New York Pedestrian Crashes
Pedestrian collisions happen constantly across the United States and in the state of New York. These crashes occur hundreds of times per day in the Empire State and are often caused by negligent drivers. In fact, more than half of reported crashes happen due to the actions of negligent drivers. In the past ten years, negligent driving has risen to the top of the list of reasons why American auto collisions occur. Also, car crashes have become the main contributor to severe injuries and fatalities across the United States.
Sadly, more than 5,000 individuals in the United States end up losing their lives due to pedestrian crashes every year. When you or a loved one of yours has been injured in a collision caused by negligence, you are most likely in need of legal assistance. You or your family member may be facing painful injuries that may take a long time to recover from. Injuries brought on by pedestrian crashes usually cause victims to stay in the hospital for days or weeks, forcing them to spend an extended time away from work. This can be overwhelming and stressful, especially when the bills are piling up against you.
Many expenses may result from a severe pedestrian accident, including medical care costs, lost wages, and even intangible damages like pain, suffering, and loss of life enjoyment.
