Pedestrians often have the right-of-way on New York City and Queens' roads, streets, and intersections. Our New York City and Queens pedestrian accident lawyers will hold negligent drivers accountable for their failure to exercise reasonable care with respect to pedestrians, who have the right-of-way. If you were or may have been seriously injured by a car or motor vehicle while walking, please contact our New York City and Queens pedestrian accident lawyers as soon as possible to preserve your claims and get you the compensation you deserve under the law.
New York City and Queens automobile drivers can easily forget the fact that they share the roads and streets with walkers / pedestrians as well. A New York City or Queens automobile driver's failure to yield the right of way and safely stop for pedestrians at stop signs, traffic lights, and crosswalks can subject the negligent driver to liability for the pedestrian's injuries. If you have been injured by a motor vehicle as a pedestrian or otherwise, please contact our New York City and Queens pedestrian accident attorneys immediately, so that your rights to obtain compensation for your injuries do not expire.
In New York, when there is no traffic control signal, drivers must yield the right-of-way to pedestrians, particularly if a pedestrian is in a crosswalk, or there is a potential danger to the pedestrian. Additionally in New York, the driver of a vehicle, when entering or exiting from an alleyway, building, private road or driveway must yield the right-of-way to any pedestrian on a sidewalk. Please contact our New York City and Queens pedestrian accident attorneys right away for a free consultation.
New York City and Queens pedestrian car accidents usually result with the pedestrian sustaining the more severe injuries than the driver or occupants of the automobile. Serious injuries ranging from broken bones through up to and including death can and will occur as the result of a motor vehicle accident with a pedestrian, who has no protection from injury. Please call our New York City and Queens pedestrian accident attorneys today for a free consultation if you have been injured in a pedestrian accident.
