Hit By A Car While Walking Or Jogging? You Need A Strong Legal Advocate On Your Side.

Chicago is a pedestrian-friendly city. Many residents choose to walk, jog or run whenever possible — especially downtown, where the restaurants and shops are abundant and the views along Lake Shore Drive spectacular.

Unfortunately, these same areas are crowded with cars, taxis, buses and delivery vehicles — and tourists who don't know their way around and drive while distracted by the sights. As such, pedestrian accidents are all too common in Chicago. Motorists choose to disregard — or neglect to see — walkers and runners. And when pedestrians are hit by vehicles, the injuries tend to be severe.
