Pedestrian Accidents in New York
Pedestrian accidents occur at an alarming rate across New York. Unfortunately, these accidents claim more than 1,500 lives each year while leaving thousands more with debilitating injuries. The simple fact that the human body is unprotected against the impact of a vehicle means pedestrians are more likely to sustain serious and life-threatening injuries. In some cases, victims can reach out to a pedestrian accident attorney in New York to get the justice they deserve.
