Building a Compelling Case Based on Your Pedestrian Collision in New York City
These cases are often similar to New York bicycle accidents in that the driver’s mistake behind the wheel leads to catastrophic injuries for the victim. This is possible even at low speeds. Pedestrians have little protection from the forces that occur when a car, truck, or van hits them.
A traumatic brain injury (TBI), spinal cord injury, or serious neck injury could occur. Fractures and crush injuries are common. Medical bills pile up quickly. The victim and their family should not have to worry about how they will pay. Instead, the careless or reckless driver and their insurance company should cover the costs.
Using Evidence to Prove Your Right to Pedestrian Accident Compensation
We develop a strong case to show the at-fault driver caused the motor vehicle accident that injured you. The evidence our law firm uses to document what occurred could include:
- Police reports
- Video of the collision (Usually either dashcam and/or surveillance video)
- Eyewitness statements
- An accident scene survey
- Accident reconstruction
- Relevant medical records
- Expert witness testimony
- Documentation of damages
Once we have a compelling case, we approach the at-fault driver’s insurance provider. We are often able to negotiate an appropriate settlement in these cases. Injured pedestrians should not have to navigate the legal process or speak with insurance companies on their own.
When a lawsuit is necessary, we must meet the statute of limitations deadline set by New York Civil Practice Laws & Rules § 214* However, many factors could alter the timeline in these cases. We will explain more when you reach out to us. Our personal injury law firm aims to hold the negligent driver accountable and pursue the money you need.
(*It is important to note that while the statute cited is the most frequently applicable statute of limitations, a shorter one may apply to your case. For this reason, among others, we strongly recommend you take advantage of our offer of a free, no-obligation case review and consultation.)
