Illinois Pedestrian Crashes
Pedestrians are a great disadvantage when involved in a crash with a motor vehicle. Unlike vehicle occupants, there is little protecting pedestrians from the full impact of a crash. Unfortunately, many pedestrians suffer fatal injuries in the aftermath of a crash.
In 2010, 4,280 pedestrians were killed in car crashes across the United States. Tens of thousands more were severely injured. In some cases, surviving family members may be able to recover financial compensation after the loss of a loved one.
