When someone else’s negligence causes you harm, they should held responsible and required to pay you for the harm they caused. Our Manhattan based law firm has been representing accident victims for fifteen years and we can help you too.
If you are a pedestrian struck by an e-bike, a truck, a bus or other vehicle the first and most important thing you can do is obtain immediate medical care. From strictly a health perspective this is critical, but with respect to a cause of action you may have against a wrongdoer, it shows that you were injured form the accident, and not some subsequent or intervening event.
Pedestrian accidents usually involve some of the worst injuries we see, simply because they are not provided any of the protections that vehicle occupants are.
The insurance company for the offending party will spend boatloads of money defending their insured client in an attempt to avoid having to pay you a cent. This is why you need to have strong legal representation in your corner just to level the playing field.
If everything is properly documented and you were not at-fault for the accident, you should be eligible to collect damages for:
- Pain and suffering;
- Unpaid medical bills and associated expenses;
- Lost wages;
- Job retraining if you cannot return to your previous line of work due to the injuries you have sustained;
