Serving All Five Boroughs of NYC: Manhattan Traffic Injury Lawyer
Anytime a car or other motor vehicle hits a person on foot, the consequences are serious — and sometimes they are tragic. If the victim was in a crosswalk and walking with the walk signal, the driver is guilty of negligence and liable for the serious injuries or fatality of that victim.
Rundowns of pedestrians in New York City have long been a problem, but they have been on the rise in recent years. Victims include tourists and children, but also adult New Yorkers going to and from work or about their other business. Our firm is a proven resource for victims of pedestrian accidents, including those in crosswalks involving:
- A driver trying to beat a red light or "get the jump" on heavy traffic that can be challenging to navigate
- Any other failure to yield right-of-way to a walker or jogger in a crosswalk — often caused by various forms of distracted driving that have become all too common
- Over-aggressiveness and driving errors by bus drivers, taxicab drivers and other commercial drivers trying to maintain a schedule at the expense of pedestrian safety
- Hit-and-run drivers, who can often be identified and held accountable if investigators move quickly to gather witness testimony and other evidence
