Evaluating Your Pedestrian Injury Case
To preserve your legal rights, it is important to immediately seek the
advice of a qualified Chicago personal injury attorney. Every pedestrian
accident is subject to a statute of limitations, which places a deadline
on the time you have to file. Before entering into negotiations with an
at-fault driver or an insurance company, you should contact a lawyer experienced
in pedestrian accidents.
Here at Cavanagh Law Group, we understand that pedestrian accidents may
have lasting and devastating consequences. We have been working at the
forefront of Chicago
personal injury law for many years now, and in that time we have
secured over $450 million in damages for our clients.
Whether you have suffered an injury at a crosswalk or in a parking lot,
we offer a superior standard of litigation across the board. If you want
to begin the process of recovering damages for the terrible pedestrian
accident that has occurred, we urge you to contact Cavanagh Law Group
at (844) 515-2223.
Causes of Pedestrian Accidents
While there is no one cause of pedestrian accidents, these collisions do
tend to fall into two categories:
When the fault lies with the pedestrian, it is usually because they've ignored a traffic control, including
walking signals, jaywalking, getting on or off a school bus, or a child
darting into traffic. Accidents such as these are as tragic as they are
deadly, however, it can be nearly impossible to prove any measure of driver error.
When the driver of a motor vehicle is at fault, it is typically because that driver has ignored or disregarded a crosswalk,
ignored a traffic light, failed to yield at an intersection, was distracted
while talking or texting on a cell phone, or simply got behind the wheel
while under the influence.
When you consider mitigating factors, such as densely populated areas,
school zones, and more, it is no wonder more than 5,000 pedestrian fatalities
occur throughout Illinois and the nation each year.
