Pedestrian accidents should be taken seriously in New York

New York is notorious for clogged and narrow streets. Sadly, this accounts for a high incidence of pedestrian accidents. These city pedestrian accidents on the streets of New York are often serious, even fatal. Under any circumstances, a collision between a vehicle and a pedestrian on a crowded city street can have devastating consequences.

A pedestrian has no real protection and is openly exposed to injuries while a vehicle occupant at least has the safety of an enclosed vehicle. Even with a minor impact, broken bones are common. Also, the impact of being hit by a vehicle can easily lead to neck and back injuries which can plague a victim for years, even after expensive treatments and rehabilitation.

Any injury suffered by a pedestrian can disrupt daily life. Pain and suffering can be ongoing. Hospital stays and extensive rehabilitation often create a ripple effect financially that no one can predict or expect.

Because the after-effects of being involved in a pedestrian accident are so unpredictable and potentially life-altering, having a legal representative by your side can be a valuable resource. When a pedestrian accident turns fatal, unfortunately a common outcome in New York City, the family of the victim is typically entitled to pursue civil action. When pedestrian accidents occur, an accident victim may benefit from professional guidance before accepting an amount from an insurance company. Our website provides more information about how victims of pedestrian accidents can ensure they are treated fairly and pursue the compensation they need in order to assist in their recovery.
