New York Pedestrian Accidents
Despite the many safety regulations designed to keep pedestrians as safe as possible in New York, they are still hit by cars at an alarming rate in the state. Tens of thousands of people are struck by vehicles each year in the Empire State, thousands of which require emergency room visits. Sadly, about 300 people are killed per year in New York pedestrian accidents.

Our team of compassionate attorneys works diligently to preserve and protect your legal rights and will aggressively negotiate a full and fair settlement for you from the insurance company.
