Pedestrian Accidents in New York
Walking is one of the best types of exercise and can be cost-effective for those trying to save money. However, there are risks that come with walking from one place to the next, especially when you are walking in a bustling area of New York. Many pedestrians lives are threatened by large passenger vehicles each year. Because pedestrians have no protection from harm, they are likely to become seriously injured or even killed in the event of an accident. In just one recent year in New York, in fact, approximately 300 pedestrians were killed, and 15,000 were injured in serious accidents. If you are somebody who has been hurt in a pedestrian accident, speaking with an attorney is one of the best decisions that you can make as you move forward.
There is a wide range of scenarios that can occur that leave pedestrians with serious injuries each year. For instance, a pedestrian could be struck by a vehicle driven by a driver who is not watching where they are going at an intersection. A pedestrian could be walking in a parking lot when, suddenly, they are struck by a vehicle backing out of a parking space. Many serious injuries result from pedestrian accidents, which include the following:
- Broken bones
