Deadly Illinois Pedestrian Crashes
All drivers have a responsibility to look out for pedestrians on the road. Sadly, pedestrian crashes remain a significant public safety concern in Illinois. Drivers often fail to notice pedestrians on the road, causing devastating accidents.
In just 2010, nearly 4,280 pedestrians were killed in car accidents nationwide. That comes out to one pedestrian fatality nearly every two hours. Surviving family members may be able to recover lost compensation with the help of an Illinois wrongful death attorney.
