Walking and jogging have always been a part of everyone’s daily life. Whether it’s jogging rounds or buying the grocery from around the corner, we do it daily and sometimes multiple times in a day. From walking with kids to senior citizens stretching their legs, all enjoy a good walk. Whether you are walking on a sidewalk or crossing the road, an accident can happen anywhere to anyone.

It can be due to the vehicle driver’s negligence or breaking of the law. It can also be the pedestrian’s fault, like crossing the road at a red or stoplight, wearing dark-colored clothes in low visibility conditions. Accidents can also happen due to falling or dropping from overloaded trucks. Every accident is unique. If you or someone you know has been in an accident, it’s vital to know your compensation rights after the accident.

FAQs

What are the key reasons for Pedestrian Accidents?

Pedestrian accidents occur for several reasons. Sometimes it’s either party’s fault or sometimes both are at fault. A few of the leading causes of accidents are listed below.

  • Distracted Drivers: Talking, texting on the cellphones, or eating while driving has been the leading causes of accidents.
  • Speeding Drivers: In a busy place like Long Island, people are always in a hurry. Drivers speeding to reach their destination is more than just a traffic violation. Speeding cars can cost someone their lives. 
  • Bad Weather: At times, due to heavy snow, fog, or rains, the visibility drastically reduces. It also creates slippery roads. Thus, even when pedestrians are spotted, stopping the vehicle becomes a challenge. 
  • Intoxicated Driving: Driving under the influence is also a leading reason for accidents. Alcohol impairs vision, hand-eye coordination, and decision-making ability.
  • Reversing Cars: While reversing cars, people often do not see if someone like a child is under the car or in poorly lit parking lots where the pedestrian is not completely visible. 
  • Distracted Pedestrian: Sometimes, people are in a hurry and are jaywalking, talking on the phone, or eating. There are several reasons why a pedestrian can get distracted, leading to an accident
What type of injuries are seen in a pedestrian accident?

A pedestrian is completely unprotected from the impact with no protection. A speeding vehicle can cause significant damage to the victim. Faster the car, the more the impact and injuries. Injuries like bone fracture, spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, internal bleeding, and loss of a limb can happen as a result of the accident.

Will I get the compensation if I am partially at fault?

There can be cases where a pedestrian can be partially at fault if he or she ignores the stop sign, not using the crosswalk, is distracted walking (on the phone or eating), or is drunk and walking on the road.

In such cases, under New York’s pure comparative fault law, the pedestrian can get the compensation accordingly. For example, if the victim was 50% at fault and the compensation amount is $100,000, then the victim only gets $50,000 as per the law.

What is the timeframe in which I can file for Pedestrian Accident Compensation in Long Island?

According to the NY State’s statute of limitation, you have thirty-six months from the day of the incident to file for a claim. Exceptions to the rule are rare. The days after the accident can be painful and leave you confused about what to do next. While you are recovering from the injury, you can connect with our pedestrian accident lawyer in Long Island to initiate the claim process within the timeframe.

How will 1-800-HURT-511 help me after the accident?

There is a string of activities that should be done before you get the compensation. Accident cases are not always straightforward where defendants accept the blame or the insurance company pays the settlement. There will be accusations and counter-accusation, exchange of documents, and negotiations.

  • Gathering Evidence – Evidence forms a vital part of the investigation. Camera footages, witness testimony, accident site photographs, medical reports are a few of the valuable evidence pieces that your attorney will gather for the case.
  • Coordination – Your pedestrian accidents lawyer will help to coordinate between medical professionals and insurance companies. In case there are multiple parties involved in the accident, coordination becomes a challenge, with each party having its own lawyers and insurance company.
  • Negotiation – Insurance companies will always put the blame on you or downplay the accident to lower the compensation. The defendant’s lawyers will counter accuse you of negligence. Our expert lawyers are well aware of these maneuvers and will successfully defend you against them. 

Apart from others, these were some of the primary responsibilities of a pedestrian accident attorney. With so much involved, we will fight for the best compensation for you.

Я был пассажиром UBER, и машину сзади сбил грузовой фургон. Я позвонил по номеру 1-800-HURT-511, так как друг уже имел с ними дело, и я был рад, что я это сделал. Мой адвокат был предельно профессиональным и агрессивным при необходимости . Он был прозрачен с самого начала и не усложнял дела без надобности.
