Pedestrian Intersection Accident Lawyers In Chicago
Our attorneys fight to help you recover financial compensation
Intersections are very active places, with motor vehicles turning and traveling in many different directions. They can be dangerous places for pedestrians. A negligent driver can cause an accident that leaves pedestrians seriously injured. The pedestrian accident lawyers at Keating Law Offices, P.C. can help.
Our attorneys know how an intersection accident can impact pedestrians and their families. The medical expenses can soon become overwhelming. If the injured pedestrian can’t return to work, there is less money coming in. It becomes harder to pay the bills and they can no longer take part in their usual activities.
If you were injured in a pedestrian accident at an intersection, you deserve financial compensation. It should be a simple process. A negligent driver caused your accident and left you injured. You file a claim with the driver’s insurance company. The insurance company pays for all the damages you have suffered.
Attorneys who build strong cases that get results
The process is usually much more complicated than that. Negligent drivers typically deny doing anything wrong and do not accept responsibility. Insurance companies challenge claims. They may dispute the extent of your injuries or suggest that they were pre-existing. They may even try to blame you for partially causing the accident.
That is why you need an experienced pedestrian accident attorney fighting for your rights. We know the challenges involved in pursuing a claim with the insurance companies. We know the tactics they use to try to minimize your compensation and how to fight back against them. Keating Law Offices is committed to helping you get the best possible outcome in your case.
