Pedestrian Accidents in New York
In 2014, over 300 pedestrians lost their lives in New York collisions due to the negligence of others. Thousands more were hospitalized. The unfortunate truth is that many drivers do not watch out for the well-being of those who travel by foot, which is why these accidents continue to occur vastly in cities and at intersections. Pedestrians are known for being some of the most vulnerable parties on our roads who are prone to some of the worst harm. Because of this, drivers are supposed to always watch out for their well-being. If you believe that you or a loved one have been harmed in a pedestrian accident because of the carelessness of a driver, it is important that you seek help from a legal advocate.
New York laws dictate the fact that drivers can be held liable for serious pedestrian accidents within the state. As such, you as a victim may find that you are eligible for numerous types of compensation after you have been harmed. These include aspects like medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, surgery costs, and more. If you are successful with your claim, a negligent party will be liable for the costs that you have sustained due to your accident so that you can work on your full recovery and avoid the stressful aftermath of an accident. If you have sustained injuries in a New York pedestrian accident and wonder where you can turn, it is important that you seek the immediate help of an accident attorney.
