Lawyer Fred Pritzker helps people injured in pedestrian accidents, which generally happen when a car, truck or other vehicle hits someone crossing the road or on the sidewalk. Our law firm has also handled cases where a vehicle crashed into a building. That is what happened to our client Ruth, who provided the testimonial below.
Pedestrian Accident Lawyer Fred Pritzker “Did a Great Job”
Ruth had no idea a trip to the dry cleaner would change her life. As she stood in line with her winter jacket, suddenly a vehicle crashed through the window, propelling Ruth against the counter, then through a doorway.
Ruth planned to pursue legal action for her injuries on her own until a second accident—a car accident not her fault—convinced her to seek legal help.
Ruth contacted a lawyer, who recommended Fred Pritzker.
“I told him right off I was not real fond of lawyers! He was okay with that. But I did feel that Fred had more of a caring attitude. He was so wonderful to work with, and I was actually injured way worse than I realized. I think he could see the life-long injuries where I couldn’t, and he was absolutely right. There are some that I still struggle with every day.”
“Fred did a terrific job. I just felt that he was someone I could work with, and it ended up being a very good experience.”
This is one of the many pedestrian accidents our law firm has handled. Fred Pritzker has won many 7-figure settlements and verdicts for his clients. One of our cases involved a man who was waiting in his wheelchair on the sidewalk at an intersection. A vehicle ran up the sidewalk and ran him over. His life became substantially more difficult due to the injuries he sustained. Fred hired a medical expert to help explain the severity of the new health issues and how they were going to affect this man’s future.
Eric Hageman, another attorney at our law firm, has represented people run over by buses while walking across the road on a green light. These cases almost always involve some form of distraction, for example, the driver looking back at a passenger while answering a question.
