Chicago Pedestrian Accident Attorneys

Chicago Substandard Medical Care Attorneys

As a thriving urban metropolis, the Chicago area, its neighborhoods and streets are crowded with both pedestrians, bicyclists and vehicles, all of which must learn to share the road and obey the applicable laws. Unfortunately, not all motor vehicles know or choose to obey the rules of the road and accidents occur and, in some cases, driver negligence can result in injuries or deaths.

Given the sheer volume of pedestrians walking to and from the high-rise office buildings in the Loop, as well as the number of tourists touring the city by foot, there are bound to be accidents. According to the Illinois Department of Transportation, in 2009 alone, more than 5,200 pedestrians were injured by a motorist and more than 100 pedestrians were killed by a motor vehicle.

What Is a Civil Lawsuit?

While criminal lawsuits involve a representative of the state initiating a lawsuit alleging criminal acts, civil lawsuits in Chicago are typically private cases that allow for disputes between individuals or entities. There are different types of civil lawsuits that people or organizations may file if they believe the defendant owed them a legal duty that they failed to provide.
