Walking or jogging is a recommended form of exercise and is also good for the environment. For
many, it is a method of enjoying the Arizona weather and scenery. However, according to
Arizona statistics, hundreds of pedestrians die in automobile accidents in Arizona each year. A
pedestrian who is hit by an automobile almost always results in a serious injury or even death of
the pedestrian. In most instances, even if the pedestrian is jaywalking, the driver of the
automobile shares a significant portion of the fault.
If you were struck by an automobile while walking or jogging and suffered injuries, you may be
entitled to compensation for your medical bills, pain, and suffering, any lost wages as well as
compensation for any permanent injuries you may have suffered. By law, pedestrians almost
always have the right-of-way and the motorist who disregarded your safety is likely in violation
of Arizona law and liable for those damages he or she has caused you and your family. To find
