Causes of Pedestrian Caused Crashes in Missouri

In the State of Missouri, 57,270 pedestrian accidents occurred in 2017 alone. While a portion of these accidents were caused by driver error, a substantial amount of crashes occur because of a pedestrian’s failure to exercise reasonable care for their own safety and use caution around passenger vehicles. The most common causes of pedestrian caused crashes in Missouri include:

  • Failure to use a crosswalk
  • Not waiting for the “walk” signal before crossing at an intersection
  • Crossing a busy interstate
  • Attempting to cross the road without making sure the path is clear
  • Walking into traffic

If a pedestrian commits any of the above acts of negligence, it can be argued that the pedestrian violated Missouri’s laws regarding pedestrians right of way and yielding. Missouri’s revised statute regarding pedestrians states, “pedestrian crossing a roadway at any point other than within a marked crosswalk or within an unmarked crosswalk at an intersection shall yield the right-of-way to all vehicles on the roadway.” (§300.390)

Proving Fault in St. Louis Pedestrian Accident Claims

If you have suffered injuries because of a pedestrian’s negligence, it’s essential to gather evidence of the pedestrian’s carelessness (witness accounts, footage from traffic cameras, police report), seek medical attention (obtain a copy of your medical report that details your injuries from the accident), and hire a Missouri Pedestrian Crash Lawyer to represent your case. After the accident, the other party’s insurance company might try to deny your claim, and attempt to pin the blame on you for the accident by citing acts of negligence, but an experienced lawyer can protect you from the other party, prove the other party’s negligence, and demand compensation for your harm and losses.

Recoverable Damages for Missouri Pedestrian Accident Claims

If you’ve been involved in a pedestrian caused crash in Missouri, you could be entitled to recover damages from the negligent pedestrian. Typically, recoverable damages include medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, property damage, and other expenses caused in the accident. Having a St. Louis Pedestrian Crash Lawyer by your side can ensure that you are claiming an adequate amount of damages and that you are filing a claim within Missouri’s Statute of Limitations for personal injury claims. If a claim is filed beyond this timeframe, victims forfeit all rights to recover compensation.
