Lawrence Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

Topeka Kansas Injury Lawyers


    A walk to work or simply crossing the street should not result in harm due to the negligent actions of another person. When such a tragedy occurs, a Lawrence pedestrian accident lawyer gets to work fighting for justice and compensation.

    A pedestrian accident is costly for victims in terms of medical expenses and the potential loss of a career. Kansas law allows victims to pursue a personal injury claim, wrongful death claim, or lawsuit. A Lawrence pedestrian accident lawyer understands state civil laws and can protect your best interests.

    Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents

    A variety of factors contribute to victim damages.

    Pedestrians have rights that, sadly, too many drivers ignore. Careless driver behavior can forever impact a pedestrian’s life in a second.

    Among the many common causes of pedestrian accidents are such reckless actions as:

    • Texting
    • Impaired driving
    • Running red lights
    • Speeding.

    The popularity of sports utility vehicles (SUVs) correlates to more significant pedestrian injuries. The high profile presents a great danger to the human body. Accident victims generally face extensive medical procedures, treatments, and expenses.

    While dangerous drivers are a leading cause of pedestrian accidents, other factors may involve negligence. The following lists are examples of factors other than motor vehicles in Kansas pedestrian accidents:

    • Faulty crosswalk signals
    • Defective sidewalks
    • Other pedestrians who may push or crowd victims.

    Some pedestrian accident cases may involve more than one liable party. A Lawrence pedestrian accident lawyer can review all contributing factors and identify those liable for your harm.

    A pedestrian accident involves more than just getting knocked off your feet. It turns your world upside down in an instant. If you suffered severe injuries or lost a close loved one due to a dangerous driver or faulty road design, contact The Palmer Group today.

    How We Help

    We make the legal process as easy and as fast as possible.

    As personal injury and wrongful death attorneys, we know Kansas civil laws and procedures. We know where and how to start pursuing compensation.

    Our pedestrian accident attorneys understand the following:

    • What evidence matters and how to gather it
    • How to prove the evidence constitutes negligence
    • How to negotiate with insurance companies
    • How to succeed in court.

    Victims who suffer catastrophic injuries or the loss of a close loved one generally want swift justice and fast compensation. At The Palmer Group, we work to resolve your case as promptly as possible. However, we do not settle for less than you deserve.

    Insurance companies do not put your interests first. Rather, they protect their bottom line by offering the least amount possible. Extensive injuries place you at risk for accepting a settlement, thinking it is a fair amount. If an insurance adjuster for the responsible party approaches you, take a deep breath. Hire a member of The Palmer Group and refer the adjuster to your attorney. This not only takes the burden off your shoulders but also protects you from accepting an unfair settlement offer.

    Pedestrian accidents are on the rise. If a dangerous driver is responsible for your traumatic life changes, seek help from a qualified Lawrence pedestrian accident lawyer today.


    Pedestrian Accident FAQs

    A pedestrian accident lawyer answers frequently asked questions about the civil process.

    What is the Kansas statute of limitations for a pedestrian accident?

    The statute of limitations is a state law that allows victims two years to pursue a civil lawsuit. Victims who fail to file within the deadline relinquish their claims and lose the chance for possible compensation.

    What is the difference between economic and non-economic damages?

    Economic damages include those that are easily defined, such as medical bills. The costs are direct and specific to services and aid rendered. Non-economic damages generally do not have a defined number and include such factors as emotional damages.

    What types of evidence help prove another driver was negligent?

    Police reports, accident scene photographs or videos, and eyewitness accounts are a few examples of helpful evidence. It is vital that you share all the information you have with your attorney as soon as possible.

    Are there legal options for fatal pedestrian accidents?

    You may qualify for a wrongful death claim or lawsuit if your loved one died due to negligence.  A free case consultation with a Lawrence wrongful death attorney helps families learn more about their legal options.
