You Can Be Seriously Injured
In a city as large, crowded and busy as New York, pedestrians encounter numerous hazards. Some of the most common causes of pedestrian accidents include:
- Hit by a car or truck
- Hit by a distracted or drunk driver
- Hit by a school bus or city bus
- Slip-and-fall/trip-and-fall accidents
Pedestrian accidents involving vehicles most often occur in or near intersections, driveways, parking lots, sidewalks, crosswalks, schools, parks and playgrounds. Drivers who speed, ignore traffic signals or are busy with cellphones put pedestrians at increased risk for injury. Pedestrians who are hit by vehicles usually suffer catastrophic or fatal injuries, including head injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones or amputations.
Slip-and-fall/trip-and-fall accidents can happen anywhere and are often caused by uneven surfaces, broken steps, spills, snow and ice, potholes, cracked sidewalks or asphalt, or objects on the ground. Because of the potential of striking the head during a fall, these accidents can cause brain injuries. Falling can also result in fractures to the extremities and ribs.
All types of pedestrian accidents can cause serious injuries or wrongful death. We will fight to recover damages for medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and other related expenses.
