Pedestrian Crashes in New York

Brooklyn, NY - Several Hurt in Medical Episode Crash at 18th Ave & 76th StEveryone on the road has a right to travel safely. Unfortunately, when walking close to the road, there is a far larger risk of potentially catastrophic injuries for pedestrians. Data indicate that pedestrians account for a sizable fraction of traffic fatalities in New York. There are more than 300 pedestrian deaths, over 15,000 injuries, and more than 3,000 hospital admissions in the state per year. Because they are unable to withstand the power of an automobile collision, pedestrians are more likely to sustain severe or permanent injuries that could severely limit their quality of life. In the event of a serious pedestrian accident, you must be able to defend your legal rights, which calls for working with an experienced personal injury attorney.

You have rights as a pedestrian if you are injured in a car crash. If you have questions about your ability to pursue financial recovery, you should contact a trained Brooklyn pedestrian crash lawyer at Isaacson, Schiowitz & Korson LLP as soon as possible at (516) 774-3635.
