Pedestrian Motor Vehicle Accidents

No one needs to tell you that the human body cannot stand up to the mass of a moving car. Still, it might surprise you to learn that over 4,000 pedestrians were killed in traffic crashes in the United States in 2013, and another 70,000 pedestrians were injured. This averages to one crash-related pedestrian death every 2 hours, and a pedestrian injury every 8 minutes. Pedestrians are 1.5 times more likely than passenger vehicle occupants to be killed in a car crash on each trip. Older pedestrians are at especially high risk. Pedestrians ages 65 and older accounted for 19% of all pedestrian deaths and an estimated 11% of all pedestrians injured.

Nearly one in every five children between the ages of 5 and 9 who were killed in traffic crashes was a pedestrian. In a significant number of non-fatal accidents, trauma – notable psychological trauma, or long lasting injury issues can be significant.

I have represented pedestrians injured by negligent drivers throughout the Kansas City area, and across the nation since 2005, providing the representation and legal guidance clients need. Do not allow the insurance company to tell you how to value your injury. Please give me a call.


When I think about lawyers I think about stuffy business suits, jargon that’s over my head, and people that generally try to work over the system. I’ve never had an accident or needed to hire a lawyer before but I was not looking forward to it at all. I just had a worry that I might be taken advantage of. However working with Donovan was great. I felt like I easily received more than twice the settlement amount I would have on my own, even after his fees. I never felt like I was spoken down too. He was always extremely helpful. I always felt like we were on the same team."

Severe Pedestrian Injury
