I Was Hit By a Car as a Pedestrian. Am I Entitled to Compensation?

Both pedestrians and motorists are responsible for following the rules and regulations of the road at all times. Unfortunately, both pedestrians and motorists are both guilty, at times, of violating these rules and regulations. When they do, people are seriously injured. If you are someone who was recently struck by a car as a pedestrian, you’re most likely now very seriously injured and seeking compensation to help you deal with your injuries. Please continue reading and reach out to our Bronx car accident lawyer to learn more about pedestrian accidents in NYC and how our firm can help if you’ve been wrongfully injured in one. Here are some of the questions you may have:

If I was struck by a car as a pedestrian in NYC, will I qualify for financial compensation?

To determine whether you’ll qualify for compensation as an injured pedestrian, we’ll have to assess the circumstances of your accident. For example, if you were jaywalking when you were struck by a moving vehicle, you may not have a valid claim, as you technically were in violation of the law. However, if a motorist swerved off the road and crashed into you as a result, there’s a very strong chance that you will, in fact, have a valid personal injury claim. As long as we can prove that the accident was not your fault and was the direct result of another person’s negligence, you should recover financial compensation in your personal injury claim.

How can a lawyer help me recover compensation after an accident?

If you were hurt, you may wonder whether you truly need an attorney to file an injury claim on your behalf. You should do so, and for several reasons. To start, an attorney knows the ins and outs of personal injury law. An attorney with experience also has an in-depth knowledge of how to negotiate with insurance companies to achieve favorable settlements. Additionally, an attorney can work to uncover any evidence that may be relevant to your case. Ultimately, it’s always best to proceed with a competent lawyer in your corner.
