Pedestrian Accident FAQ
What are some common types of pedestrian accident cases?
At William Mattar Law Offices, we handle a variety of New York pedestrian accident cases, such as:
- Failure to Yield to Stopped Traffic
When vehicles stop to yield for pedestrians in crosswalks, drivers approaching from behind the stopped vehicles may fail to see people crossing the street.
- Intersectional or Crosswalk Accidents
Drivers must use care to avoid colliding with pedestrians, which includes yielding right of way at intersections, driveways, and crosswalks.
- Reverse Collisions
Accidents can happen in parking lots or alleys when drivers fail to see pedestrians before reversing their vehicles.

What are some common types of pedestrian injuries?
Several types of injuries can result from pedestrian accidents, including:
- Broken Bones
Broken arms, legs, ribs, and other bones often result from pedestrian impacts with cars, trucks, or motorcycles.
- Spinal Injuries
Spinal discs can rupture or move out of place when vehicles strike pedestrians, causing severe pain and loss of mobility.

TBIs resulting from pedestrian crashes can be severe and life-altering, affecting vision, hearing, and behavior.
