INJURY COMPENSATION IN YOUR CASE
Being hit by a motor vehicle is traumatic, and you want to be sure that you are receiving top-tier medical care for injuries and psychological trauma caused by the accident. The costs of medical care, lost income, and pain and suffering may be recoverable in a well-built and properly investigated personal injury claim against a negligent or reckless driver. Furthermore, punitive damages may be available if we can prove that the vehicle driver acted recklessly or intentionally meant to harm you.
FAULT IN A PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENT CASE
A motor vehicle driver who hits a pedestrian is at fault in most cases. Just because a driver did not see you, and even if you were jaywalking, that driver can still be held accountable for hitting you. Our team fully investigates the cases we handle, reconstructing accident scenes, taking pictures, gathering witness statements and valuing your short- and long-term injuries in collaboration with medical experts.
It is critical to retain a pedestrian accident attorney in New York City who is familiar with the city, the court system, insurance laws and statutes of limitations.
