Chicago Pedestrian Accident Attorneys

Pedestrian & Bicycle Accidents

Chicago is continually ranked one of the nation's most walkable cities. And thanks to the efforts of former Mayor Richard M. Daley, our city features mile upon mile of bicycle lanes. Of course, Chicago is also one of the nation's most congested metropolitan areas. When heavy car, truck, and bus traffic mixes with bicycles and pedestrians, you have a high risk vehicle-pedestrian and vehicle-bicycle accidents.

Distracted driving, cell phones, and texting (among pedestrians as well as motorists) are also statistically significant causes of devastating injuries, which occur most frquently for pedestrians and cyclists in crosswalks and intersections.

Pedestrian and cyclists generally suffer more than just bumps and bruises when involved in even minor collisions. Injuries often include:

  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Crushed or Broken Bones
  • Internal Injuries
  • Soft Tissue Damage
  • Spinal Cord Injuries & Paralysis
  • Serious Pavement Burns
  • Knee, Neck & Back Injuries
  • Wrongful Death

Sadly, the most common victims of bicycle and pedestrian accidents are children and young adults. The Centers for Disease Control reports that more than 2400 children are treated in hospital emergency rooms each year after being struck by a vehicle moving in reverse.

If you or a loved one is injured in a pedestrian or bicycle accident, contact us immediately at (312) 443-1488 for a free consultation. Insurance companies are under no obligation to inform you of your rights and may use what your statement to attempt to reduce or deny your claim. Unfortunately, insurers try to cover as little of your claim as possible, often attempting to undervalue your injuries. We can help our clients understand their rights and options and guide them through the compensation process.

The experienced, professional team at Adler & Adler, P.C., aggressively fight for our clients' rights to full compensation for their injuries. We work tirelessly to ensure our clients' rights are upheld and to collect the compensation that each case deserves.

Most cases are successfully negotiated and settled out of court, but we do not hestitate to stand up to insurance company defense teams and take a case a jury trial, if doing so will lead to an optimal financial outcome for our client.

While every case is different, compensation depends on many factors, including the severity of your injuries and recovery time. We work on behalf of our clients to seek maximum compensation for all damages, including:

  • Related Medical Expenses, including hospital and physician bills, prescriptions, physical therapy, and medical equipment
  • Future Medical Care, including anticipated surgeries, long-term care, rehabilitation and other related expenses
  • Lost Wages & Future Loss of Income and/or Earnings Capacity
  • Pain & Suffering
  • Loss of Limbs and Permanent Impairments
  • Loss of a Normal Life
