A female client recently had the right of way while crossing the street when she was struck by a vehicle making a left-hand turn. The driver admitted to the responding officer that he did not see the woman crossing the street. In severe condition, the woman was transported to Illinois Masonic Medical Center. She suffered several serious injuries and spent three days in the hospital. Additionally, she underwent extensive physical therapy and was forced to use a walker and cane for a prolonged period. With the help of our Chicago pedestrian accident lawyers, the woman recovered $50,000 in addition to $49,000 for an underinsured motorist settlement.
