Getting Compensation for Injured NYC Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrian accident AttorneyWalking is one of the easiest and most preferred ways to get around New York City, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, the city has never been the safest place for pedestrians. In fact, New York City has always ranked at top of the list as one of the nation’s most dangerous metropolitan areas for pedestrians.

Thanks to Governor Cuomo’s Vision Zero initiative, pedestrian accidents involving a fatality have been on the decline in recent years. However, reducing speed limits, blocking traffic on certain corridors and adjusting traffic signals have not been sufficient to totally eliminate accidents.

If you or a loved one is injured as a pedestrian, you might be entitled to recover monetary compensation. An experienced New York City pedestrian accident lawyer can help you seek justice and the full compensation that you are entitled to for your injuries.

Getting the Compensation that You Deserve

Pedestrians on the streets of New York City have very little protection when involved in an accident with a motor vehicle. Injuries suffered in a crash with a car can be serious and even fatal. These injuries often require extensive medical care and treatment. Although no amount of money damages will undo the harm caused, it can bring a sense of justice and the financial stability you need to get the treatment you deserve.

With the help of an experienced New York City pedestrian accident attorney and depending on the specific facts of your case, you may be entitled to compensation for:

– Past and future medical expenses
– Loss of earnings
– Loss of earning capacity
– Emotional and mental trauma
– Out of pocket expenses

Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents

Many different factors can contribute to pedestrian accidents, especially on the streets of New York City. Drivers, however, tend to be responsible for many of the injury-causing and fatal pedestrian accidents.

Some common causes of pedestrian crashes involving motor vehicles include:

– Distracted driving
– Aggressive drivers eager to get through an intersection as a light changes from yellow to red
– Making unsafe or illegal turns at intersections
– Failing to yield the right of way to pedestrians
– Fatigued drivers, and
– Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

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.
