Pedestrian Accidents in Chicago
Pedestrians are some of the most vulnerable travelers on Chicago roadways. Cook County is the site of a majority of deadly pedestrian accidents in Illinois. In 2013, 53 of the state’s 125 pedestrian deaths took place in Cook County.
When a pedestrian is involved in a crash with a motor vehicle, the pedestrian always loses. The resulting injuries are often life-threatening. Injured parties should consult with a qualified Chicago personal injury lawyer to obtain deserved compensation.
