Palatine, IL Pedestrian Car Accident Lawyer

Barrington Injury Attorney for Walkers Hit by Cars, Trucks and Buses

A person crossing the street or walking on the shoulder has no protection against a careless driver. Pedestrians are also vulnerable in the legal process, as when the defense tries to blame the victim.

If you or a loved one was struck and injured by a motor vehicle, it is important to seek legal representation as soon as possible. At Lucas Law you are represented by experienced pedestrian accident attorneys who know what to do to protect your rights. We investigate promptly and work hard to maximize your auto accident compensation. Arrange a free consultation by calling 847-381-8700.

Pedestrians Have Rights — And The Right Of Way

Automobile drivers have a duty to proceed with extra caution at intersections and marked crossings, and near schools and residential neighborhoods. They have a duty to yield to pedestrians even where there is no crosswalk. Yet when accidents occur, drivers often try to claim that the person "darted into the street" or crossed against the light.

Trial lawyer Joseph Lucas knows how to counter this version of events and show that in fact the driver was in the wrong. We conduct a thorough investigation, and involve other professionals as necessary to prove that the motor vehicle operator was distracted, intoxicated, speeding, driving aggressively or simply failed to yield the right of way or anticipate foot traffic.

We have represented adults and children who suffered serious or catastrophic injuries, from broken bones and spinal injuries to head trauma and internal injuries. The hospital bills can be astronomical, and the person may need a range of future services from surgery to nursing care. We work with specialists in many fields to evaluate the medical issues and establish legal grounds for comprehensive damages.
