New York Pedestrian Accidents

Manhattan, NY - Two-Scooter Crash Causes Injuries on W 41st StNew York pedestrian crashes occur all too frequently. Keeping pedestrians safe in the Empire State has proven to be more difficult in the past decade or so. This is true to such a degree that the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee has implemented awareness campaigns to aid individuals in paying more attention to pedestrians and being more mindful of their safety. 

Pedestrians usually travel on sidewalks or in bike lanes, very near to fast-moving and heavy vehicles. Additionally, pedestrians have no protection against the force of these vehicles if an accident does happen. While pedestrians are walking, riding their bikes, scooters, or running, they are at severe risk of sustaining debilitating injuries or even losing their lives if they become involved in a collision with a car, truck, van, or another type of vehicle. While specific actions such as jaywalking or distracted walking can definitely result in collisions, the majority of pedestrian crashes in the US are caused by negligent motorists who fail to yield to pedestrians.

If you or someone you love has recently been injured in a pedestrian crash, you may be able to bring legal action against the person responsible for your crash. You should not have to worry about money at a time like this, especially if your injuries have landed you in the hospital or stuck at home and unable to work.
