If you were injured or hit by a car while a pedestrian in the street, you may be entitled to compensation even if you were not in the crosswalk. The law provides that drivers must avoid hitting or striking or colliding with a pedestrian. The driver may have hit you because he or she was not paying attention, he or she was on her phone, or distracted in some other way. Just because you weren’t in the crosswalk does not prevent you from going after a driver who was acting carelessly, who was not paying attention, who was texting at the time of the accident.
At Gainsberg Law, we have represented many pedestrians who have not been in the crosswalk in an accident, and we have obtained substantial compensation for these pedestrians. If you’ve been injured as a pedestrian in any way possible, please call 312-313-1621 or email us or visit our website. We will get you the compensation you deserve.
