Pedestrian & Bicycle Accidents

We Handle Bike And Pedestrian Accident Claims Throughout Kansas And Missouri

Fighting for a fair insurance settlement for a bike or pedestrian accident injury or wrongful death claim, or winning a lawsuit in court is one of the trickiest types of personal injury cases. Too often, witnesses are difficult to find and the evidence at the scene of the accident is scant or quickly lost. In addition, it is often difficult to determine who is responsible for damages, if the facts don't point to clear liability. Properly preparing this type of case to win requires in-depth investigation and careful preparation of the facts.

We Look Beyond The Driver's Insurance Policy

At the Law Offices of Ankerholz and Smith, in Overland Park, we look beyond the driver's insurance policy. We find every available means of compensation for the injured parties. This may include the city responsible for marking crosswalks and intersections, the property owner responsible for sidewalk maintenance, and even the manufacturer of a defective product that may have resulted in the accident and injuries or death. In the event of a child's injury in the neighborhood, it may even be possible to file against the homeowners insurance policy.

In a catastrophic injury claim involving a child whose legs were severed in an accident involving a train, our lawyers assisted the family by combining compassion with legal skill. We worked closely with the family to find resources they would need in order to provide full comfort and care for their child. By working with independent experts to investigate and prepare the case, we obtained a cash settlement to meet the family's immediate medical costs, in addition to a structured settlement for a lifetime of prosthetic devices and support.
