Pedestrian Accidents in New York 

Unfortunately, being a pedestrian can be dangerous even when you expect it to be a safe mode of transportation. This is due to the fact that drivers are not always aware of pedestrians on our roads even when they are supposed to be. In one year’s time, it is estimated that an average of 300 pedestrians are killed, and at least 15,000 sustain injuries throughout the entire state of New York. Any number of lives taken or people injured in a pedestrian accident is too many. If you have been hurt in a New York pedestrian accident, it is crucial that you speak with an attorney as soon as possible.

Being a pedestrian comes with risks. If you have been involved in one of these accidents, you have likely sustained life-altering injuries. These could include some of the following:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Internal organ damage
  • Broken bones
  • Organ damage

Because pedestrians have no protection from harm in an accident involving a vehicle, they are likely to sustain catastrophic injuries compared to other accidents. These types of injuries can wreak havoc on your life, making it hard to earn an income and pay all your medical bills when you should be focused only on your recovery.
