New York City Fatal Pedestrian Accident Attorney

Pedestrian Death Lawyer in NYC

Pedestrian fatalities in New York City are a true public hazard. The fast-paced lifestyle of millions of residents and visitors in combination with traffic congestion no doubt contributes to the many deaths of people on foot throughout the city. Government statistics tell us that 2,299 pedestrians lost their lives in the city between 2000 and 2013. This included eight deaths involving walkers or joggers struck by bicycles. All others were caused by collisions with motor vehicles (cars, trucks, buses, and motorcycles).

If your loved one has joined these other pedestrian fatality victims in this year’s statistics, please know that at The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny, we understand the uniqueness of your loss. Your mother, father, husband, wife, son, or daughter, once a vital part of your family, has lost his or her life, and your family is forever changed. We understand that your loss goes far beyond financial aspects — yet we understand that financial losses are part of what you must cope with.

Legally speaking, a wrongful death claim can hold a liable party responsible. The liable party in a traffic death case is usually the driver of a vehicle that knocked down or ran over a pedestrian. A successful case will tell the courts and the world that the driver deprived a pedestrian of life and a family of a loved one. The financial part — the settlement award — can help you cover funeral expenses, replace lost wages, and acknowledge intangible losses, including:

  • Your loved one’s pain and suffering leading up to death
  • Your emotional losses, including loss of companionship

If a hit-and-run accident caused the death of your loved one, there may be other available sources of compensation. A skilled pedestrian accident lawyer at The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny can help you discover those and tap into them for the sake of your recovery from the difficult loss of a close family member.
