasn’t over.
I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
Two family members were in a bad wreck a couple of years ago, and as a result called Phillips Law to represent them. Montana Thompson was the attorney assigned to the case with the help of Nemo Farr as legal assistant. Mr. Thompson litigated a very generous settlement for both my stepdaughter and her son. Because my grandson is a minor, I decided to act as conservator for him to ensure the settlement was safe and secure. Montana helped with that process, but it was Nemo who went way above and beyond the call in finding a financial institution to use for the restricted account. There were some glitches in that process but Nemo helped navigate them with a calm expertise which belies his age. I would consider them both great representatives of the level of commitment to their clients and assets to their firm.
