Pedestrians Have Rights
Illinois is home to Chicago, one of the most walkable cities in America. Many of us walk to get to work, to visit friends and to get chores done. Unfortunately, pedestrian accidents happen more often than you would think. Smith LaCien LLP, has helped clients understand their rights after they have been injured. We are here to answer your questions from beginning to end.
Common Causes Of Accidents
It’s important to know that it is also your responsibility to act in a safe and cautious manner. That being said, it’s impossible to control those around you. Common causes of these types of cases often have to do with vehicles. Distracted driving, not following traffic signals and speeding can mean that someone simply crossing the street is now suffering. They have a duty to obey the law. When they don’t, they can be held liable.
The city and its businesses are also responsible for maintaining all sidewalks, roads and parking lots. When these are left behind, they can cause serious harm to pedestrians. When a business leaves snow in front of its building, those passing by can be in danger. If you are facing one of these situations, it’s important to have a knowledgeable attorney at your side. We can fight for the damages you are entitled to, including payment for medical expenses and any pain and suffering you have gone through.
