Pedestrians have a legal obligation to obey traffic laws and remain attentive to surrounding traffic conditions. However, drivers owe a legal duty to pedestrians to drive in a safe and careful manner. Failing to pay attention to road conditions, driver distractions, speeding, or disobeying traffic laws often result in an auto accident with a pedestrian, and the impact can be disastrous.
When a pedestrian is struck by a car or truck, the insurance companies are going to be working from the start to minimize the driver’s responsibility and place the blame on the pedestrian. As a personal injury attorney in Missouri, David W. Ransin produces results for his clients, as he understands the strategies the insurance companies use to reduce the claim. He is able to thwart these tactics by confronting insurance companies with solid facts and knowledgeable expert witnesses.
David W. Ransin is a trial attorney first and foremost, which means he begins building evidentiary support for a victim’s case from the very beginning. Most attorneys try to settle the case with the insurance companies without bothering to do an independent investigation, leaving the client with little to no leverage for settlement.
