St. Louis Pedestrian Accident Attorney
Injured in a St. Louis pedestrian accident?
Pedestrians who get hit by motor vehicles generally do not walk away with minor injuries. In fact, the outcome for a person on foot, who gets struck by a vehicle, will usually be extensive - sometimes even causing long-term bodily damage or resulting in death. There are a number of circumstances that can cause a motorist to hit a pedestrian:
- Negligence or carelessness;
- Use of technology impairing the ability to concentrate;
- Not seeing the pedestrian (such as if backing out);
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs;
- Driver distraction; and
- Overly aggressive driving
