NYC Motorcycle Accident Leaves Pedestrian Critically Injured

Tips to Prevent Motorcycle AccidentNot all pedestrian accidents involve the use or operation of automobiles. Motorcycles can be just as dangerous to pedestrians. Point in case- a pedestrian who recently suffered serious injuries in Brooklyn, New York after he was hit by a motorcycle zooming down the street.

Surveillance video from a nearby car wash shows the pedestrian waiting at the red light waiting for several cars to pass by. He then proceeded into the cross walk. The footage shows that only seconds later, the 28-year-old pedestrian was struck head-on by the biker. The impact tossed the pedestrian into the air.

Both men were ambulanced to Jamaica Hospital in Queens. The motorcyclist is in stable condition, while the pedestrian is still fighting for his life.

Common Pedestrian Accident Injuries

Pedestrians are not afforded any protection when involved in an accident with any type of vehicle, including a motorcycle. This makes pedestrians more susceptible to suffering catastrophic and even fatal injuries during an accident.

Common injuries suffered by pedestrians involved in an accident include:

  • Traumatic brain injury and other closed head injuries
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Loss of limbs
  • Internal organ injuries
  • Death

Compensation For Pedestrian Accident Victims

Pedestrian accidents involving any type of vehicles can be tragic. If a victim is lucky enough to survive an accident, he or she may suffer serious, lifelong injuries requiring extensive medical treatment and attendant costs.

When seriously injured in a New York pedestrian accident, an injured person must take every step to be legally protected. One of the most important things to do is to hire an attorney who is experienced in handling pedestrian accident cases.

An experienced New York City pedestrian accident attorney can help you get compensation for:

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Loss of income
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional and mental suffering
  • Any other out of pocket expenses you may have incurred as a result of the pedestrian accident

Client Testimonials

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. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
