Secure Compensation for Your Medical Care
If you have medical expenses from a pedestrian accident, we can explore every option available for recovering your damages and securing awards for necessary future treatment. As per The New York State Department of Financial Services, a driver’s personal injury protection (PIP) covers pedestrians injured by their car, regardless of fault for an accident.
We can assist you by making an application for your PIP benefits and we will also seek additional compensation from liable parties for serious, catastrophic, or fatal injuries via a liability claim or lawsuit. Recoverable medical damages may include:
- Emergency transportation and treatment
- Doctors and hospital fees
- Surgeries and medical procedures
- Physical and occupational therapy
- Medications, medical equipment, and mobility aids
- Long-term care services
- Lifecare expenses
Additional Economic and Non-Economic Damages
If you suffered a severe injury, your medical bills are likely only a portion of your out-of-pocket losses. Our North Bellmore pedestrian accident lawyers can seek additional economic compensation, such as:
- Lost wages and income
- Lost future earning capacity
- Personal property damages
- Household services
- Medical travel expenses
- Medically-necessary home and vehicle modifications
If you have a permanent or disabling injury, we can also seek non-economic damages for your physical pain, mental anguish, emotional suffering, and diminished quality of life.
Finally, we can get justice with a wrongful death claim if your family member suffered a fatal pedestrian accident injury. If the loss of a loved one is what has brought you to our website, please know that our firm offers our sincere condolences, and our attorneys consider it a privilege to advocate for survivors on behalf of their loved ones. We are prepared to be relentless in our pursuit of the compensation you need and the justice that your departed loved one deserves.

Statute of Limitations Restricts Your Time to Take Action
If you do not file your personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit within the time limits allowed by New York Civil Practice Laws & Rules § 214 and Estates, Powers & Trusts § 5-4.1, you will likely not be able to secure awards. The court will dismiss your case, or the insurance company will use it as a reason to deny your claims, so do not let your window of time expired. You should also note that, depending upon the unique circumstances of your case, other shorter time-to-act deadlines may apply. We will gladly review these with you in a no-obligation case review and free legal consultation.
The sooner you reach out, the sooner we can get to work interviewing witnesses, preserving evidence, and taking other important steps to build your case.
