Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in New York

4/27 Queens, NY – Officer Anastasios Tsakos Struck & Killed by DUI Driver on LIE

More than 10,000 people were either injured or killed in New York pedestrian accidents with a motor vehicle in 2018. The lack of protection in place for pedestrians sadly increases their likelihood of suffering serious or even fatal injuries following a collision with a vehicle. When a negligent party, such as a hit-and-run driver, causes injuries to you or a loved one, it is imperative to recognize the immeasurable value of experienced representation.

After losing a loved one in a careless, reckless, or otherwise negligent New York pedestrian accident by no fault of the victim, it may feel like no amount of compensation could make you feel complete again. While it is true that no financial restitution can ever fully make up for your losses, filing a wrongful death claim against the responsible party or parties can go a long way toward helping you find some semblance of peace again.
