Experienced Attorneys for Car vs. Pedestrian Accidents

Lee Dempsey and Bob Kingsland are veteran trial lawyers with more than 100 years of combined experience. They have obtained many notable personal injury verdicts and settlements, including cases of pedestrians clipped or run over by motor vehicles at crosswalks, sidewalks, parking lots, and residential streets. We are prepared to counter any claims that our client jaywalked, darted out into traffic or otherwise caused his or her own injury.

We keep the focus on how the driver was negligent and can work to prove that they:

  • Were talking on a cell phone or otherwise distracted
  • Were speeding or reckless driving
  • Ran a stop sign or stoplight
  • Turned without yielding
  • Pulled out or backed up without looking

If fault is disputed, we investigate quickly to preserve evidence such as impact dents on the vehicle, skid marks, and broken glass. It is also important to talk to witnesses before their memory fades and before the defense gets to them.

Maximizing the Compensation for Serious Injuries

A pedestrian is completely vulnerable and suffers terrible injuries from the impact with the car or from going airborne and landing hard on the street. We have secured damages for brain injury and spinal cord injury, as well as broken bones, torn ligaments, facial injuries, and severe lacerations. We have also won wrongful death damages for fatal pedestrian accidents.

We work closely with medical consultants, life care planners, economists, and other professionals to determine the extent of the injury and the long-term needs of our clients. Armed with a solid case, we can hold out for a settlement for full damages or take the case to trial.

Our pedestrian injury attorneys in Kansas City fight insurance companies for the full value of pedestrian injury claims. Call toll-free at (816) 484-3776 for a free case evaluation.
