Pedestrian injuries may include paralysis, coma or skull fractures, all of which will seriously alter one’s lifestyle and ability to earn a living, possibly resulting in wrongful death. It is critical that you retain the guidance and representation of a top personal injury lawyer before evidence is lost and the memories of witnesses become hazy.
Pedestrians do have rights in both Missouri and Kansas. Unfortunately, many motorists choose to ignore those rights, or simply fail to pay proper attention when distracted or after having too much to drink. Pedestrian-vehicle collisions often occur in crosswalks, the shoulders of a road and even sidewalks.
When Should You Consult A Personal Injury Lawyer?
Pedestrian-vehicle accidents are not always the fault of the motorist. Before you decide to file a lawsuit, you should speak with a lawyer who can help determine if the accident was totally the fault of the driver. If you ran or walked into traffic or failed to use a crosswalk, you may be partially responsible for the collision, which means your compensation may be less than if the collision was totally the motorist’s fault, but you may be entitled to compensation nonetheless.
The sooner you speak with one of our lawyers in Kansas City, the sooner we can help you determine fault, evaluate the full value of your case, collect valuable evidence and pursue the maximum compensation you deserve for past, present, and future losses and damages.
