It Is Important That You Know Your Rights As A Pedestrian

As gas prices continue to skyrocket, many people opt for walking to reach their destinations. In a city like Chicago, it isn’t uncommon to be trapped in congested lanes and intersections for long periods of time. This poses a great risk for drivers and for pedestrians as well. However, many people erroneously believe that pedestrians always have the right of way and are in the right when it comes to accidents. This is not always true. As a pedestrian in Illinois, you have the right of way if you are in a crosswalk only. Treading the city on foot can put pedestrians at risk of being struck by cars, motorcycles, bicycles, trucks and buses. It is important to understand your rights, both as a pedestrian and driver. If you have suffered injury as a result of a pedestrian accident, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact The Horwitz Law Group for a free consultation: (312) 641-9200.
