Pedestrian Accidents are Personal Injury Accidents
Pedestrian accidents constitute personal injury accidents in the eyes of Illinois’s civil courts. This means that the statutes that apply to the state’s personal injury cases also apply to pedestrian accident cases.
This specifically means that the personal injury statute of limitations, which dictates the amount of time in which you may file a personal injury claim, controls your timeline for filing a pedestrian accident claim. You have an obligation to get your claim within two years of your accident, according to 735 Illinois Compiled Statutes section 5/13-202, if you want your case to move forward.
Fortunately, you have experienced pedestrian accident lawyers on your side. Our office can step in, even in the face of your severe injuries, and make sure that you have the materials you need to argue for your right to a case well before your statute of limitations expires.
In doing so, we make it easier for you to recover from your losses and get the financial support you need to pay your bills.

When to File a Pedestrian Injury Accident Claim
You are not obligated to assume civil action against the party liable for your pedestrian accident losses. You can opt to work with insurance providers to get the financial support you need. You can alternatively attempt to pay your bills out of your savings.
No one will force you to take legal action, though the state may ask you to contribute to a criminal case against the liable party should it assume one.
That said, if you want to assume legal action against the party liable for your pedestrian accident claim, it’s better to do so sooner rather than later. The sooner you initiate an investigation into your losses, the more time investigators have to bring forward the data needed to prove your right to compensation.

Fair Loss Compensation
Even minor pedestrian accidents can leave you with serious bills. If you don’t have emergency savings at your disposal, you may not have the opportunity to pay those bills without putting yourself in debt.
It’s not fair that you have to pay for the consequences of someone else’s misconduct. Fortunately, our attorneys can step in and help you get the financial support you need to get your life back on track again. When we file your pedestrian accident claim with a civil judge, we can win you the right to fight for fair compensation in or out of civil court.
Filing a pedestrian accident claim may give you the right to request damages for accident losses like the following:
- Medical expenses
- Emotional distress
- Property damage
- Mental anguish
- Loss of opportunities to work
- Lost wages
You can work out the total value of your case when you first meet with Morelli Law Firm’s legal team.
It can be difficult to get insurance providers and a liable party to cooperate with you in the wake of a pedestrian accident. Both parties want to take as many steps as possible to protect their finances. As such, these parties may undermine your losses both in and out of court.
If you opt to file a pedestrian accident claim, you can get your side of the story down on paper before a liable party or insurance adjuster has time to misrepresent your case.
