Pedestrian Accidents in New York 

Pedestrians are the most vulnerable parties on our roads in the state of New York. This is due to the fact that pedestrians are incredibly vulnerable and have no protection from harm like drivers in passenger vehicles do. In one year’s time in New York, an average of 300 pedestrians are killed and over 15,000 are injured in pedestrian accidents within the state. If you are a pedestrian who has sustained injuries in an accident and you believe that another party is to blame, you may wonder where you can turn.

It can be scary to face the aftermath of a pedestrian crash entirely on your own. This is especially true if you have sustained severe injuries in your accident. These include some of the following:

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Organ damage
  • Paralysis

These injuries tend to land victims in the hospital or cause them to miss out on time in the workplace. It can be a long road to healing before you. Speaking with a Queens pedestrian accident lawyer can ensure that your rights are being protected after an accident.
