Pedestrian Accident Lawyers in New York City, Uniondale and Brooklyn
Pedestrian accidents can be life-altering. Oftentimes, they can leave victims with catastrophic injuries
and substantial medical bills. Personal injury lawsuits exist to protect pedestrians’ right to pursue
compensation for damages inflicted. Here’s what you need to know about pedestrian accidents.
Who Can File a Lawsuit?
If you or a loved one were struck by a car, truck, bicycle or other vehicle, you may be eligible to file a
personal injury lawsuit. While in some cases a pedestrian may be partially at fault for the accident, that
doesn’t necessarily disqualify them from seeking reimbursement.
What Damages Can Be Recovered?
You could recover damages for medical expenses (hospital bills, doctor’s visits, reoccurring treatment
costs, and more), lost wages (either time taken off work or reduced ability to earn an income), as well as
pain and suffering.
How Do I File a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
It’s always best to work with an experienced personal injury attorney when filing a lawsuit. Your
attorney can help gather evidence, file paperwork, negotiate with insurance companies, and represent
you in court. It’s important to act quickly, due to the statute of limitations.
