Manhattan pedestrian accident lawyer

Unlike the driver of a motor vehicle, pedestrians aren’t protected from injury in any way. There isn’t a steel body with crumple zones around them to absorb an impact, and there certainly aren’t any seat belts to restrain them or air bags to cushion them. Pedestrians are completely exposed to serious or even fatal injuries when they’re struck by a motor vehicle. Even a light impact can be debilitating or deadly.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, nearly 5,000 lives are lost every year as a result of pedestrians being hit by motor vehicles. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that 150,000 pedestrians were treated for crash-related injuries in 2013. Common injuries suffered by pedestrians in these accidents are:

  • Traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries
  • Fractures, especially to the lower extremities
  • Joint injuries to the spine, shoulders, hips and knees
  • Damage to internal organs

Common causes of pedestrians being hit
Most pedestrians use due care and caution when crossing streets and intersections, but some of them still get hit and seriously injured or killed, even when they’ve followed all traffic and pedestrian laws. Some common causes of crashes between motor vehicles and pedestrians are:

  • Driver distraction
  • Driver fatigue
  • Speeding
  • Disobeying traffic signals
  • Failing to yield the right-of-way

If indeed you used due care and caution when crossing a roadway, or you had a walk signal and even looked both ways before crossing and getting hit, you probably have a viable claim for damages that you suffered. Those damages can include:

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Past and future lost earnings
  • Pain and suffering
  • Any permanent disability
  • Any permanent disfigurement
  • Loss of a normal life

Uninsured drivers
Even if you were hit as a pedestrian or bicyclist by an uninsured driver, you might still have a basis for a claim through your own uninsured motorist coverage. You might also have a basis for a claim as a pedestrian or bicyclist if you were injured by a hit-and-run driver.

Most pedestrian accidents occur in urban areas. Hundreds of thousands of people in New York City walk to bus and subway stops from their homes in the morning. On their way home after work, they walk to and from bus and subway stops again. Lawscape has been representing victims who were injured by careless and negligent drivers for over 18 years. Whether you were hit by a car, truck or bus, or a family member was killed by one, he can help you.

If you or somebody close to you has suffered injuries, or a family member died as the result of a pedestrian accident anywhere around Manhattan, don’t hesitate to contact our offices to arrange for a no obligation free case consultation and evaluation. Personal injury and pedestrian accidents involve complicated litigation. Lawscape is a veteran personal injury litigator with a proven track record of success. Preserve and invoke your rights by contacting him right away after any serious accident. Evidence might get lost or disappear shortly after an accident. Witnesses might vanish too.
