We Defend Pedestrians’ Rights
In a pedestrian accident, the automobile always wins. If you have been struck by a car, truck or other vehicle, you have rights as a pedestrian. Whether it was a hit-and-run accident or the driver stayed to give you insurance information, it is up to you to take action and make sure you get the medical help you need and financial compensation you deserve.
With over 30 years of experience protecting pedestrian accident victims in the courts of New York and New Jersey, our lawyers are ready to help. At MetroLaw.Com, our attorneys understand the challenges you face in court and in the recovery room.
DOES YOUR INSURANCE COVER YOU?
New York City is a dangerous place for pedestrians, and most pedestrian accidents occur on city streets. It is important to understand that jaywalking is not a bar to making a personal injury claim. Drivers are responsible for staying aware of what is in the path of their car.
Many pedestrians in New York and New Jersey do not drive so they are unfamiliar with the rules of the road for drivers and the laws regarding insurance. If you have been injured in a pedestrian accident, your medical bills will be covered by no-fault insurance in both New York and New Jersey.
No-fault insurance will cover everything from medical bills to lost wages. If you have lost a loved one in a pedestrian accident, insurance will cover funeral costs as well.
A pedestrian has little protection when struck by a car. Although it depends on the nature and circumstance of the accident itself, pedestrian accidents often lead to catastrophic injuries, including spinal cord damage and paralysis. We are here to protect you and make sure you get the medical care you need.
