Phoenix officer injured when motorcycle struck by vehicle

Anyone could be a victim in an automobile accident. Even police officers are possible victims in a collision.

Failing to uphold the standard duty of care required by drivers could result in a serious accident no matter who is driving and what type of vehicle they are traveling in.

Arizona residents are aware that drivers must share the road, and not just with other cars. In addition to vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians also utilize the roads. Depending on the type and location, there may be people traversing near roadways on bike or by foot. That's why drivers should always be aware of their surroundings. Failure to check blind spots, use mirrors, signal turns and reduce speeds when the encounter a pedestrian or cyclist could cause a collision.

It is very common to see pedestrians and cyclists traveling near or on the roadways in Arizona. This is especially true in shopping areas, parking lots, residential streets and downtown areas. When the weather is nice and an individual does not need a vehicle to travel to their destination, pedestrians will frequent the sidewalks and crosswalks. These areas are also shared with vehicles, so it is important the drivers and pedestrians are aware of one another. Failure to do so could lead to a damaging pedestrian accident.

Tragedy could suddenly occur and could affect numerous victims. This is often the case when it comes to an automobile collision. No matter the time of day, when a driver fails to pay attention or drive safely, they could be the cause of a fatal car accident. In some incidents, two or more parties in the incident could have contributed to the crash. Even in these matters, those affected by the crash could still file a civil claim so long as they were not the primary contributors to the incident.
