This morning, traffic backed up on US 67 as police and investigators reconstructed a pedestrian accident. Tragically, a young man in his 20’s was struck by a car in Florissant, MO just before the morning rush hour traffic. The incident occurred just south of Washington Avenue on Lindbergh Blvd. The pedestrian was taken to the hospital where his condition remains serious. The driver of the vehicle that hit the young man stayed on the scene and is cooperating with police. Police had to shut down the northbound lanes of US 67, diverting traffic for hours. The accident is still under investigation, and it is unclear if charges will be filed.
Thousands of pedestrians are injured on the streets of St. Louis every year. Suffering an injury in a pedestrian accident is one of the worst experiences a person can go through. Healing from serious injuries can not only be painful, but it can be scary and stressful. Many times, victims are not able to focus on recovery because they are faced with the financial burden of hospital bills and loss of wages. You know you deserve compensation for the damages you suffered, but dealing with the insurance company can be confusing, especially as they pressure you to sign away your rights to settle fast for little compensation.
