St. Louis Pedestrian Accident Lawyer
Experienced Representation in Missouri
Have you or a loved one been hurt in a pedestrian accident? Our St. Louis legal team will work to get you the compensation you deserve.
Pedestrian accidents are some of the most gruesome, life-altering accidents out there. This is largely due to the fact that pedestrians have zero protection when struck by bicyclists, motorcyclists, or, worst of all, motor vehicles.
Fortunately, state law gives pedestrians injured by negligence the right to be compensated for their damages. While a financial recovery won’t make up for what happened, it helps many victims and their families afford to recover physically and mentally. DiPasquale Moore wants to help you win the future you deserve.

Are Pedestrian Accidents Common in St. Louis?
Pedestrian accidents are a problem all throughout the United States. St. Louis is no exception. A large contributor to this problem is that everyone, even drivers, is a pedestrian at some point.
Take a case in which a pedestrian is hit by a car in a parking lot. There is a good chance that the pedestrian was a driver walking back to their car. Still, once in the driver’s seat, many motorists don’t pay attention to pedestrians, especially if they are drunk, impaired, or distracted.
Do I Have a Case?
Negligent actions that often provide grounds for a pedestrian accident claim include:
- Distracted driving
- Passing another vehicle that stopped for a pedestrian
- Passing a pedestrian instead of waiting for them to cross
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Failing to yield the right of way to pedestrians
- Failing to look for pedestrians at crosswalks, in parking lots, etc.
If you suspect or know that another party was at fault for the accident, then you likely have a case. We encourage you to contact our firm as soon as possible. Once we find who is responsible for the accident, we can work to hold them accountable for your damages.
How Much Is a Pedestrian Accident Case Worth?
Accident cases can vary widely in monetary value. The answer lies in the details, as an injured pedestrian can only recover compensation for however much they incurred in damages. A pedestrian who suffered a minor injury will be compensated less than someone who suffered a severe injury. Still, regardless of the nature of your injury, our St. Louis pedestrian accident lawyers will fight to maximize your compensation.
Common Damages in Pedestrian Accident Claims
Pedestrian accident victims often qualify for compensatory damages such as the following:
- Hospital bills, doctor’s visits, and other medical expenses
- Lost wages due to missed time from work
- Reduced future earning potential
- Lost benefits
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of quality of life
No Fees Unless We Win
At DiPasquale Moore, our clients are our number one priority. That’s why our St. Louis legal team advocates for those injured on a contingency fee basis. If we don’t recover compensation for you, then you won’t be billed a dime.
