Pedestrian Accidents Should Be Taken Very Seriously

Pedestrians aka People who walk on foot vs driving are often the most susceptible to negligent drivers, particularly in large cities, like Chicago or New York that have a higher volume of vehicular as well as foot traffic. Under Illinois law, pedestrians don’t have the right of way unless they happen to be in a crosswalk. In the event that you or someone you know has suffered a serious pedestrian accident, you will need to know your rights & discuss with a law firm you can trust. At The Horwitz Law Group, our Chicago pedestrian accident attorneys provide exceptional legal support to preserve the financial well-being of our legal clients.

You could be eligible for significant compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost salary, as well as additional financial or personal losses. We will protect your rights.

As a pedestrian you risk injuries from car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, bike accidents, as well as train & mass transit accidents. Pedestrians involved in accidents will often sustain serious injuries, including traumatic injury to the brain, spinal cord injury, even wrongful death. We provide you with experienced advocacy to make sure that our clients are financially secure after an incident.

We are experienced in pedestrian accidents and crosswalk injury due to:

  • Poor property maintenance in apartments, condos, homes, etc…
  • Negligent delivery drivers
  • Improper signs or misleading signs
  • Sidewalk or parking defects
  • Negligent drivers or impaired drivers
  • Roadway garbage or debris

Based on the cause of the accident, a pedestrian may be capable of gaining the monetary and medical damages from whoever was at fault during a negligent driver, a company entity or an accident due to property defect. The Horwitz Law Group will initiate an immediate investigation on your behalf to determine everyone responsible for the accident. Our primary lawyer will contact witnesses, work with experts when necessary, & take every necessary course of action to get evidence for your claim. We are ready to take any case to the court to make certain our clients retrieve the compensation they are entitled to obtain.
