Lake County Fatal Pedestrian Accident Attorney
In 2011, more than 100 pedestrians were killed in accidents involving motor vehicles throughout the state according to the Illinois Department of Transportation. This loss of life is all the more tragic because the accidents often could have been prevented or avoided by the driver. Negligent drivers can be held accountable for the injuries they cause and the lives they take through a wrongful death action. These types of claims can be brought by close family members to help cover the loss of income, funeral expenses, medical expenses prior to death as well as the loss of companionship.
