Holding Negligent Drivers Accountable For Your Injuries
Drivers have a responsibility to be careful around pedestrians. When they are not, their negligence can cause serious and even fatal injuries. If you were injured or lost a loved one in a pedestrian accident, you may be entitled to compensation from the responsible party.At the law firm of Larkin Ingrassia, LLP, our pedestrian accident lawyers pursue personal injury and wrongful death claims on behalf of accident victims and their families. We hold negligent drivers accountable for:
- Ignoring crosswalk signs: In New York, pedestrians have the right of way at marked crosswalks, including midblock crosswalks. Drivers who speed through crosswalks, instead of stopping and waiting are putting pedestrians at serious risk.
- Running red lights and stop signs: Drivers who ignore red lights, stop signs and other traffic signals are also putting pedestrians at risk and can be held accountable.
- Speeding: Drivers who are driving too fast may not be able to stop in time to avoid hitting pedestrians. Even if you were jaywalking when you were hit by a car, you may be entitled to compensation if the driver who hit you was speeding.
Prepared To Stand Up To Insurance Companies
If you were injured or lost a family member in a pedestrian accident, our attorneys will carefully investigate your case to determine who was at fault. We will stand up to the insurance companies to pursue the full compensation you deserve.
