New York Pedestrian Accidents

Bronx, NY - Pedestrian Injured in Accident on Westchester Ave near Southern BlvdNew York pedestrian crashes are all too common. Keeping pedestrians safe in the Empire State has become a serious problem, to such a degree that the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee has put awareness campaigns in place to help individuals become better acquainted with pedestrian safety regulations in New York.

Thousands of pedestrians are hurt in accidents across the state each year. A large percentage of these collisions occur in New York.

Pedestrians travel with little to no protection all the time. This means that every time they go for a walk, run, or ride their bike, they are at serious risk of sustaining injuries that could debilitate them for a prolonged period, if not the rest of their lives. While actions such as jaywalking can undoubtedly result in collisions, most pedestrian accidents are caused by drivers who fail to yield the right-of-way. 

If you or a loved one of yours has suffered severe injuries in a pedestrian crash, you may be able to bring legal action against the person, persons, or entity responsible for your injuries.
