According to a recent study published in the journal Injury Prevention, the number of pedestrians who are seriously injured while wearing headphones has dramatically increased over the past few years. Pedestrians who are listening to their MP3 players or talking on their phones may be distracted from the traffic around them and unable to hear the warnings of horns or warning shouts.

Injuries may occur not only for the distracted pedestrians in Kansas City but also for the motorists and pedestrians around them. As a driver swerves to avoid a pedestrian that driver may collide with another vehicle or pedestrian, for example.  If this has happened to you, or to someone you love, then you may be entitled to a legal recovery.
