Pedestrian, Bicycle and Dog Bite Accident Lawyer in Downer's Grove, IL
Were You or a Loved One Struck by a Vehicle that Was Driving Recklessly?
Children walking to school, elderly people attempting to cross a busy street, cyclists struck by reckless and distracted drivers – pedestrian accidents often cause injury to those who are most vulnerable and innocent.
Pedestrian and bicycle injuries can range from mild to severe and life-threatening, which typically depends on how fast the car was traveling. Leg injuries, such as torn cartilage and tendons, broken bones, or kneecap and femur fractures, are the most common injuries resulting from pedestrian accidents. Often, if a victim was struck hard enough to be thrown in the air, resulting injuries can be more severe and include brain damage, herniated discs, or lacerated internal organs.
We handle accidents caused by truck or car drivers who were negligent in any of the following ways:
- Ignoring a stop light or traffic signal
- Failing to stop at a school bus when arm was extended
- Failing to look both ways when turning onto a crosswalk
- Failing to yield the right of way
- Speeding or driving recklessly
- Operating a vehicle while intoxicated
If you’ve been the victim of a personal injury due to a negligent driver while on foot or riding a bicycle, you deserve full and fair compensation for your injury and losses. We can help ensure you are treated fairly and properly by the insurance company and that your physical recovery and treatment is maximized by receiving the compensation you deserve.
If You’ve Been Attacked by an Animal or Suffered a Dog Bite in Illinois, You Could Be Owned Compensation
On top of being a painful and frightening experience, animal attacks and dog bites can cause scarring, permanent disfigurement, and even life-threatening injuries. In the United States alone, hundred of thousands of people are bitten by dogs or other animals each year – and a majority of these victims are children.
Children can be permanently scarred, both physically and emotionally, as the result of a dog bite. Even if no serious physical damage occurred, the lifelong psychological trauma resulting from a fear of dogs can cause a lifetime of pain.
