Pedestrian Accidents

New York City Accident Attorneys
Advocating for Injured Pedestrians and Bicyclists

Some groups estimate that more than 250 pedestrians are killed in vehicle accidents each year in New York City. Many more pedestrians are injured when struck by cars, taxis, buses and trucks. Unfortunately a large percentage of pedestrian accidents involve children and elderly individuals.

The accident and injury attorneys at Ellis Law have been helping injured people throughout New York State for over 20 years. We focus exclusively on personal injury and wrongful death litigation. If you have been injured in a pedestrian accident, or a loved one was killed when struck by a bus or other motor vehicle, we are here to help. Call the Injury Answerline at 1-800-LAW-7777 for experienced legal help.

Recovering for Serious Injury and Death Caused by Negligent Drivers

The enormous force of the impact when a pedestrian is hit by a car or other vehicle causes serious injuries, such as spinal cord injury, paralysis, brain injury, and amputation. The accident lawyers at Ellis Law have obtained millions of dollars for seriously injured clients. We have the experience, resources, and hard-hitting approach needed to aggressively protect accident victims and fight for the compensation they need and deserve.

Causes of Pedestrian Accidents, Injuries and Deaths

Some estimate that almost 90 percent of pedestrian accidents are caused by careless drivers who don't yield the right of way in a crosswalk, or simply fail to see a pedestrian until it is too late to stop. Frequently, the cause of a pedestrian vs. vehicle accident is:

  • Dangerous intersection
  • Turning vehicle strikes person in crosswalk
  • Drunk driving accident
  • Failure of driver to stop for a red light or stop sign
  • Speeding and reckless driving
  • Failure to see pedestrians or bicyclist at night
  • Hit-and-run accident

Pedestrians and bicyclists have a right to travel the streets and roads of New York safely. If you were injured by a negligent driver while walking on the sidewalk, in the crosswalk, or at an intersection, we can help. Call Ellis Law today at 1-800-LAW-7777 to schedule an appointment with a skilled accident and injury lawyer.
