Pedestrian Accidents in New York 

Pedestrians are at a high risk of injury or even death in pedestrian accidents throughout New York every year. This is due to the fact that more and more people in New York are choosing to walk to get from place to place, including in major cities. Another fact is that pedestrians have no real protection from harm when they are involved in an accident, making them susceptible to extensive harm. In one recent year, approximately 300 pedestrians were killed, and over 15,000 sustained injuries in the entirety of New York. If you have been hurt in a pedestrian accident caused by another party, it is crucial that you speak with an attorney that you can trust.
