The Dangers Of Traveling On Foot
Walking is the most common way to get around New York City, with sidewalks and crosswalks flooded with pedestrians at all hours. When drivers or pedestrians fail to follow state traffic laws, pedestrians are much more likely to suffer a serious injury or die. Distracted driving and failure to yield accounts for over two-thirds of the pedestrian accidents and fatalities in the city.
If a reckless driver’s actions caused your injuries, you can hold them accountable with our help. The Law Offices of Mark E. Weinberger P.C. has been helping pedestrian accident victims hold negligent drivers liable for over 40 years.
Vulnerable And Exposed
When struck by a car a pedestrian is likely to suffer injuries to the legs, torso and head from the impact with the car or the ground. Unlike the driver, safety features do not protect a pedestrian. Their vulnerability means pedestrians fare much worse during a collision. A struck pedestrian may suffer lacerations, broken bones, a traumatic brain injury or organ damage. The cost of ongoing care and rehabilitative treatment for serious injuries can be financially overwhelming.
