How to Recover Compensation After a New York Pedestrian Accident

Most people do not suspect they will be severely injured while walking to school, work, or just down the road to the store. However, if you have been involved in a pedestrian accident, you most likely now require financial compensation to cover the cost of your medical bills, lost wages, and more. Please continue reading and speak with our New York pedestrian accident attorneys to learn more about how we can help you through the legal process going forward:

What most commonly causes pedestrian accidents?

Pedestrian accidents can be caused by several different factors. Inclement weather conditions, such as snow or ice can cause a motorist to lose control of his or her vehicle, leading to an accident. Additionally, poor road conditions or negligent road design also contribute to these accidents. Unfortunately, the most common cause of pedestrian accidents is driver negligence. Some of the most frequent types of driver negligence we see on the road today include texting while driving, excessively speeding, driving while drowsy or fatigued, and driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. If you have been injured while a motorist was doing any of these things, you are most likely eligible for financial compensation.

How do I receive financial compensation after being injured in an accident?

To recover financial compensation, you will have to prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence. Unfortunately, this is not always easy, so it is always best to retain the service of an experienced attorney who has been helping injured clients do so for years. To prove your claim, our firm will tirelessly work to recover security camera footage of the accident, witness statements verifying your claim, pictures of the accident’s aftermath, police reports documenting the facts of the incident, medical documentation detailing the extent and origin of your injuries, and more.

How long do I have to sue another person for an injury in New York?

In New York State, the statute of limitations is three years, which means you will have three years from the date of your accident to take legal action against the motorist who caused your injuries. If you wait any longer than three years, however, you will generally be denied your right to sue. Do not let this happen. Our firm is ready to fight for the compensation you need to get back on your feet once again.
