Pedestrian Accidents

We handle pedestrian accidents in New York City with compassion and care. No matter how fast a vehicle is traveling when it hits you, injuries are likely to be severe. Even if you think your injuries might be minor, don't hesitate to seek medical attention and contact a lawyer.

In most cases, pedestrians have the right of way, and you likely have several legal options for injury compensation, beginning with your uninsured drivers insurance policy. We can help you maximize your recovery.

If you can, follow our guidelines for what to do after an accident. If nothing else, get the license plate of the vehicle that hit you.
