St. Louis Pedestrian Accident Attorney
Pedestrians Involved in Motor Vehicle Collisions
Perhaps the most vulnerable of all on today's roads are pedestrians. The laws of Missouri and Illinois protect pedestrians from the devastating injuries they can sustain from negligent motor vehicle drivers, and while these laws are helpful in awarding pedestrians with more rights on the road, reckless automobile drivers needlessly injure or kill a great many pedestrians. There are many laws in place to protect pedestrians from drivers.
For instance, drivers are required to give pedestrians the right-of-way when crossing the street in marked crosswalks, or even unmarked crosswalks in many places. While this is a known law and the consequences for breaking it can be dire, both for offender and victim alike, drivers regularly injure or kill pedestrians on our roads in pedestrian accidents. If you or someone you love has been the victim of a pedestrian accident, contact a St. Louis personal injury attorney at our firm as soon as possible to for legal assistance and guidance concerning the accident and the eligibility for monetary compensation.
