Liability For Greenpoint Pedestrian Accidents

Thousands of pedestrians are killed or seriously injured every year in car accidents. According to the Centers for Disease Control, “More than 7,000 pedestrians were killed on our nation’s roads in crashes involving a motor vehicle in 2020. That’s about one death every 75 minutes.” Victims of pedestrian accidents tend to suffer very serious injuries including:

  • Broken bones
  • Head injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Spinal cord injuries

Drivers are supposed to exercise due care in order to avoid hitting pedestrians. This includes slowing down at intersections and checking for blind spots. If a driver fails to slow down to avoid hitting a pedestrian, this could form the basis of a negligence claim. A pedestrian accident attorney can examine the unique facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
