Lawsuits Filed Over Southern Illinois Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrian accidents are often traumatic, and can cause a wide range of serious injuries.  Many of these injuries can have adverse long-term health implications, including short- and long-term physical impairments.  In many cases, physical and occupational rehabilitation may be required, as well as surgeries.  As there are many types of expenses and other compensation needs that are associated with pedestrian accident injuries, personal injury lawsuits are often filed following pedestrian accidents.

On this site, pedestrian accident injuries, especially those that occur in Southern Illinois, are further discussed on the “Southern Illinois Pedestrian Accidents” page.  Various topics – including what to do if you are struck by a vehicle – are covered.
