For the Chicago pedestrian accident lawyers at Abels & Annes, there is no bigger compliment than representing a supervising claims adjuster from a major insurance carrier who was injured in a crosswalk accident.
The accident occurred back on 2/25/10 at State and Lake Street in downtown Chicago. Our pedestrian client was walking northbound across Lake Street in a crosswalk on the east side of the intersection when a bus turned right and failed to observe her. She was struck by the front end of the vehicle.
The plaintiff went to the ER at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. X-rays revealed she incurred a fractured left leg in the accident. She has since been following up with an orthopaedic physician.
The Chicago Police Department investigated the accident and issued a traffic citation to the bus driver for failing to yield to a pedestrian in the crosswalk. Since the accident, the defendant has plead guilty to the charge at the Daley Center.
