Kankakee Pedestrian Accidents Lawyer
Although our bodies are capable of absorbing all sorts of trauma, there is no defense for a one on one collision with an automobile. Pedestrian accidents are a very real threat to anyone and can occur at any time. They most commonly take place at crosswalks, near or around residential neighborhoods, school zones, and parking lots. One moment of carelessness by a driver can become a lifetime of pain or discomfort for the victim.
If you or someone you love has been hit by a careless or reckless driver, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your suffering. Contact the Kankakee pedestrian injury lawyers of Spiros Law, P.C., at (815) 929-9292 to speak to an experienced attorney today.
Common Injuries from Pedestrian Accidents
Pedestrian accidents can result in anything from minor scrapes and bruises to the death of an accident victim. Some of the most common injuries that result from pedestrian accidents include:
- Broken bones
- Head trauma
- Skin abrasions or burns
- Internal bleeding
- Contusions and bruises
You should be able to feel safe when you set out to cross the street, walk to your car in a parking lot, or send your children to school. When someone else takes that security away by hitting you or a loved one with a car, the consequences are often irreversible, and it is important that the responsible party is brought to justice for their actions.
There is never an excuse for carelessness to the point that a pedestrian is put in danger. The experienced attorneys at Spiros Law, P.C., can help you find out more about your rights as a victim. Contact our Kankakee pedestrian accidents lawyers at (815) 929-9292 to discuss your options today.
