Missouri boasts some of the best walking tours, trails, and scenic views in our country. Add to that that more and more people are walking and jogging as a way to save money, reduce their carbon footprint and as a means to stay healthy and you can see why walking and jogging as a past time has exploded in the past decade. We have more people out and about than ever before, walking, jogging, window shopping, or just casually strolling. With that uptick in walkers and joggers, however, comes the number of pedestrian accidents that happen annually. In 2015 alone, the most recent data tells us that there were more than 200 people killed in pedestrian related accidents. The personal injury attorneys at the Law Firm of needaninjuryattorneymissouri.com are here to help you through this emotionally and physically challenging time and help you get the kind of compensation that you deserve.
The Law Firm of needaninjuryattorneymissouri.comunderstands that during this time, you have to focus on yourself; your emotional and physical recovery needs to come first. However, there are other unfortunate truths that need to be faced. Bills still need to be paid and sometimes those bills can become insurmountable when you add on unexpected costs of medical bills as well. Pedestrians will always bear the brunt of the more physically devastating injuries in these accidents due to the fact that they rarely, if ever, have any sort of protection against the elements that they are exposed to. Some of the most common injuries that we see most often are:
- Broken bones
- Brain injury
- Loss of limb
In the most tragic of accidents, we see friends and family lose a loved one to these accidents. If you or someone you loved was injured or killed in a pedestrian-auto accident, please know that you don’t have to fight the big insurance companies alone. The Law Firm of needaninjuryattorneymissouri.com is here to fight for you and make sure that you and your family will be compensated for your injuries.
Sadly, most of these accidents could be prevented through very simple measures. These accidents most often occur due to:
- Inattentive drivers who are not aware of their surroundings
- Drivers who are distracted by their phones or other things/people in the car
- Drivers who are speeding or otherwise driving recklessly
- Drivers who are under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol.
Our law firm knows that during this time, you are adjusting to life changing challenges and want you to be able to focus on your recovery. We know how hard this can be and we will be the ones making sure the insurance company does not deny your claims and makes sure that they pay you every single dollar you are owed. Financial futures and insurance adjusters are the last things you need to have on your mind. Let the personal injury attorneys at the Law Firm of needaninjuryattorneymissouri.com take care of that while you take care of your own recovery.
