- UA Student Critically Injured in Tucson Pedestrian Accident | Legal News | News Ticker
People who walk to and from destinations tend to understand that when they venture out into the roads that are shared with motorists, they face some level of risk and must trust that those in moving vehicles will avoid disastrous mistakes. Unfortunately, even standing on the corner of an intersection can be dangerous, as a 21-year-old student at the University of Arizona was hit and critically injured on Wednesday in a Tucson pedestrian accident that began as a two-vehicle car accident.
According to witness accounts, this Tucson pedestrian accident occurred on Wednesday at approximately 9:45 a.m. at the intersection of Mountain Avenue and Speedway Boulevard. Two vehicles, including a Toyota and a Chevrolet, collided in the intersection, and the force of the impact caused the Toyota to roll over. As a result, the pedestrian whose name was not released was hit by the rolling Toyota and pinned against a nearby building. She was rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. Although police have yet to confirm the information, one witness stated that the Toyota ran through a red light at the intersection at a high rate of speed while the Chevrolet was waiting to turn left.
Arizona Pedestrian Accident Statistics
First and foremost, we’d like to offer our hope that the young woman who was critically injured is able to survive and overcome the extreme amount of harm she suffered. It appears she did nothing wrong but was merely in the wrong place at the wrong time. In addition, this Tucson pedestrian accident will now become part of the overall statistics regarding Arizona pedestrian accidents. Every year, more than 1,500 such accidents take place, leading to more than 1,400 injuries and to more than 10 fatalities every month.
Arizona Personal Injury Lawyers
It’s too early to know whether the police investigation will lead to criminal charges. Regardless, it’s still possible for the woman who was injured to file an Arizona personal injury lawsuit against the driver who caused the crash. If such a lawsuit is filed and is successful, it could lead to an award of damages that compensate her for her medical costs, lost income and pain and suffering.

Although my accident was fortunately not a major one, The Phillips Law Group AZ treated it as such. Their staff, specifically Mr Juan Roque was very professional, courteous and most importantly very informative. Mr Roque's attentive service was phenomenal and I highly recommend this firm!
My Attorney Sean Davis and his paralegal Hannah Dustin worked on my case. They listened to the problems that I was having with my case and they both got right to work. First they found me a doctor that actually listened to my problems from my car accident and worked quickly to form a plan that was comfortable for me and the doctor. The doctor was the best and after a couple of procedures the pain in my neck was gone. Behind the scenes Sean and Hannah were working hard to get my case settled with the insurance company. They kept in contact with me on all aspects of my case. They settled my case much faster than I expected and for more than I was expecting. If you want two real professional legal people to work on your case, I would highly recommend Sean and Hannah to you. I cannot say enough nice things about these two. Thank you so much, Rickey Hart .
Sophia H is very helpful.
Kathy Hudson and Donato Giovanatto. Continues to go above and beyond the call of duty. Reaching out to the insurance company about the damage to the vehicle. Forcing them to take responsibility.
Jon Jamieson was amazing to work with . He came through with all of his promises.
I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
