New York City pedestrians and bicyclists are skilled at navigating the streets and crosswalks while avoiding traffic and other hazards. Although most of us are extremely careful and aware of our surroundings, serious injuries can occur when:
- A pedestrian is struck by any vehicle making a stop
- A pedestrian is hit by a vehicle in a crosswalk
- A bicyclist is cut off by a car, truck or bus
- A motorist runs a red light, fails to yield or leaves the scene of the accident
- A commercial driver is in a rush and neglects to drive safely
Many accidents that injure pedestrians and bicyclists are caused by the negligence of motorists who are driving too fast, not paying attention, distracted by phones or impaired behind the wheel. If you or a member of your family was hit by a vehicle while walking or riding a bicycle, you may be entitled to compensation for medical costs, lost income, pain and suffering or other damages.
