An Overview Of Pedestrian Knockdowns


11White Plains, Yonkers, the Bronx, Manhattan, Queens, and the surrounding areas are crowded with people trying to get from place to place. The population is soaring, and so is the number of vehicles on the roads. Unfortunately, this places the New York metro area pedestrians in jeopardy. Many motorists do not take the time to abide by laws established to protect pedestrians. A vehicle colliding with a pedestrian may leave them seriously or fatally injured.

If you have been injured in a pedestrian accident, turn to a White Plains personal injury lawyer at The Law Offices of Jason B. Kessler. We are experienced advocates for those who have been injured in many different types of personal injury situations, including pedestrian accidents. Our firm is dedicated to helping you pursue the compensation you need and deserve for the catastrophic injuries you have suffered or for the wrongful death of a loved one. We can file a claim for you and negotiate with the insurance company to make sure you receive the maximum monetary compensation possible for your physical injury and emotional suffering.

Some of the situations in which a pedestrian becomes the victim of a collision are:

  • Failure for a car, truck or other vehicle to yield for a pedestrian in a crosswalk
  • Failure of a car to stop before turning at a red light
  • Failure of a car to obey traffic laws or posted signs

Hit and Run
The driver may leave the scene in any of the above situations. We are committed to helping clients get the necessary medical attention while investigating the case. By involving law enforcement and the public, we may be able to find out who hit you and hold them liable for civil damages and even criminal penalties.

Minor Accidents, Major Injuries
Even a seemingly minor accident can result in major injuries. If you have suffered broken bones, brain injury, spinal cord injury or other injuries and have been incapacitated or disabled, we can help you seek compensation for the extensive medical care that your injuries may require. We also handle wrongful death cases in which a client has lost a loved one due to a pedestrian accident.
