The Dangers Of Vehicle-Pedestrian Collisions

In 2012, nearly 5,000 pedestrians were hit by vehicles in Illinois, according to the Illinois Department of Transportation's Division of Traffic Safety. Over 4,600 of these collisions resulted in injuries, with more than 100 resulting in fatalities.

Pedestrians who are hit by vehicles can suffer serious injuries such as:

  • Broken bones
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries and concussions
  • Lacerations and scarring

These types of injuries may result in temporary or permanent disability. In the most severe accidents, they may result in the wrongful death of the pedestrian.

Attorney R. Mark Maritote will fight for your right to collect compensation for your past, current and future losses associated with the accident. This may include medical expenses, lost wages, disability, and pain and suffering. In wrongful death cases, the family may also be entitled to compensation for funeral and burial expenses, the future lost income of the deceased and the personal loss of a loved one.
