Pedestrian Accident Lawyer in Kansas City

Protecting the Rights of Victims

An accident to a pedestrian can in one moment wholly change a person's life. Commonly, these types of accidents involve a vehicle hitting a child in a school zone, running into a pedestrian at a crosswalk or backing into an unsuspecting person in a parking lot. There are two factors that are frequently present in a pedestrian accident.

One is that the pedestrian is violently run into resulting in a catastrophic injury. The second is that the pedestrian is many times accused of being at fault. A skilled Kansas City personal injury attorney at our firm can work to see that your rights are protected and towards you receiving proper compensation for the injuries you have suffered.

Common Injuries Related to a Pedestrian Accident

A person who has been the victim of a pedestrian accident can receive injuries to the head and spinal cord, broken bones, severe contusions and lacerations, torn ligaments and others injuries. Violent incidents as seen in some hit and run accidents can result in a wrongful death. Hospital and medical bills can mount quickly.

Your ability to carry on your day-to-day activities may be affected and you may not be able to earn income for a period of time. At Meyerkord, Russell & Hergott, we have the experience and desire necessary to successfully prevail on behalf of our clients who have been involved in pedestrian accidents.

Battling the Insurance Companies

It is not a surprise that insurance companies will often seek to blame the pedestrian for the accident. If the pedestrian is at fault, then the insurance company will not have to pay for their pain and suffering. Investigation can reveal that the negligent driver was speeding or that they were reckless. In today's world, many drivers operate their vehicles while being distracted, talking on their cells phones or texting. Drivers make turns or backup without looking, resulting in a pedestrian accident.

When properly searched for and investigated, evidence can frequently be found that shows the pedestrian was, indeed, the victim in the accident. Part of our service to clients is to ensure that complete compensation is sought. This means looking at the full extent of your injuries, including emotional impact, and how they affect your life both now and into the future.
