Pedestrian Accidents in Kansas City
Helping Victims Get Compensation for their Injuries
While injuries from many types of auto accidents have declined in recent years, those involving pedestrians continue to rise. One cause is a greater number of drivers who are paying more attention to cell phones and dashboard infotainment systems than to pedestrians in crosswalks.

Protecting Your Right to Full Compensation
While the drivers who strike pedestrians are usually apologetic after the accident, their attitude and the attitude of their insurance company can change. Some look for an excuse to shift blame to the pedestrian. To protect your right to full compensation, it's important to contact our lawyers as soon as possible after the accident. We will go to work immediately to collect and preserve evidence of liability.
Some of the most common types of pedestrian accidents happen when the car:
- Makes a right or left turn into a pedestrian in a crosswalk
- Strikes a pedestrian at an intersection where the crosswalk is not marked
- Strikes a pedestrian on a sidewalk when turning in or out of a driveway
You should not discuss the accident with the insurance company of the driver, as anything you say can be twisted around to mean something you never intended. Our lawyers will deal with the legal and financial issues so you can concentrate on getting your life and health back.
We will work hard to recover compensation to cover your medical bills, long-term care, lost wages and other related expenses. In wrongful death cases, we can seek additional damages for funeral expenses, loss of financial support, and loss of having that person in your life.
