Chicago pedestrians face horrible consequences when struck

Distracted drivers are a risk to everyone on Chicago's streets. The streets here are way too busy for a driver to take his or her eyes off the road for even one second. Pedestrians and motorcyclists face especially harrowing effects when a driver opts to drive distracted. We recently discussed this issue in a blog post.

When a pedestrian is struck by a vehicle, they often suffer injuries. These injuries can make living in the Chicagoland area difficult. You might not be able to walk around to get to where you need to go. You might find that you have to rely on cabs and ride sharing to get to your destination. This adds considerable expense to your daily life.

We understand that you might not know what to do. We are here to help you to come up with a plan for seeking compensation so that you can try to recoup some of the money you have spent because of the accident. We evaluate your case from each avenue possible. This can include looking into the impact on your income, the bills that are coming in related to the accident and the supplemental costs you are having to deal with because of the injuries.

Ultimately, your claim for compensation is more than just a way to get some money back. It is a way to remind drivers that the streets of Chicago are much too busy to drive without paying full attention to the road. We will help you every step of the way toward your claim for the compensation you deserve.
