Why Should I Call a Morrisania Bronx Pedestrian Accident Lawyer?

When you’re walking down the street in New York City, you have very little to protect you if you’re involved in an accident. This is why pedestrians tend to suffer extremely painful and debilitating injuries. These injuries often require extensive (and very expensive) medical treatment. It can take weeks – or even months – to get back on your feet. Even then, you might not have fully recovered. You may even be faced with a lifelong disability because you got hit by a car.

If someone else was careless and caused you to get hurt, they should be responsible for the consequences of their negligence, as well. While you may be entitled to compensation, getting money in your hands can be a challenge. Insurance companies will fight you every step of the way. They’ll try to drive down the value of your claim, or deny you the money you deserve in its entirety. Whoever is responsible for your injuries will inevitably try to shift some or all of the blame to you.

  • Stand up to insurance companies and force them to consider your injury claim seriously

What Causes Pedestrian Accidents in Morrisania Bronx?

Pedestrians have historically had a tough time walking through the streets of the Bronx. The sidewalks are congested with pedestrian foot traffic and now there are electric scooters and e-bikes that also take over the sidewalks as well. Many different factors have contributed to pedestrian accidents over the years. Drivers in the city tend to be responsible for many of these injury-causing and fatal pedestrian accidents.

Some of the causes of pedestrian accidents include:

  • Distracted driving
  • Aggressive drivers eager to get through an intersection as a light changes from yellow to red
  • Making unsafe or illegal turns at intersections
  • Failing to yield the right of way to pedestrians
  • Fatigued drivers, and
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Drivers are not always responsible for pedestrian accidents in New York. Other causes include hazardous road conditions, damaged sidewalks, limited visibility due to bad weather or darkness, and defective products.

Determining why your accident happened is a critical step in identifying who’s to blame. Call our New York City pedestrian accident lawyers for immediate assistance after you’ve been hit by a car.
