If you or a loved one were hit by a car in Queens, give us a call. Pedestrian car accident claims can be complicated and contentious. Drivers and their insurers don’t want to admit fault. But with the help of a pedestrian accident attorney, you have a good chance of recovering compensation for your injuries.
One of the most frustrating aspects of accident claims is that you have to prove the other person was negligent. You’re hurt or grieving the loss of a loved one, yet you need to do all the work. That’s why we highly recommend calling a pedestrian accident attorney in Queens. You’ll benefit from focusing on yourself and your family. Let us investigate, gather evidence, talk with the insurer, and fight for a fair outcome.
We handle car, and pedestrian accident claims regularly. We know what to expect from insurers, and more importantly, we know what personal injury cases are worth. After learning more about the accident and your injuries, we’ll calculate the value of your claim. We aren’t afraid to go up against an insurance company’s team of lawyers and demand a fair settlement.
Most pedestrian accident claims settle. But we’ll take your case to court if that’s in your best interests. We are experienced and successful trial lawyers who know how to use discovery to our advantage.
Many car accidents with pedestrians are caused by:
If you or a loved one were hit by an MTA bus, call a lawyer right away. When the driver at fault is a government employee, the process you face is different. 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 we can guide you through yours.
After being hit by a car, you shouldn’t accept the other driver or their insurance company’s word on what happened. You need to find out the facts for yourself. But that’s easier said than done. We recommend working with a Queens pedestrian accident lawyer who will thoroughly investigate the crash.
After a pedestrian accident, we gather and review:
Through this process, we find evidence that supports your case that the other driver was careless or reckless. We might find they ran a red light or made a right turn on red. We build you the strongest case possible to recover compensation.
It’s not uncommon for a negligent driver to blame the pedestrian for the accident. The best way to prepare for this argument is to hire an experienced lawyer. We know how to handle this allegation.
Pedestrians in New York indeed have to follow traffic laws, too. They also have an ordinary duty of care to be careful like everyone else. But if you were in a crosswalk and obeying traffic control signs, you had the right of way. The vehicle should’ve yielded to you.
If it’s true that you or a loved one are partly to blame, you can still recover compensation. We’ll work hard to reduce your percentage of fault and win you the most compensation possible.
Right now, you or a loved one are recovering from serious injuries. You might have suffered a catastrophic injury that left you with a disability or disfigurement. Now isn’t the time for you to deal with insurance companies. Let us handle the claim process while you rest and recover.
We’re here to help if you’ve suffered any injuries, including:
What HKD Does for Injured Pedestrians:
The cost of a pedestrian accident can seem impossible to pay off. How are you going to cover the medical bills while you’re out of work? What if you’ve already gone through your savings? We know these financial issues weigh heavily on pedestrian accident victims. We encourage you to give us a call and let us fight to recover you the most compensation possible in your claim.
You may be entitled to compensation for your:
When we handle your case, we fight for you to receive every penny you deserve. We work closely with you, your medical providers, and medical experts to prove the type and severity of your injuries. We’ll also work with you on the best way to prove pain and suffering.
That might include using your journal entries, testimony from friends and family, or a “day in the life” video.
A person has no protection from cars or trucks. That’s why many car-pedestrian accidents cause the pedestrian’s death. If you’re mourning the loss of a spouse, child, or parent, call us immediately. You may have the right to file a lawsuit against the negligent driver and demand wrongful death compensation.
Some surviving family members are entitled to compensation for:
