Lake County Pedestrian Accident Attorney
Lake County Pedestrian Injury Attorneys
Pedestrian accidents involve scenes many of us know all too well:
- A car speeding through a neighborhood where kids are playing
- An aggressive driver racing through a crosswalk just as a pedestrian was about to cross
- A distracted driver clipping a jogger or biker
- Drivers rushing to get a parking space in a busy parking lot
- Crowded downtown Lake County roadways where the distance between pedestrians and cars is mere inches
Even at the lowest possible speeds, a car accident involving a pedestrian has the potential to cause catastrophic injury.
At the law offices of Salvi & Maher, L.L.C., our lawyers represent people across the Northern Illinois Lake County area who have suffered needlessly as a result of a driver's negligence or wrongdoing. As experienced and proven personal injury attorneys, we have the knowledge and resources to take on pedestrian accident cases involving serious injury or even a wrongful death.
Holding Negligent Drivers Responsible
If a pedestrian is injured due to the negligence of a driver, that person has a right to recover compensation for damages associated with what may be very serious injuries. While there are certainly incidents where a driver can do everything right and still cause unintentional harm, such as if a child darts out from behind cars into the street, many pedestrian accidents and injuries could and should have been avoided.
Injuries associated with pedestrian accidents, such as head injuries, traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and spinal cord injuries can create lifelong challenges for the victim and their family. Not only might you require long-term treatment, but you may also be facing a lifetime of diminished capacity, disability and lost wages. In the worst cases, an entire family may suffer the loss of a loved one who has been hit by a car.
It is important to have experienced, effective and dependable attorneys on your side. For more than 25 years, our attorneys have taken on complex car accident cases. Our history includes multi-million dollar financial recoveries for serious injury and fatal accident cases.
A Desire to Help — The Tools to Succeed
Many legal professionals have the desire to help people suffering serious injury, but don't have the experience, knowledge or tools to be effective. Others know how to litigate a pedestrian accident case, but focus only on the most high-profile cases leaving other seriously injured people without the quality of representation they need.
Our firm has both the tools and the desire to help all pedestrian accident victims recover the compensation they need. To find out if we can help you, call 847-662-3303 or contact our office online to schedule a free consultation.
