Our Pedestrian Injury Lawyers Offer a Personal Touch
As a boutique law firm, Perez Law Group, PLLC, never relegates you to an automated system or treats you like just another file. You are treated as a person by people who care about your individual struggles and goals.
We start with a hassle-free, obligation-free consultation where we listen, explain your rights, and discuss your options in clear, understandable language. Then, we investigate, gathering evidence of negligence, your injuries, and compensation you deserve. From there, we work on negotiations with an insurer or a liable party. If necessary, we take your case to court.
Those are the broad strokes. Day to day, we:
- Handle calls, emails, letters, and other communication responsibilities
- Keep track of paperwork, deadlines, and filing requirements
- Loop you into any changes, progress, or developments
- Adapt, remain flexible, and brainstorm creative solutions
- Stay available to answer your questions
- Search for ways to maximize your possible compensation
We Fight for the Underdogs
Insurers and liable parties are sometimes shameless in their attempts to avoid paying an injured party. You might even find yourself blamed for your accident. Other tactics include forcing you to jump through unnecessary hoops to access what you deserve, dragging out a claim in the hope you’ll settle out of exhaustion and frustration, or pointing the finger at a third party.
We have seen it all and have experience taking on big insurance companies who are used to getting their way. We can recognize when an insurer is acting in bad faith. Our pedestrian accident lawyers aren’t afraid of your opponent.
Pedestrians Can Suffer Catastrophic Injuries
You bore the brunt of this accident. Collisions of this kind can cause:
- Broken bones
- Bruises and lacerations
- Nerve damage
- Head, neck, and back injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Dental injuries
Moreover, if you were hit by a vehicle, you likely suffered multiple injuries. A broken leg alone could cost over $7,000 to treat according to Healthcare.gov, while a hospital stay could soar into the tens of thousands of dollars. Then you have rehabilitation costs like physical, occupational, and psychological therapy, as well as medical equipment, prescriptions, and even at-home assistance.
Let’s not forget the ancillary costs: paying for parking at your doctor’s office, lost income and changes to your ability to work, or expenses to treat depression or anxiety following the accident. For instance, CNBC reports that major depression could cost you over $10,000 in annual health costs.
The minimum car insurance requirement is $25,000 for bodily injury according to the Arizona Department of Insurance and Financial Institutions. If the driver who hit you had only that coverage, you could reach the limit fast. Insurers may also try to trim down what they owe. For these reasons, don’t hesitate to reach out to a Glendale pedestrian injury lawyer from our firm to get help in understanding your losses and how to get compensation.
What Do You Deserve?
The answer is based on the tally of all your losses, both economic and noneconomic. That means we look at both financial and personal losses. From there, we arrive at a level of compensation that covers:
- Past medical treatment
- Future care and rehabilitation
- Lost income
- Reduced ability to earn
- Pain and suffering
- Reduced enjoyment of life
Insurance adjusters can be very persuasive and make you think what they’re offering is what you deserve. In reality, they could be leaving off crucial damages, like compensation for the loss of a hobby or changes to your mental health. They hope you won’t think of everything. At Perez Law Group, PLLC, we work to ensure they don’t forget anything.
When Pedestrian Injuries Prove Fatal in Glendale
According to recent stats from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one in six people who died in motor vehicle accidents were pedestrians. There simply isn’t enough protection for pedestrians in collisions.
If you lost someone this way, we understand that nothing can adequately compensate you for this loss. However, our wrongful death lawyers can work to get justice and recognition for your loved one through damages. Speaking out can also help make progress toward better, safer roads for pedestrians.
Talk to our team about getting compensation for:
- Funeral services and burial or cremation
- Your loved one’s remaining medical bills
- Lost income they would have earned
- Pain and suffering and emotional distress
- Loss of companionship, support, and guidance
Our Injury Attorneys Identify Who Is Responsible
Arizona allows you to pursue compensation with an insurance claim or lawsuit, but you have to know who to pursue first. Our attorneys can determine if any of the following were the culprit or shared liability for your accident:
- Passenger vehicle drivers
- Truck drivers and trucking companies
- Taxi companies
- Product manufacturers
We Represent Unique Glendale Pedestrian Cases Too
Other negligent behavior can cause injury to pedestrians walking around Glendale. Don’t hesitate to talk to our personal injury lawyers about your accident even if it seems unusual or complicated.
According to U.S. News and World Report, rideshares like Uber and Lyft have caused an increase in accidents at pick-up and drop-off locations, injuring pedestrians. If you were hit by an Uber or Lyft driver who wasn’t paying attention, driving while impaired, or engaging in another negligent behavior, our rideshare accident lawyers can help you pursue compensation.
Slip and Falls
Some pedestrian injuries are from poor infrastructure and maintenance. For instance, uneven sidewalks, poorly maintained roads, and failure to clean up debris could cause you to trip and fall. If this happened to you, our slip and fall lawyers can investigate whether a private property owner or government entity was negligent in maintaining walkways. We can then pursue a claim or lawsuit.
