Pedestrian Accidents in New York
Every year, nearly 40,000 people suffer unbearable injuries in motor vehicle accidents across New York. Victims involved in pedestrian accidents are more likely to sustain catastrophic and life-altering injuries. In fact, many victims are left with life-altering injuries that demand extensive medical treatment and hospitalization. The majority of injured pedestrians have to use medication, medical equipment, and go through years of therapy in the aftermath of their accidents.
Although there are many treatment options available for accident victims, they often come at a high cost. The thought of having to spend tens of thousands of dollars on treatment for injuries resulting from an avoidable accident is completely unacceptable. When victims are harmed in collisions, it is imperative that they reach out to a pedestrian accident attorney in New York to explore legal options available to them.
