Pedestrian Accidents in New York
It is all too common to see innocent people harmed as a result of accidents that take place in New York. Unfortunately, thousands of pedestrian accidents are reported every year in our state. These accidents are often caused by negligent and careless drivers who operate their vehicles without considering the safety of others nearby.
Victims involved in pedestrian accidents are more likely to suffer severe injuries that affect every part of their lives. Common injuries reported in these accidents include:
- Spinal Cord Injuries: A spinal cord injury can result in paralysis for a victim. Unfortunately, this can be permanent in nature. Victims who suffer from spinal cord injuries often had to go through months of therapy and rehabilitation. They often have to rely on medical equipment indefinitely.
- Head Injuries: We see countless incidents where people are left with head injuries following their accidents. This can include a concussion, a severe laceration to the head, a skull fracture, or even a traumatic brain injury. These injuries can be especially debilitating.
- Broken Bones: Suffering a broken bone can impact every part of your life. Unfortunately, we see many people break their arms, legs, or even their ribs following automobile accidents.
