Attorneys for Those Hit by Cars While Walking in Rolling Meadows and Mount Prospect

When you see the city of Chicago shown in the movies and on television, you are likely to see a number of local landmarks such as Wrigley Field and the Navy Pier, as well as more general images of the downtown skyline, lines of taxis, and sidewalks bustling with pedestrians. For many people who live and work in the greater Chicago area, walking is a part of daily life, as they must get to and from bus stops, L stations, or even parking garages. Walking is also a part of life for those who live in the suburbs, with many people walking or jogging for exercise or recreation.

With so many people out and about on any given day, accidents are going to happen from time to time, and accidents that involve pedestrians can be serious and even deadly. If you or a member of your family has been injured while walking or running, the skilled personal injury attorneys at Newland & Newland, LLP can help pursue full compensation under the law.

Cook County Counsel for Injured Pedestrians

Each year, hundreds of pedestrians are injured in motor vehicle accidents in Northern Illinois, and several dozen are killed. Tragically, most such accidents are completely preventable and are the result of negligence or carelessness. A pedestrian who has been injured by a negligent driver has the right to seek financial compensation for hospital and rehabilitation expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.

Attorney Gary A. Newland and his team have more than 60 years of combined personal injury experience. We understand that pedestrian accidents can occur in a variety of ways, and many of them involve driver negligence. In some cases, drivers are distracted by their cell phones or by texting while driving while in others, drivers might be under the influence of alcohol or drugs. It is also possible for drivers to simply not be aware of their surroundings or to miss a traffic light.

Protecting Your Rights in Buffalo Grove and Long Grove

Building a successful case for compensation following a pedestrian accident starts with a thorough investigation into the circumstances of the incident. Our attorneys will review police reports, witness statements, the scene itself, and any other information in an effort to figure out exactly what happened and who was to blame. We will also meet with you to discuss the extent of your injuries and how they are affecting your life.

Armed with this information, we will begin the process of negotiation with insurance companies on your behalf. We know that insurers are likely to try to escape or minimize their liability by shifting the blame for the accident to you or by downplaying the seriousness of your injuries. At Newland & Newland, LLP, we will not be tricked or intimidated into backing down, and we will continue to fight until you get the compensation you need to start rebuilding your life. If necessary, our attorneys are fully prepared to take your case to trial as well.
