Pedestrian accidents often lead to serious injuries, and at times people pass away after being struck by a vehicle. There is a wide range of accident injuries that can occur after someone is hit. Among the most common injuries are broken bones; bruises and scrapes, and head injuries. Various other types of injuries can occur such as thoracic trauma.
Due to the typical severe nature of injuries and the resulting need for medical treatment, following medical treatment the hospital charges and other medical bills are often significant if not substantial.
Due to these medical bills as well as the need for other types of compensation, a personal injury lawsuit is often filed to get money. A personal injury lawsuit resulting from a pedestrian accident was recently successfully settled for $775,000 by the Elman Joseph Law Group. That lawsuit is discussed in the “Cook County Pedestrian Crashes…” post.
