Chicago Pedestrian Car Accident Attorneys

Pedestrians are often the most vulnerable to negligent drivers, especially in big cities, like Chicago, that have a high volume of vehicular as well as foot traffic. Under Illinois law, pedestrians DO NOT have the right of way unless they are in a crosswalk. If you or someone you love has suffered a serious pedestrian accident, it is important to know your rights and work with a law firm you can trust. At The Horwitz Law Group, our Chicago pedestrian accident lawyers provide exceptional legal advocacy to preserve the financial well-being of our clients.

Chicago Pedestrian Accidents Commonly Occur in High Traffic Areas.

According to Illinois crosswalk laws, pedestrians must yield to all upcoming traffic and only have the right of way at marked crosswalks. If you’ve been injured in a pedestrian accident, call a trustworthy law firm to see whether you are entitled to compensation for various financial losses. At The Horwitz Law Group, our Chicago pedestrian accident lawyers provide exceptional legal advocacy to preserve the financial well-being of our clients. 

As a pedestrian, you risk injury from car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, even train and mass transit accidents. Pedestrians involved in accidents will often sustain serious injuries, including traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, even wrongful death. We offer experienced advocacy to ensure that our clients are financially secure after an accident.

We are experienced in pedestrian accidents and crosswalk injury caused by:
  • Negligent drivers

Trial Advocates Focused on Your Rights and Your Recovery

Depending on the cause of the accident, a pedestrian may be able to recover damages from those responsible in a negligent driver, a corporate entity or a property defect accident. We will begin an immediate investigation in your case to identify all parties responsible for the accident. Our primary attorney will contact witnesses, work with experts when necessary, and take every necessary course of action to uncover evidence for your claim. We are prepared to take any case to court to ensure that our clients recover the compensation they are entitled to receive.
