As a pedestrian in a crosswalk, you are right to have a reasonable expectation that drivers of cars and trucks will respect your safety and right of way. Unfortunately, innocent pedestrians are injured all too frequently while crossing intersections throughout Kansas and Missouri.
At Holman Schiavone, LLC, we fight for the rights of people who have suffered serious personal injuries in crosswalk accidents. If you have been injured in a pedestrian crosswalk accident, our attorneys will help you obtain compensation for your medical bills, lost wages and other hardships. Pedestrians always have the right of way, and we can get you justice by holding the negligent driver accountable.
Pursuing Your Crosswalk Accident Lawsuit
In general, there is a greater likelihood of success for plaintiffs when a pedestrian accident takes place in a crosswalk. Since the crosswalk is protected space, it is typically easier to demonstrate liability on the part of the driver.
Even so, the opposition may claim the accident was your fault — that you darted into the intersection or crossed against the light. Our attorneys have handled numerous crosswalk accident cases and know how to build a compelling case to obtain maximum compensation for your past, present and future damages and losses, including wrongful death benefits for the families of pedestrian accident victims.
Depending on the circumstances of your case, we may use witness testimony, photographic evidence and testimony from expert witnesses to argue your case. Our goal in every case is to help our clients obtain full and fair compensation for the injuries they have suffered.
