Liability In Brooklyn Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrians are uniquely vulnerable in car accidents. They lack the protection of enclosed vehicles and are more likely to be overlooked.  According to the Centers for Disease Control, nearly 140,000 pedestrians were killed in 2017. There are a number of different factors that could potentially contribute to a pedestrian accident.

  • Inclement weather
  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • Driver fatigue

All drivers are supposed to exercise due care in order to avoid hitting pedestrians. Many pedestrian collisions occur when drivers are speeding or not scanning the road ahead of them. When a driver is negligent and hits a pedestrian, they can be held liable through a civil claim. There are a number of steps that should be taken after any pedestrian accident.

  • Surveillance footage should be sought.
  • Medical records should be preserved.
  • Eye witnesses should be interviewed.

Any person that is injured in a pedestrian accident may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim. Damages can help cover lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. A pedestrian accident attorney can examine your case free of cost and let you know what your legal options are. There are statute of limitations that need to be observed.
