Pedestrian Accidents

Each and every day, hundreds of thousands of people walk throughout New York City.  However, despite the fact that there are several specific laws in place to protect the rights of pedestrians, accidents involving pedestrians are common and are usually the result of reckless or inattentive drivers who disobey traffic signals or who fail to yield the right of way.  Even if the vehicle that injured the pedestrian was traveling at a low speed, the injuries and consequences can be severe.  Regularly, pedestrian accident victims may suffer any number of injuries, including, but not limited to:

  • Death;
  • Disfigurement;
  • Fractured bones;
  • Traumatically-displaced vertebral discs;
  • Brain injuries; 
  • Torn ligaments;
  • Lacerations;
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder; and
  • Severe pain and suffering.                                                                             

The injuries sustained in a pedestrian accident can be long-lasting or even permanent.  They may require invasive surgery and can also lead to complex medical problems down the road.  Thus, it is imperative that a pedestrian accident victim does not accept an early settlement offer before the full extent of the injuries is ascertained.

If you or someone you know has been seriously injured as a result of a pedestrian accident, it is important that you contact an attorney immediately.  Our attorneys have the experience necessary to prepare your case and pursue an adequate monetary recovery for your injuries.
