Our client was crossing the street when a driver just before sunset when a driver caused a collision after passing through a stop sign. Even though our client sustained a bone fracture and substantial medical bills, the insurance company refused payment. They argued that the pedestrian was outside the crosswalk and that the car accident was unavoidable due to poor lighting. After retaining our law firm, we were able to conduct a complete investigation, obtain critical evidence, and navigate the case a successful outcome.
Unfortunately, pedestrian injuries in car accidents are all-too common in the Kansas City area and in both Kansas and Missouri. When pedestrians are injured in accident with a car, insurance companies often will refuse to pay and deny liability. This adds even more stress and devastation to cases that usually involve serious injury. Our Kansas City car accident lawyer is experienced in car accident cases that involve pedestrians and can help identify the best strategy to maximize your recovery.
