Our priority is to help you recover the compensation you need to move forward in life.

Let Us Help After a Pedestrian-Car Accident

Pedestrian accidents are devastating. Even at low speeds, a small car can cause a person severe or catastrophic injury. Suddenly, you or a relative find yourself in dire need of medical care, which costs a lot. Because the stakes are high, we recommend working with a lawyer from the very beginning. With a lawyer’s help, you have a better chance of building a strong claim and maximizing your compensation.

Throughout the claims process, our pedestrian accident attorneys make sure you understand your rights and options. Most personal injury claims are resolved with pre-trial settlements. But we won’t hesitate to tell you when filing a lawsuit is in your best interests. We aren’t afraid to fight for compensation in court.

Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents in the Bronx

Drivers often cause pedestrian accidents by:

  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • Running a red light or stop sign
  • Turning on red
  • Unprotected left turns
  • Drunk driving
  • Failing to yield to the right of way
  • Improper lane changes or merging
  • Backing up
  • Failing to check blind spots

Accidents With the MTA

Were you hit by an MTA bus? Call a pedestrian accident attorney immediately. Your claim is different than a typical personal injury case, and you have 90 days to file a notice of claim against the New York City Transit Authority. We’ve handled this unique process before and will help you through it.

Our Pedestrian Accident Attorneys Gather Evidence of Traffic Violations and Other Negligence

When we represent pedestrian accident victims, we thoroughly investigate what caused the crash and who was at fault. We collect evidence that we’ll use to prove the other driver was at fault, including:

  • Police report
  • Photos
  • Video footage
  • Medical records
  • Eyewitness testimony
  • Expert testimony

As we review the evidence, we look for any signs that the driver violated a traffic law. That might be speeding, running a red light, or a BAC over the legal limit. We also will look for signs of general carelessness, like failing to look out for people in a crosswalk before turning right on red.

Bronx Pedestrian Laws

It’s common for drivers and their insurers to argue the pedestrian was entirely at fault. That’s why we recommend hiring a pedestrian accident lawyer if you were hit by a car. You need to be prepared to prove you weren’t at fault or to minimize your comparative negligence.

In New York, pedestrians have to obey traffic signals. But when there isn’t a traffic control device at a crosswalk, pedestrians have the right of way. Cars, trucks, and other vehicles have to yield to the pedestrians.

We’ll determine whether the driver failed to yield. If you walked against the traffic signal, we’d strive to minimize your degree of fault.

You Rest & Recover. We Fight.

You and your family are going through a lot right now. You don’t need to deal with insurance companies right now outside of your health insurer. By hiring a pedestrian accident attorney, you have someone to do this work for you. We collect evidence, communicate with the insurer, and negotiate a settlement. In some cases, we represent you in court. Our goal is to reduce your stress, so you can focus on recovering from your injuries.

Our Goal is To Win Maximum Compensation

We are fierce about winning our clients full and fair compensation for their injuries. When a car or bus driver hits you and causes you harm, we demand justice. We demand the negligent driver take responsibility for the harm they’ve caused.

Talk with us today about how we calculate the value of a pedestrian accident claim, including your pain and suffering. Your case may be worth much more than your medical bills.

Bronx Personal Injury Compensation

Did a Loved One Pass Away from a Bronx Pedestrian Accident?

Our team also handles fatal pedestrian accident cases. If your spouse, parent, or child was killed in a car-pedestrian crash, give us a call. We’ll explain New York wrongful death law and if you have a valid compensation claim.

Bronx Pedestrian Wrongful Death Compensation

Through a wrongful death claim, some surviving relatives may receive compensation for:

  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Medical expenses
  • The decedent’s pain and suffering
  • The decedent’s lost wages
  • The loss of the decedent’s future income
  • The loss of the value of the decedent’s services
  • The loss of decedent’s parenting
