New York & Long Island Pedestrian Accident Lawyers
There are thousands, if not millions, of pedestrians throughout New York City on any given day. In a city that is home to so many pedestrians, it’s important for all drivers to abide by traffic laws and practice safe driving. When a negligent driver strikes a pedestrian and causes harm, injury, or death, he or she will be held liable under New York personal injury law. If you have been injured after being struck by a car, you are entitled to be compensated for your injuries. An experienced New York pedestrian accident attorney can investigate your accident, and help you recover damages for your pain and suffering, medical expenses, treatment, and financial hardship.
A pedestrian accident occurs when a person on foot is struck by a motor vehicle. The number one cause of pedestrian accidents in New York is driver negligence. Acts of driver negligence include:
- DWI (driving while intoxicated)
- DUI (driving under the influence)
- Falling asleep at the wheel
- Running a red light
- Running through a stop sign
- Failure yield to a pedestrian
