  • Running Red Lights
  • Running Stop Signs
  • Speeding
  • Fatigue
  • Drunk Driving

Seeking Compensation in Pedestrian Accidents

No pedestrian involved accident ends well for the victim and their loved ones. Under the worst imaginable circumstances, pedestrian accident victims do not survive their injuries. In addition to the terrible pain victims suffer before they pass, their loved ones lose a partner parent, sibling, or child. Grieving is never easy, and in such cases the deceased may have also been a provider for their loved ones, leaving survivors in a difficult financial situation.

Survivors of fatal pedestrian accident victims have the right to file a claim for wrongful death.
Such a claim can seek recovery for many losses, including:

  • Burial expenses
  • Funeral expenses
  • Costs of medical care provided to the loved one before death
  • Lost income of the loved one and future financial support
  • Lost household services, including childcare, cooking, and cleaning
  • Lost love, affection, companionship, moral support, and when appropriate, sexual
    intimacy

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
