- 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.

I would like to thank Vanessa Rodriguez for helping me with my case because I was in total shock about the accident. She had listened to all my concerns and had answered every question I had . She was great !!!
Phillips law group has an amazing staff and i recommend them to everyone.
Working at Phillips Law Group has been great the 1st few years in I noticed how well organized and run this Firm was from Intake to Settlement the Client has the expertise of a staff member uniquely qualified for the particular stage of each Clients claim and all other Law firms try to emulate what we do here but none quite get it right because they lack one major component “Compassion”. We are a FAMILY not just a group of people/employees. We care deeply about each other and our clients’ we are considerate, compassionate and make sure that all our Clients’ needs are met from beginning to end. That’s because we treat our clients just like we treat each other. Nothing like walking through the office and saying Hello to fellow employees who always seem to be smiling. 16yrs in and it only seems to be getting better.
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.
Great company and awesome service. Thanks Caroline fabos. Kudos to all.
Definitely recommend! Awesome
