Failure to Yield the Right of Way, Failure to Notice Pedestrians
Pedestrians and bicyclists have a right to the roadway, but all too often car and truck drivers either don't notice them or fail to yield the right of way. The results are pedestrian and bicycle accidents with serious injuries.

When serious injuries are caused by someone else's negligence, the injured person has the right to pursue compensation. At Gray, Ritter & Graham in St. Louis, our personal injury attorneys represent the rights of pedestrians and bicycle riders who have been injured in traffic accidents.
- Car drivers have the duty to yield the right of way to pedestrians in marked intersections. When they do not, the weight of a car hitting an unprotected person can cause life-changing injuries or wrongful death.
- Crosswalk pedestrian accidents often happen because the driver is focused on making a turn rather than looking for pedestrians.
- Sadly, some drivers do not recognize the right of a bicycle or pedestrian to be on the road. An automobile driver's failure to yield can result in serious injuries.
- Our law firm will send an investigator to the scene to document the evidence, talk to witnesses, and reconstruct the accident to determine what happened and why.
