Pedestrian Accidents

Within the state of Illinois, pedestrians are given the right-of-way in crosswalks. In many cases, however, motor vehicle drivers fail to yield the right-of-way to pedestrians. At Boudreau & Nisivaco, LLC, we can help you pursue maximum compensation if you have been injured or lost a loved one as the result of a pedestrian accident.


We have collected more than $100 million on behalf of our clients in the past 30 years and we maintain a strong reputation for providing the assistance that accident victims need.

If you are in need of experienced representation for your pedestrian accident case, schedule a free case evaluation with our Chicago personal injury attorneys at once.


Pedestrian accidents are often caused by a vehicle driver who was not paying attention and inadvertently hit a pedestrian who was crossing the street. Many pedestrian accidents occur when vehicles are making a turn at an intersection and the driver does not look for pedestrians who are entering the crosswalk. All motor vehicle operatorshave a duty to pay attention to pedestrians, whether there are designated crosswalks or not.

Our pedestrian accident lawyer can provide you with legal assistance as you seek to hold the liable party responsible. Don’t wait to contact us for your free evaluation. Call us today for a free consultation!

I came to John Nisivaco after being in a hit and run accident as a pedestrian. It was a very tough time for me and my family. When we contacted John we felt much more at ease. The whole experience was alleviated by John and the firm. He was upfront with us and told us all of our options and possible outcomes. With the case, we were always informed about its progress in a timely manner. I’m glad we came to John because he made our experience with my injury much easier and it was settled very quickly. He also looked ahead and made sure that I would be able to handle my settlement responsibly. I would recommend John Nisivaco to anyone who is thinking about hiring a personal injury attorney.

I just want to thank you so much for helping me get through a difficult time. I trusted you completely and you didn’t let me down. You were very professional and caring. My sister is going through a similar situation with her daughter and this incident happened over 3 years ago and she has gotten nowhere. I would highly recommend Boudreau & Nisivaco. You are the best!

Thank you so much for all of your help regarding my settlement! I am extremely grateful for all of your hard work and professionalism. You always took the time to answer my questions, and we knew there were many (sorry about that)! Again, a zillion Thank You's!


A few years ago, I used the law firm of Boudreau & Nisivaco for a work related injury and I was very impressed with their services. I received status updates in the mail and phone calls on my case as it progressed. Even after the settlement, my lawyer continued to call me to ask how I was doing. I would definitely recommend the Boudreau & Nisivaco law firm.


We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for representing us in our workers’ compensation claim in the most professional, knowledgeable and compassionate manner possible. You were there through the tears, the pain, and the heartache, and for that we will be forever grateful. You will always be very special to us.
