In New York City, the weather is sometimes good and sometimes bad, but pedestrians are plentiful. Unfortunately, the number of distracted drivers makes it difficult to walk, run or enjoy the activities on the sidewalks or street. Pedestrian accidents and fatalities are not uncommon, and pedestrians are at high risk for injury from negligent drivers. Having access to a pedestrian accident attorney can work to your advantage in helping get the compensation you deserve.
A pedestrian accident attorney understands the intricacies involved in pedestrian accidents and work to get justice for the victims. Although in some situations, pedestrians may have left themselves vulnerable and prone to an accident occurring, in most of these cases, it has been the negligence of the motor vehicle operator that contributed to causing the injury.
Pedestrian accidents fall under a number of scenarios. Some of them include:
• Driving while texting
• Driving while drinking
• Improper parking
• Running red lights
• Right turns without stopping
