New York City is truly a city of pedestrians. From commuting to work, walking the dog or taking a trip to the corner store, the majority of New Yorkers travel by foot every day. And while pedestrians may rule the city, they are at a dangerous disadvantage if hit by a vehicle while walking on our streets.
Protecting The Rights Of Injured Pedestrians
According to a recent New York Times article, the majority of pedestrian accidents in NYC happen in crosswalks. In these accidents, victims can face a range of serious injuries, including broken bones, head trauma, internal bleeding and spinal cord damage. These individuals can also face extensive medical bills with no way to pay.
If you have been injured by a vehicle while in a crosswalk, it is important to get an aggressive legal advocate on your side right away. Without qualified representation, you risk losing out on the financial compensation to which you are entitled.
At Morgan Levine Dolan, P.C., we provide the legal knowledge, experience and compassion that crosswalk accident victims need during this difficult time. When you work with our law firm, you will have an entire legal team fighting on your behalf. Our lawyers focus only on injury and damages cases, and together we have recovered more than $30 million for our past clients.
Making The Case For Compensation
The truth of the matter is, a great majority of New York City drivers fail to yield to pedestrians in crosswalks — and these types of accidents normally occur when the traffic signals are giving the right of way to pedestrians. But proving a personal injury case takes more than statistics. It takes attorneys who know how to obtain solid evidence and prove liability.
Whether you were hit in a crosswalk by a taxi, delivery vehicle, bus or a privately owned car, our lawyers are ready to help. We are ready to fight allegations of jaywalking and walking against the light, or weak arguments from the defense surrounding your use of an electronic device or blood alcohol level while walking. We find and interview witnesses, obtain police records, and investigate the driver’s history.
After establishing responsibility, we focus on your injuries and medical expenses. We work with top medical specialists to quantify your current and future medical needs, and call upon economists to calculate your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
New Yorkers are not the only ones who can fall victim to crosswalk accidents. Tourists and business visitors walk our city on a daily basis just as our residents do. If you were injured in an NYC crosswalk accident while visiting our city, contact our law firm for help.
