Child Pedestrian Killed by Reckless New York Driver

Child Pedestrian Accident Attorneys

A 7-year-old pedestrian was fatally struck by a motor vehicle in New York City on February 27th as he was walking to school with his mother. Payson Lott and his mom were in the crosswalk with the light in their favor at the intersection of Blake Avenue and Pennsylvania Avenue when a Jeep recklessly struck them. Payson died and his mom suffered serious injuries.

The driver, 48-year-old Susan Pierrot, remained at the scene. She was driving with a suspended license and was charged with failure to yield to pedestrians, failure to exercise due care and operating a motor vehicle without a license. The police issued a desk appearance. Records show that Pierrot had received multiple violations in the past, including 10 speed camera tickets and 2 red light camera tickets. She accumulated more than $3,600 in fines.

Mayor de Blasio’s “Reckless Driver Accountability”

This fatal accident happened only one day after Mayor de Blasio signed into law the “Reckless Driver Accountability Act.” The bill is a lighter version of a proposal by Council Member Brad Lander to seize any vehicle that accumulates five or more camera tickets in 12 months until the owner of the vehicle attends a street safety course.

This new law is designed to allow authorities to seize a motor vehicle after it accumulates 5 red light tickets or 15 speed camera violations.

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers.
