Pedestrian accidents in New York

New York pedestrians are injured in accidents involving motor vehicles every year. Because of the fact that pedestrians have little to no protection from the physical forces that are released in accidents with automobiles, the accidents often result in fatalities or catastrophic personal injuries. If you have been injured in a pedestrian accident, you may be left with a permanent disability and a reduction in your ability to earn a living and to enjoy your life.

Pedestrian accidents may also be caused by bicyclists, motorcyclists or animal attacks. No matter what type of incident led to your injuries, you may have the grounds to file a personal injury claim if your accident and injuries happened because of the negligence of another party.

Pedestrians who are injured in accidents may have to deal with insurance companies that attempt to dispute liability by blaming the victims. In order to prove your claim, you may need to get help from experts to prove liability. Serious injuries that can happen in pedestrian accidents include fractures, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, permanent disfigurement and others. Through a personal injury claim, you might recover damages so that you can be monetarily compensated for both your economic and noneconomic losses.

Our attorneys are familiar with the arguments that insurance companies commonly raise in defense of personal injury claims involving pedestrian accidents. We work to build strong cases for our clients in order to try to secure settlements for them short of going to trial. We often get help from experts in order to reconstruct accidents and to show the extent of our clients' injuries. This helps to resolve our clients' cases in many situations.
