Liability For New York Pedestrian Accidents

Far too many pedestrians are killed or seriously injured every year in New York. Pursuant to New York Vehicle Code 1146, all drivers must exercise due care in order to avoid hitting pedestrians, bicyclists and domestic animals in the roadway. If a driver fails to reduce their speed in order to avoid a collision, this could form the basis of a negligence claim. Drivers should take a number of measures in order to avoid hitting pedestrians.

  • Drivers should check their blind spots before making turns in the roadway.
  • Drivers should slow down during periods of inclement weather.
  • Drivers should use their turn signals to let pedestrians know where they are going.

It can be hard to know where to begin after any car accident. Victims tend to suffer very serious injuries and may need to take extensive periods of time off of work. Any person that is injured in a car accident may be able to seek some measure of justice through a civil claim. A personal injury attorney can examine all of the unique facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
