If you or a loved one were hit by a vehicle while on foot in Manhattan, don’t wait to get help. Pedestrian car accident claims can be complicated. Drivers and their insurance companies often put up a fight. A Manhattan pedestrian accident attorney with HKD can help you fight back and recover full compensation.
The New york personal injury lawyers at Hecht, Kleeger & Damashek, P.C. put our clients’ needs first and have what it takes to secure the result you need after being struck by a negligent driver. We offer free consultations and no fees unless you win.
After a pedestrian accident in Manhattan, it is imperative to seek legal representation. Insurance companies and the driver who hit you may refuse to pay up. Hiring an accident attorney will show them you mean business. You should have an experienced legal advocate fight on your behalf and hold the negligent parties accountable.
The NYC injury attorneys at HKD will investigate your accident and examine the evidence. During our investigation, we might discover a driver behaved recklessly, such as running a red light or speeding. Medical records and input from doctors also help us determine the extent of your injuries. HKD’s thorough approach after a pedestrian-involved collision can strengthen your case and increase the odds of recovering maximum compensation.
As a pedestrian walking on a busy Manhattan Street or crowded parking lot, you must follow traffic laws. However, you can adhere to the rules of the road and still be injured due to a driver’s negligence or inattention.
Common reasons motorists hit pedestrians include:
Your Manhattan pedestrian accident lawyer can help prove the driver disobeyed the law and drove recklessly, even if the driver is uninsured.
Pedestrian accidents often cause significant injuries. Whether in a wheelchair, on a skateboard, walking, or running, you likely had minimal defenses against a moving car. The impact can be traumatic.
Common injuries in a pedestrian accident include:
Unfortunately, pedestrian accident injuries can be fatal. When you lose a relative in a Manhattan pedestrian accident, you could be entitled to compensation.
Contact a compassionate New York wrongful death attorney for legal guidance. We know your grief might feel overwhelming. We’re here to help however we can.
HKD understands the financial burdens you may face after a pedestrian accident. When it comes to your injuries, you deserve to focus on recovery, not worry about debt. Our team will comb through your case to calculate the amount for all your damages, including:
We don’t settle for less than our clients deserve. That’s why we work closely with every accident victim to keep them informed about their case and what they can expect. HKD will also communicate with medical providers, experts, witnesses—anyone who can supplement your case. We fight hard for you to win every cent for every damage. Although most pedestrian accident claims settle, our NYC accident attorneys can take your personal injury case to court if needed.
Dealing with insurance companies after a pedestrian vs. car accident can be a hassle. It’s not rare for a negligent driver to spin the story and blame a pedestrian for an accident. For example, they may claim that you were not in the crosswalk if you were hit while crossing the street. Their insurance company will likely call you and try to get information to use against you as defense in your personal injury claim.
Instead, let your Manhattan pedestrian accident lawyer communicate with them on your behalf, so they can protect you from being taken advantage of.
What HKD Does for Injured Pedestrians:
Filing a claim can be challenging to do alone. A common frustration in pedestrian accident claims is trying to prove the driver’s negligence. You shouldn’t have to do all the work to get compensation when you face significant injuries. Our NYC injury attorneys can help. We’ve helped file claims for many pedestrian accident victims before. HKD knows what goes into each step and how to calculate the total value of your claim.
The process looks different if you or a loved one were hit by an MTA bus. Don’t wait to call a lawyer. When the driver at fault is a government employee, you have 90 days to file a notice of claim against the New York City Transit Authority. Our team has handled these types of claims and can guide you through yours as quickly and painlessly as possible.
With help from an experienced pedestrian accident attorney, you can:
If you or a loved one were injured in a Manhattan pedestrian accident, you owe it to yourself to recover. The responsibility of paying for your damages shouldn’t be on you. A lawyer can shoulder the burden and fight for everything you deserve. Hecht, Kleeger, & Damashek, P.C. can help you obtain compensation to move on with your life.
