When Tragic Pedestrian Accidents Occur, We Can Help
Car and truck accidents involving pedestrians can result in severe injuries and fatalities. Pedestrians have virtually no protection from the force of a large vehicle hurtling toward them. Even collisions at relatively low speeds can still result in severe injuries such as brain damage or back and spinal cord injuries.
Dealing with the medical and emotional aftermath of a pedestrian accident is difficult enough. You and your loved ones should not also have to tackle the complex insurance and legal issues. At the personal injury law firm of Kujawski & Associates LLC, we can help you get the coverage and financial recovery you deserve.
Why Do Pedestrian Accidents Occur?
In Illinois, vehicles must stop and yield to pedestrians in crosswalks.* However, many pedestrian accidents occur in crosswalks.
Even if you were legally crossing the street, the other driver may not have been paying attention. Distracted driving is a common culprit, particularly when drivers are talking on cellphones or texting while driving. Drunk drivers also cause a large number of pedestrian accidents.
Sadly, children are often the victims of pedestrian accidents. They may be playing in the street or darting out unexpectedly. Because of their small size, the driver might not react in time to avoid a tragic accident.
