Elk Grove Village Pedestrian Accident Attorneys

Lawyers of Victims Hit by Cars While Walking in Elk Grove Village and Bensenville

When the city of Chicago is portrayed on television and in the movies, you often see local landmarks featured prominently, such as Navy Pier and Wrigley Field, along with more general depictions of the city's skyline, fleets of taxicabs, and sidewalks full of pedestrians. For many who live in the Chicago metropolitan area, walking is simply part of everyday life, as they must get to work from L stations, bus stops, and parking garages and back again. Suburban residents are also likely to walk, jog, or run for recreation and exercise.

With the number of people walking around the city and its surrounding areas, the occasional accident is unfortunately inevitable, and an accident that involves a pedestrian is often extremely serious and possibly deadly. At Kaiser Hafezi Law, we understand the challenges you are likely facing if you have been hit by a car, and our skilled personal injury attorneys are equipped to help you seek full compensation for your injuries.

Cook County Lawyers for Injured Pedestrians

Every year, traffic accidents are the cause of hundreds of pedestrian injuries and dozens of deaths throughout the region. Sadly, most pedestrian accidents are entirely preventable because they are caused by carelessness or negligence. When a pedestrian is injured by a driver who was negligent, the injured victim has a right to pursue compensation for his or her medical expenses, lost wages, and much more.

The lawyers at Kaiser Hafezi Law have more than 100 years of combined experience in the practice of personal injury law. We realize that accidents involving pedestrians can happen in a number of different ways, many of which are related to a driver's reckless or negligent behavior. In some situations, a driver may be distracted by a cell phone or by texting, while in other cases, the driver may be driving drunk or under the influence of drugs. A driver could even just be simply unaware of his or her surroundings and fail to realize that a traffic light had turned red.

Building a Case for Compensation

The path to recovering compensation after you are injured as a pedestrian in an accident begins with a comprehensive review of the circumstances of the situation. Our lawyers will examine the scene, witness statements, police reports, insurance claims, and any other available details to determine what happened and which party or parties could share in the liability for the accident. In addition, we will sit down with you and discuss your injuries, how they are impacting your life and your prognosis for recovery.

Once we have accumulated all of the relevant information, we will start the negotiation process with any involved insurance companies. Our lawyers are well aware that insurance carriers often attempt to avoid or minimize their exposure by disputing the severity of your injuries or by trying to blame you for causing the accident. At Kaiser Hafezi Law, we will not be bullied or tricked into backing down. Instead, we will aggressively advocate on your behalf until you get the full justice that you deserve. We are even prepared to litigate your case at trial, if necessary, to get you the compensation to which the law says you are entitled.
