Manhattan Pedestrian Accident Lawyers
Risk of Personal Injury in Pedestrian Accidents
A pedestrian has no protection against a car, truck, bus, or motorcycle and is at the mercy of a driver who is not paying attention to the road. Injuries can be severe and require extensive medical treatment. If you, a family member or friend have been involved in a pedestrian accident, then locate a competent Manhattan personal injury lawyer as soon as you can. It is vital that the scene of the accident is investigated and all evidence and witness statements are collected. The more time that goes by, the greater the chance that an important witness or vital piece of evidence will be gone, so act quickly.

Pedestrian Accidents & Negligence
Pedestrian accidents are more common than one might think. Whether the accident occurs on a crosswalk or in front of a store or on the sidewalk the results can be catastrophic. If your pedestrian accident involved a moving vehicle, it is almost certain that injuries will occur. Pedestrians are frequently struck when it is dark because of low visibility at night, making it is very difficult to see a pedestrian walking across a street.
Pedestrian accidents are frequently caused by:
- Distracted drivers
- Driving under the influence
- Drivers making turns without checking the crosswalk
- Drivers talking or texting on the phone
Many pedestrian accidents occur because the driver that struck them was driving under the influence of alcohol. It could have resulted because of poor road conditions which can cause a vehicle to lose control. Regardless of the conditions of the accident, the driver of the vehicle who has struck the pedestrian is almost always at fault. Whether the driver was drinking, texting, talking on the phone, looking at other traffic or just not paying attention, negligence can likely be attributed to them.
