Number of pedestrian accidents and personal injury sows concern

Pedestrians in St. Louis and throughout Missouri are in constant danger of being hit by a motor vehicle when they are out. It is not limited to when they cross the street as vehicles can go out of control, head onto the sidewalk and even crash into them when they are in front of their homes. Since pedestrians are unprotected and will bear the full brunt of a crash, there is a major chance of personal injury and death.

Pedestrian suffers serious personal injury after hit-and-run

Drivers and pedestrians in St. Louis and the surrounding areas must share the road and keep a close eye on one another. When people are on the road in any capacity, an accident can happen without warning and there are many reasons why they occur. Regardless of the details of the accident, people can face personal injury and loss of life after an accident. There is significantly higher danger when it is an auto-pedestrian accident. These are made far worse when it is a hit-and-run. Drivers are required by law to stop and check on a person after there has been a pedestrian accident. Knowing what to do after a crash of this type is key to the future.

Pedestrian hit by SUV suffers personal injury and dies

There is no doubt that pedestrians in Saint Louis and throughout Missouri will be safer when they are crossing the street, if they stay in crosswalks and adhere to traffic signals telling them when to go. Unfortunately, that is not a guarantee that people will be shielded from personal injury and death after being hit by a motor vehicle. Getting hit by a car can cause extensive damage and those who have been hurt and the families who have lost a loved one in an auto-pedestrian crash should think about a legal filing for compensation.
