Most pedestrian accidents in St. Louis are often caused by distracted or drunk driving and lead to serious injuries. A pedestrian accident lawyer can help prove that the negligent driver was at fault for the injuries and build a strong claim to support your case.

  • Negligence: Drivers may be found negligent if they failed to obey traffic laws. This includes failure to follow speed limits, stop lights or signs, texting and driving, and driving under the influence. For example, a driver may be found negligent in a pedestrian accident case if the driver ran a red light, resulting in a collision with the pedestrian.
  • Fault: The driver must be found at fault for the injuries, meaning that the pedestrian accident must have caused the injuries or aggravated pre existing injuries or underlying conditions. For example, after the driver ran the red light and hit the pedestrian, the pedestrian suffered injuries including broken bones, multiple fractures, and contusions.

If you or a loved one was injured in a pedestrian accident in St. Louis, MO, or surrounding areas, you may be eligible to seek compensation. Our lawyers can help prove driver negligence and build a strong claim and recover compensation for the following:

  • Medical bills: Often injured pedestrians require medical care such as surgery, emergency care, and rehabilitative therapy. Due to broken bones, traumatic brain injury, or lacerations, ongoing medical treatment and therapy may be necessary. No matter the degree of injuries (minor or severe), the St. Louis pedestrian accident attorneys at Brown & Crouppen Law Firm can help you recover the compensation you deserve.
  • Lost income: In some cases, pedestrian injuries cause victims to be unable to work.
  • Non-economic damages: Intangible damages such as pain and suffering or emotional distress may be awarded.
  • Punitive damages:  In some rare pedestrian accident cases, additional compensation may be awarded by a Missouri court to punish the negligent party. This may occur if the negligent driver’s behavior is found to be egregiously insidious.
  • Property damages: If any personal property was damaged due to the pedestrian accident, our attorney can help you recover compensation for property damage.
  • Pedestrian fatalities: In some accidents, pedestrian injuries may be fatal and lead to the loss of a spouse, family member, or friend. At Brown & Crouppen, our lawyers are prepared to file a wrongful death claim to recover compensation for surviving family members.

Common pedestrian accident injuries include broken bones, lacerations, and bone fractures. No matter what injuries resulted from the accident, a St. Louis pedestrian accident lawyer at Brown & Crouppen Law Firm can help you recover compensation for damages.

The Missouri statute of limitations for personal injury states that individuals have 5 years from the date of the accident or the date that the injuries were discovered to file a lawsuit. Those who wait longer are extremely likely to have their claim or case dismissed.

Due to Missouri laws and other legal considerations, getting help from a pedestrian accident attorney early on in a case can provide many advantages including the collection of evidence, witness statements, legal documentation, and ultimately filing a successful personal injury claim.

Pedestrians may be found negligent and at fault in some cases. For example, a pedestrian may cross a street unlawfully or without regard for approaching traffic (also known as jaywalking) and may be held at fault or partially at fault for the accident.

At Brown & Crouppen, the average pedestrian accident settlement is worth $53,510.12. This includes pedestrian accidents in St. Louis and surrounding areas (including other states). The average settlement amount also includes accidents where only minor injuries occurred. Ultimately, the compensation paid from a pedestrian accident claim is highly dependent on the damages incurred as a result of the accident..

Most pedestrian accident cases settle within 6 to 12 months after medical treatment is complete. However, cases that involve more sever injuries can take longer.
