Illinois Attorneys for Bicycle and Pedestrian Accidents
Most people buy car insurance to help provide financial compensation in the event of a car accident. However, no insurance exists that specifically covers bicycle bike accidents or pedestrian accidents.
Where, then, does the money come from to assist a seriously injured bicycle or pedestrian accident victim recover the costs of medical care, lost wages due to time off work, and future medical needs?
In the case of a fatal bike accident, the family can utilize a wrongful death claim to get the economic compensation necessary to help them recover from losing a family member to an untimely fatality.
Finding the answer to this all-important question is the primary job of the attorney you hire to represent your interests in the aftermath of a bicycle or pedestrian accident. It is, without question, in your best interests to get legal advice from an experienced personal injury lawyer after a pedestrian or bicycle bike or pedestrian accident. If you attempt to settle your accident case yourself, you may end up accepting too low of a settlement or receiving no settlement offer at all.
