St. Louis Pedestrian Accident Lawyer
Protecting Your Rights in Missouri Injury Cases
Pedestrians usually sustain the worst injuries when involved in traffic accidents. These individuals—often senior citizens or children—have little protection when being struck by a vehicle. Traumatic and debilitating injuries can occur even when the vehicle is traveling at slower speeds. Injuries can range from broken bones, soft tissue damage, and internal injuries to traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries.
At The Law Offices of Justin L. Mason, LLC, we fight diligently for pedestrians injured due to the wrongdoing of motorists and commercial drivers. Our firm is dedicated to ensuring that accident victims secure the financial compensation necessary for all injury-related expenses, from medical costs to pain and suffering, lost wages or income, and more.

Pedestrian Accident Cases
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), approximately 76,000 pedestrians sustain injuries and about 5,000 lose their lives in traffic accidents annually.
These accidents occur more frequently in areas such as:
- Metropolitan areas where motor vehicle and pedestrian traffic is denser
- Nighttime driving situations where visibility is poor
- Non-intersection areas such as sidewalks, shoulders, and bike paths
One major contribution to pedestrian fatalities is alcohol consumption. Other contributing factors include distracted driving behaviors such as cell phone usage or texting. These types of behavior on the part of drivers generally constitute negligence, which can make them liable for injuries and fatalities.
