Buffalo, NY (January 07, 2020) – A woman was struck by a car in downtown Buffalo on Tuesday, January 7th when she was attempting to cross the road with her baby.

The accident took place shortly after 11:00 a.m. when a driver made a lefthand turn from onto Delaware Avenue from Virginia Street. 

Police reports indicate that a mother, 32, was crossing Delaware Avenue, pushing a stroller that held her 9-month-old daughter when she was struck.

The baby was not hit by the car but her stroller did tip over.

Our thoughts are with the injured victim and her family at this time. We hope for a full recovery.

Pedestrian Accidents in Buffalo

Buffalo, NY - Mother and Daughter Hit by Car on Delaware Ave

Due to the unique vulnerability of pedestrians involved in motor vehicle collisions, lawmakers in the state of New Jersey have established legislation that mandates drivers to adhere to a very stringent duty of care. Should drivers breach this duty of care, they are able to be held responsible in both civil and criminal courts.

If you have been involved in any type of accident, it is in your best interest to confer with a personal injury attorney before you speak to anyone else. The driver’s insurance company will typically try to get you to settle the claim for the smallest amount of money possible. Your personal injury attorney will have the skill and the knowledge to make sure you don’t get taken advantage of.

If you or someone you love has been injured or killed in a pedestrian-involved accident then you may have a right to financial compensation to cover any damages such as hospital bills, lost wages due to time away from work, pain and suffering, or even wrongful death.
