Lake County Wrongful Death Lawyer

Nothing compares to the pain of losing a family member. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon on our roadways. More than 40,000 Americans lost their lives in car crashes in 2017, and the vast majority were caused by driver negligence. While moving forward after a family member is tragically killed is incredibly difficult, facing the financial problems of life without a spouse or parent can compound the difficulty. 

If your loved one was fatally injured in a car accident, it is critical to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against the negligent party. An experienced legal team can help you and your family receive the compensation you deserve. 


Illinois personal injury lawyer, Illinois wrongful death attorney, Illinois pedestrian accident lawyer,According to statistics collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), each year, almost 5,000 pedestrians are killed in motor vehicle accidents. Another 76,000 are injured. These numbers mean that every two hours, there is a fatal pedestrian accident, and every seven minutes, there is a pedestrian injured after being struck by a motor vehicle.

Although many people may believe that children are most at risk of being a victim of a pedestrian accident, the data shows that it is actually senior citizens who are the most vulnerable to pedestrian accidents than any other age group. Victims who are over the age of 65 account for approximately 20 percent of fatal pedestrian accidents each year. Another 10 percent account for those victims who are injured.

They may not be the most at risk, but one out of every five children between the ages of 5 and 15 are killed by a vehicle while they are walking. A study conducted by CDC researchers found that – nationwide – only 14 percent of children walk to school. Traffic danger was cited as the second most common answer by parents as to why their children did not walk.
