Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in New York

Thousands of people are harmed as a result of pedestrian accidents in New York each year. Quite often, pedestrians suffer severe and life-threatening injuries due to the fact that they are unprotected during crashes. We see many people harmed in these accidents suffer from severe injuries like spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, internal organ damage, and severe compound fractures. These incidents are often caused by negligent, reckless, and malicious motorists. We see many people injured in crashes caused by drivers who:

  • Fail to yield the right of way
  • Pass stop signs
  • Fail to yield to others sharing the road
  • Speed
  • Run red lights
