Why You Should Hire a Pedestrian Accident Attorney
New York State has complex insurance and traffic laws governing pedestrian-vehicle accidents. It is vital for pedestrian victims to have an attorney representing them who is knowledgeable about these laws and experienced in navigating them.
Additionally, there are time limits dictating how long injured pedestrians have to take steps towards receiving compensation. Failure to submit properly filled-out documentation within a certain time period can prevent you from obtaining compensation.
We care about fighting for your rights when you have been injured due to someone else’s negligence. Call us today to schedule an appointment with a Syracuse pedestrian accident lawyer as soon as possible.
Pedestrians Most at Risk for Being Struck By Vehicles
Some people over 65 years of age account for pedestrian deaths in the U.S. Children are also most at risk for being hit by vehicles. Pedestrians walking while intoxicated are also at risk, especially when they are walking at night in heavy traffic.
Causes of Pedestrian Accidents
Generally, pedestrians have the right of way in crosswalks are. Unfortunately, some drivers think they have the right of way regardless of their location or the situation. These aggressive drivers disobey traffic laws, engage in distracted driving, insist on speeding and may drive while intoxicated. When pedestrians are struck by vehicles, they absorb the impact fully, frequently suffering serious fractures and internal injuries. With nothing protecting their bodies, they are at the mercy of a two-ton vehicle and a negligent driver who should be held accountable.
