Lawyers for Joggers and Walkers Injured By Drivers in Winnebago County

Pedestrian accidents are all too common on our city streets.

These types of accidents are most common in major metro areas such as Chicago, but they also occur in Rockford and other towns throughout the state. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury in a pedestrian accident, you may have the right to compensation.

Pedestrian Accidents in Illinois

When a pedestrian is struck by a car, truck, or even a motorcycle, the results can be disastrous. This is especially true if the vehicle is traveling at a high speed at impact. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports that almost half of all crashes that result in pedestrian deaths are alcohol-related. In addition, those at the greatest risk of injury from pedestrian accidents are seniors (age 65 or older) and children under the age of 15.

Injuries from pedestrian accidents can be catastrophic and life-threatening. Some of the most common include:

Illinois has strict laws designed to protect pedestrians at crosswalks and other places where they are susceptible to accidents and injuries. Unfortunately, many drivers ignore these laws and do not exercise due care to avoid colliding with a pedestrian. When this occurs, the injured pedestrian is entitled to damages.
