"You gave me back a sense of hope and a vision of goodness, something I'd lost with the death of my husband."
Pedestrians have nothing to protect them against injuries, which is why vehicle-pedestrian crashes often result in life-altering harm or wrongful death.
Often, these tragedies and other accidents involving pedestrians could have been prevented if not for the negligence of others.

People who traverse city sidewalks, intersections, and streets by foot face many risks, as well as the potential for serious injuries. With no protection, even small “minor” acts of negligence result in life-altering consequences.
In Kentucky and the U.S., victims of preventable injuries have the right to take legal action against those at fault for their accidents. When you pursue a personal injury claim or wrongful death lawsuit, however, you have the burden of proving someone else was actually at fault, and that they should be held financially responsible for the losses you suffered.
While every case is different, it may be that someone should be held accountable for your accident. Examples of at-fault parties in pedestrian cases include:
At KCB, we help clients prove fault and liability, a task that requires extensive resources, meticulous investigation, and collaboration with experts. By leveraging our resources, victims can position themselves for the positive outcomes they need.
In addition to proving a Defendant’s negligence as the cause of a preventable accident, victims in personal injury and wrongful death cases will need to show the damages they suffered as a result.
By law, personal injury Plaintiffs are entitled to a financial recovery of their economic and non-economic losses, which can include:
Because pedestrians can suffer very serious injuries, it is not uncommon for these cases to involve both past and future damages:
Calculating damages can be a difficult task that requires a careful inventory of a victim’s life and that of their loved ones, and the ability to illustrate how deeply an injury has impacted families – emotionally and financially.
In cases involving serious and permanent injuries, it may also require the use of medical experts, financial experts, and other credible witnesses who can testify about the permanency of injuries, the treatment a disabled victim is likely to require in the future, how much that treatment costs, and the lost income and expenses they will face as years go by.
At KCB, we have access to a nationwide network of investigators and medical experts, and tap into our team’s own experience and resources to help clients pursue the maximum compensation possible.
Following serious accidents and injuries, victims should be focused on repairing their lives. By working with an attorney who has the experience and resources your case requires, you put yourself in a better position to navigate an unfamiliar process, address the legal technicalities of a case, and stand up to powerful insurance companies that work aggressively to pay victims as little as possible.
