Pedestrian Accidents in New York
Pedestrians are at a high risk of serious injuries and fatalities in the event of an accident involving any type of vehicle.

In one recent year’s time in New York, it was reported that approximately 300 pedestrians were killed in accidents, and over 15,000 sustained serious injuries. The truth is pedestrian accidents can almost always be prevented but continue to occur due to the recklessness of others.
