Pedestrian accidents are on the rise throughout Missouri and can turn your life upside down. These devastating crashes can leave victims unable to work and with catastrophic injuries requiring extensive—or even lifelong—medical and assistive care.
It’s extremely important to investigate all applicable avenues of compensation in a pedestrian accident. Most people believe only the at-fault driver’s insurance is responsible for compensating the injured victim, but that isn’t always true. Often, the driver is driving someone else’s vehicle and therefore the driver’s auto insurance —along with the auto insurance on the vehicle itself— is responsible for compensating the injured victim. The injured victim also may be owed compensation from their own auto insurance coverage or that of a relative who lived in their household. All too often, the at-fault driver is not the only responsible party, so fully investigating all potential sources of compensation can make a huge difference in the final case result.
