Seeking Compensation for Pedestrian Accident Victims
You can be walking innocently down the street and your life will change instantly. Pedestrian injuries can be caused by cars, trucks, motorcycles, bicycles and even joggers.
Illinois Pedestrian Accident Attorneys
Pedestrian accidents often result in serious and even life-threatening injuries, because the impact of a motor vehicle to an individual's body is much greater. Our firm has significant experience in handling pedestrian accident claims, including representation for injured construction workers in pedestrian claims.
We will investigate the impact of the collision, the effect of the injury on your lifestyle and ability to work, and pinpoint who is liable for the accident. Our firm can work with accident re--constructionists and other resources in order to build your claim so that you can receive the maximum amount of compensation possible.
The Importance of Crosswalks
As your attorney we seek to learn if the accident occurred within a crosswalk or outside the crosswalk, because the law is strongly in your favor when you are in the crosswalk. The problem is, after you are struck by the car, you probably are no longer in the crosswalk. Our investigation places you exactly where you were at the moment of impact.
Minors 'Darting Out' Into Traffic
Very often, insurance companies seek to characterize children who are struck by cars as "darting out" between cars. If they can sell the story that the child ran out suddenly into the street, the likelihood of driver negligence diminishes. To hear the insurance companies, you would think "darting out" is the only way children cross streets.
Peoria Bicycle Accident Attorneys
Generally, we find that bicyclists know the laws and obey them, while motorists don't know the laws as well. They are required by law to share the road with bicyclists equally. Unfortunately, they don't always do that.
