Have you been injured as a pedestrian in Illinois? Our personal injury attorneys are here to help you.
Walking and jogging have become a favored exercise throughout Illinois. With our extensive parks and walkways and scenic routes, Illinois has a high population of runners. Chicago also boasts an extensive walkway throughout downtown for more casual strollers. Unfortunately, with this hobby becoming more and more popular, there has also been an uptick in the number of pedestrian-auto accidents. This can be particularly devastating in that a person stands very little chance against a motor vehicle. If you or a loved one has been the victim of a pedestrian accident, the personal injury attorneys at the Law Firm of needaninjuryattorneyillinois.com are here to help you.
Pedestrian-auto accidents are not rare incidents. In 2012, over 4,000 people were killed in pedestrian accidents. It is far too often that pedestrians are struck by vehicles that are being driven by motorists who are simply not paying attention. It is an unfortunate truth that in these accidents, the pedestrian will often have far more serious injuries than the motorist. This is because the pedestrian has little or no protection in the event of a collision. The personal injury attorneys at the Law Firm of needaninjuryattorneyillinois.com are here to make sure that you get the financial compensation that you deserve for your time, pain and suffering.
Drivers have the inherent responsibility to be aware of their surroundings. Unfortunately, not all drivers are as aware as they should be. This results in several catastrophic outcomes for the pedestrian. Some of the injuries that might be sustained in a pedestrian-auto accident are:
- Serious scrapes and burns
- Broken bones
- Traumatic brain injuries

The personal injury attorneys at Law Firm of needaninjuryattorneyillinois.com are here to make sure that you have someone in your corner, fighting for you every step of the way. Insurance companies are known to send adjusters out as soon as possible to give you an initial offer. You are by no means obligated to accept this offer because it is usually absurdly low. Insurance adjusters will try to convince you that if you do seek out and retain legal counsel, you will end up with less financial compensation than if you accept their offer. This is NOT true and it is important to keep in mind that insurance companies and their adjusters are not looking out for your best interests.
