When drivers don’t watch the road carefully, the results can be devastating, especially for pedestrians. When a pedestrian is struck by a motor vehicle or even a bicyclist, the impact can cause severe injuries including cuts, bruises, head injuries, dental or facial damage, spinal cord trauma, or broken bones.
When you hire Midwest Injury Lawyers, we promptly investigate the scene of the accident to examine the location, preserve evidence, and help determine the amount of compensation you deserve. We’ll build a winning case to ensure you are paid for your pain, suffering, and all other damages and expenses.
We have successfully represented individuals and their families in many kinds of pedestrian accident cases, including those involving:
Recklessly failing to follow a posted speed limit sign endangers the lives of many - especially those on foot. When a pedestrian is hit by a speeding vehicle, serious injuries or even death can result. That’s why we hold speeding drivers accountable for their irresponsible behavior.
Drivers aren’t always the catalysts of pedestrian accidents. Defective designs in crosswalks and sidewalks can also contribute to dangerous situations. When designers fail to consider upstream and downstream traffic flows, they can jeopardize the safety of pedestrians. That’s why our team carefully analyzes every victim’s accident scene.
When drivers operate under the influence of alcohol or drugs, they put everyone at risk. Pedestrians are especially vulnerable when a drunk driver veers off the path or fails to come to a stop. At Midwest Injury Lawyers, we fiercely pursue justice against drivers who endanger others after drinking.
We all know the dangers of texting and driving - and yet so many drivers still operate vehicles while being distracted. When not paying attention, a driver can easily wind up in an accident with a pedestrian. Victims of distracted driving should be compensated for their medical expenses and other damages, and our pedestrian injury lawyers will fight for a fair settlement.
Retaining our legal services helps ensure that you meet critical state requirements and deadlines. Personal injury law is complicated, but we’ll handle the details on your behalf. You just focus on healing and recovering.

Chet was assigned my case after my previous attorney left the firm. I was very concerned given the outcome of this case would determine my future, but I was told by the firm I was in good hands, and I was. Chet was great with communication…
Mr.Cameron proves to be professional, hardworking, compassionate all while yielding results. After consultation with a couple of other firms, we decided to go with Chet. Upon our initial meeting, he assured us that he would do his best, and I believe he gave us that and more.

Accidents involving pedestrians often result in serious injuries. While a victim is seeking treatment and attempting to heal, we can investigate the scene, find all of the applicable insurance policies, and make sure your rights are protected. Any delay in action can give the insurance companies an advantage. As a result, it is crucial to speak with an experienced pedestrian attorney as soon as possible after an accident.

The first thing you should do is move to a safe location and seek medical help if necessary. You should then call the police to investigate the accident, record the information of the other driver and potential witnesses, and file a report.
If possible, we recommend taking pictures of the accident scene and documenting what you can immediately after the accident. Then, when you contact a pedestrian accident attorney, you’ll have more evidence to make your case.
Thousands of pedestrians are killed in traffic crashes every year, and even more are harmed or negatively impacted in some way. Unfortunately, it seems that as we are increasingly distracted as we drive, pedestrian deaths are on the rise.
A crosswalk is designed to keep pedestrians safe. They should account for the flow of traffic and place pedestrians in the least risky place for crossing. However, when they fail to do so, those who designed the crosswalk can be held accountable. We have helped pursue justice against engineering firms and government agencies.
The duration of a pedestrian accident lawsuit can vary based on the extent of the injuries, external circumstances, insurance negotiations, and more. Most cases are settled within three to five months, but some can reach up to two years before they go before a judge and jury.
The best way to expedite a pedestrian accident case is to hire an experienced legal team. At Midwest Injury Lawyers, we work to get through the process quickly and efficiently while also securing the best possible settlement.
