Lawyer's for Pedestrian Accidents
Many of the people located in Kansas City (as well as across the nation) are pedestrians. It's not a flamboyant life style, but it's the one that we all live peacefully. That being said, all it takes for your life to take a turn for the worst is one car jumping the curb and up onto the sidewalk you find yourself planted on. If you or even a loved one has been seriously injured because they've been struck by a car; you might have the higher ground on the driver whom hit you.
Pedestrians have the right of way no matter what, a car is much more powerful and dangerous than a person walking down the street is. There are certain times when the pedestrian should in fact not be walking near cars (for example jaywalking) but for the most part pedestrians are looked at as the golden goose of the road. Here at [insert] we stand up for the rights and freedoms of our clients, and that means making sure they receive full compensation for going through such a traumatic experience.
Results of Pedestrian Wrecks
Motorists have to realize that the road is shared with pedestrians. This means that any motor vehicle driving on a road (whether it be a car, truck, motorcycle, etc) should be aware of pedestrians at all times. Although most drivers do a great job of co-existing with pedestrians, some others aren't so keen to the idea. Driving is one of the most distracting things you could do, and if the driver who struck you wasn't aware of your presence, it's completely their fault. Injured pedestrians could suffer from a vast amount of injuries, including:
- Broken legs, arms (bones in general)
- Severe Head Trauma
- Deep cuts, or lacerations/abrasions on the skin/flesh
If a driver neglects to be aware, then they are to be held responsible for the accident. Plain and simple, you shouldn't be driving if you aren't going to pay attention. Our attorney's will go through the details with both parties and build up a case; in the end our only goal is the make sure that you are compensated for the things you've been through.
