New York Pedestrian Accidents

Brooklyn, NY - Pedestrian Hurt in Crash at Flatbush Ave & Farragut RdTraveling as a pedestrian is a way of life in New York. Unfortunately, sharing the road with a motor vehicle is never safe on foot. The New York City Department of Transportation (NYCDOT) reports that there were 7,354 pedestrian-vehicle collisions with fatalities and serious injuries in a recent year. A combined 739 pedestrian deaths were reported in that year, and 6,784 major injuries were caused by 6,615 crashes. The risk of dying in an accident involving a pedestrian is still ten times higher than that of a driver. Given their lack of protection, pedestrians are definitely more likely to sustain severe or even fatal injuries in the event of a collision. If you or someone close to you is hurt in a crash, you should consult a qualified lawyer to pursue a claim for compensation.
