Pedestrian accidents in St. Louis are often serious and sometimes catastrophic. The devastating results of such an accident can range from leg injuries, such as broken bones (fractures of the femur in the upper leg, the knee cap, tibia and fibula of the lower leg) to a broken hip or fractured pelvis. Pedestrian accidents can also result in internal injuries to the liver, kidney, spleen, or other organs as well as brain damage or spinal cord injuries, which can cause permanent disability or death.
When these accidents occur, it’s important to conduct a careful investigation as to why the accident occurred in the first place. In many instances, multiple factors play a part in the accident.
Pedestrian accidents are often the result of distracted drivers, motorists not obeying the laws when approaching a stopped bus, or children being dropped off at an unsafe or unfamiliar bus stop.
