Securing Just Compensation for Pedestrian Injuries

Pedestrians are among the most vulnerable road users, facing grave injuries when involved in car accidents. Unprotected by the safety features of vehicles, pedestrians are ill-equipped to withstand collisions with 4,000-pound cars. Your auto insurance policy may not cover the costs if you suffer injuries as a pedestrian or cyclist. Despite the catastrophic nature of your injuries and the associated high medical expenses, you may not have access to underinsured motorist coverage. In such situations, you need a pedestrian accident lawyer in your corner.

The pedestrian injury attorneys at Gardi, Haught, Fischer & Bhosale LTD represent pedestrians and cyclists injured by negligent drivers. Our track record includes recovering millions of dollars for our clients as we meticulously prepare cases for trial, utilizing a wide range of resources and tools to pursue maximum compensation.

Call (847) 944-9400 to discuss your case during a free consultation with our pedestrian accident lawyers today.

Determining Fault in a Pedestrian Accident

While it’s not an absolute rule that “pedestrians always have the right-of-way,” motorists bear the responsibility of taking all necessary precautions to avoid striking pedestrians. This is because pedestrians are different from large, heavy, fast-moving vehicles. Motorists are protected by doors, glass, seatbelts, and airbags, while pedestrians remain completely vulnerable, making them highly susceptible to catastrophic or fatal injuries in a collision.

Pedestrians must also adhere to all traffic laws and road regulations. Whenever possible, pedestrians should use designated intersections and obey all traffic control devices, such as “do not walk” signals/signs and crossing guards. Crossing in crosswalks is advisable, and walking along highways and areas where pedestrian access is prohibited should be avoided, except in emergencies.

Regrettably, most pedestrian accidents result from a motorist’s negligence, including:

  • Texting while driving
  • Eating or drinking while driving
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol/drugs
  • Speeding
  • Running red lights/stop signs
  • Driving while fatigued
  • Failing to yield the right-of-way
  • Driving in designated crosswalks/bike lanes
  • Opening car doors into pedestrians’ paths
  • Aggressive driving

If you were injured or lost a loved one in a pedestrian accident due to a negligent, reckless, or careless motorist, our pedestrian injury lawyers at Gardi, Haught, Fischer & Bhosale LTD are here to assist you.

The Significance of Experience in Pedestrian Accident Claims

At Gardi, Haught, Fischer & Bhosale LTD, our experienced team of pedestrian injury attorneys will explore all potential sources of insurance coverage to help you cover the costs associated with your injuries. This sometimes involves utilizing other types of insurance coverage. For example, if you are struck by a reckless driver while standing on the sidewalk in front of your home, your homeowner’s policy may come into play.

Each situation is unique, and we meticulously investigate your specific options for recovering the compensation you require. With over 100 years of combined trial experience, our personal injury and pedestrian accident lawyers can identify every possible avenue of compensation available to you.

Our Personal Injury Attorneys Dedicated To Maximizing Your Recovery

In some instances, our law firm collaborates with medical providers to pursue lien compromises or reductions in charges for our clients. For example, suppose you owe a hospital $30,000 for treatment, and we recover $50,000 for you in a personal injury settlement. In that case, we will persuade the hospital to compromise and reduce the reimbursement amount, putting more money back in your pocket.

If you’ve been injured due to another party’s negligence or recklessness, contact Gardi, Haught, Fischer & Bhosale LTD at (847) 944-9400 to speak with an experienced pedestrian accident attorney for a free consultation.

Staying Safe as a Pedestrian

Pedestrian accident statistics can be alarming, and the thought of being injured in such an accident can be frightening. However, the potential risk of pedestrian accidents should allow you to walk, jog, or run as you please. Instead, it should inspire you to take safety precautions to protect yourself from injuries or accidents.

Fortunately, there are steps pedestrians can take to enhance their safety:

  • Cross streets only at designated intersections or crosswalks, avoiding mid-road crossings or crossing between parked vehicles.
  • Ensure visibility at all times, especially during nighttime, by wearing bright or reflective clothing and walking in well-lit areas.
  • Use sidewalks whenever available, or walk on the shoulder of the road facing traffic if no sidewalk is present.
  • The risk of pedestrian accidents should not deter outdoor activities; instead, it should emphasize the importance of taking safety measures.
