Protect Your Rights As A Pedestrian
As a pedestrian, you have the same right to safety that motor vehicle drivers do. Unfortunately, in an accident, pedestrians are almost always going to emerge more injured than the driver.
After an accident, you will almost certainly have costly medical bills. At The Law Offices of Eugene K. Hollander in Chicago, our legal team can help you seek fair and just compensation for your medical treatment, lost wages, trauma and other damages. As an experienced Illinois personal injury team, we know what it takes to make your case succeed.
What To Do If A Car Hits You
After a motor vehicle crash, you no doubt feel disoriented and frightened. However, there are some important steps that you should take, if you have the presence of mind:
- Seek medical treatment immediately, even if you do not have any visible injuries.
- Call the police and have them file a formal report.
- Get the name, contact information and insurance information of the driver and any witnesses.
- DO NOT speak to any insurance companies.
- Contact a personal injury attorney.
If you adhere to these steps, you will have a much better chance of recovering full compensation. For more information, schedule a consultation with a lawyer at The Law Offices of Eugene K. Hollander in Chicago. You can also read our page of frequently asked questions.
