Kansas City Pedestrian Accident Lawyers
Some of the worst types of accidents are those that involve pedestrians.
Pedestrian accidents may occur for several reasons. Drivers who are distracted
with their cellphones or intoxicated can put pedestrians at risk of being
struck. Roadway changes and poor weather conditions are also contributing
factors that can lead to a pedestrian accident.
Pedestrians have virtually no protection from oncoming vehicles. As a result,
they tend to sustain greater injuries from accidents. These injuries can
have life-altering consequences. If you're suffering from a pedestrian
accident injury, you may be entitled to receive compensation.

Who Is At Fault in a Pedestrian Accident?
Pedestrians have the right of way to cross the street in crosswalks, and
vehicles on the roadways must exercise a standard of care even when pedestrians
cross the street outside of the crosswalk. In many cases, the attorneys
for the defense may try to argue that the pedestrian jaywalked, impeded
the flow of traffic, violated posted traffic signs, or darted into the street.
personal injury attorneys know that since vehicles have the greater capacity for injury,
they must be significantly more careful. If you or a loved one have been
injured as a pedestrian, you must retain an attorney that can analyze
the case on its individual merits and recover damages for your injuries.
