Pedestrian Accident

When you get out of your car, walk across a parking lot, or cross the street, the last thing you expect is to be hit by a moving vehicle. You’ve looked to make sure it is safe enough for you to walk, and assume that the motorists around you are paying enough attention to their surroundings to notice where you are walking. However, not all motorists yield to pedestrians and as a result, can cause catastrophic accidents. Rarely are the drivers of motor vehicles injured in a pedestrian accident, and rarely are the injuries that the pedestrian suffers from are minor.

Common injuries that can result from a pedestrian accident include:

  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Open head injuries
  • Closed head injuries
  • Brain injuries
  • Internal organ damage
  • Limb loss
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Road rash/friction burns

Victims of pedestrian accidents often require:

  • Hospitalization
  • Surgery
  • Physical therapy
  • Medication
  • Home care
  • Ongoing medical treatments

As a result, you and your family may be facing extensive medical bills, on top of the emotional and psychological trauma you are experiencing as a result of the accident. At the Injury Lawyers of Illinois, we believe that pedestrians who were victimized in an accident should never have to pay for their own medical expenses and should be fully compensated for the pain and suffering they have to endure.

We have successfully won millions of dollars for our clients who have been involved in pedestrian accidents and would like to do the same for you. Call us today.
