New York City’s high volume of traffic poses constant danger for pedestrians. In a contest between a motor vehicle and a pedestrian, there is simply no cushion to protect the human body. In 2018, 111 pedestrians were killed on New York City streets, an increase from 106 in 2017. The Licatesi Law Group, LLP in Brooklyn and Garden City has over 40 years of experience winning substantial compensation for pedestrians injured in collisions with motor vehicles. We know how devastating these injuries can be and understand what goes into building a successful case for damages.

Regardless of how the accident occurred, the personal injury attorneys at The Licatesi Law Group, LLP has the experience to fight for maximum compensation for your injury. Even if you were partially at fault for the accident, you may be able to recover a portion of your past and future medical expenses and past and future lost wages.
Injuries from a pedestrian accident can be minor or extremely severe, ranging from a laceration to an amputation or a brain injury. The lack of physical protection for a pedestrian increases the odds that the injury will be severe. Serious pedestrian injuries include broken bones, lost limbs, spinal injury, traumatic brain injury and death. Do not delay in speaking with our attorneys. Under New York law, you must file a no-fault application for PIP benefits within thirty (30) days and a personal injury lawsuit stemming from an auto accident within three years of the crash. If a loved one was killed in a pedestrian accident, you only have two years to file a lawsuit.
