Lake County Pedestrian Accident Attorney

Lake County Pedestrian Accident Attorney

Lawyers for Hit-By-Car Injuries in Waukegan and Wheaton

At the law offices of Salvi & Maher, L.L.C., our lawyers represent clients throughout Northern Illinois 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 wrongful death.

Pedestrian accidents often involve scenarios that many of us know all too well:

  • A car speeding through a neighborhood where children are playing.
  • An aggressive driver racing through an intersection just as a pedestrian begins to cross.
  • A distracted driver clipping a jogger or biker.
  • Drivers rushing to find a parking space in a busy parking lot.
  • Crowded downtown 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. When such accidents occur, victims deserve the opportunity to seek compensation for their injuries

Holding Negligent Drivers Responsible in Gurnee and North Chicago

If a pedestrian is injured due to the negligence of a driver, the injured 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 are entirely preventable.

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 30 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.
