New York City: Dangerous for Pedestrians and Bicycles
In New York City, almost 30 people per day are struck in pedestrian accidents (according to 2004 data from the CUNY Institute for Transportation Systems).
Bicycling on the streets and sidewalks of New York can be just as dangerous.
But of the thousands of people injured every year in pedestrian or bicycle accidents, how many of them receive adequate financial compensation for their injuries?
In the sad cases where a pedestrian or bicycle accident results in death, how often are the victim's families adequately compensated?
Dependable and Dynamic Legal Help After Pedestrian and Bicycle Accidents
If you have been injured in an accident as a pedestrian or bicycle rider due to the negligence of another person, you may seek financial compensation for your medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering. If a family member has been killed in a fatal pedestrian or bicycle accident, surviving family members have the right to compensation in a wrongful death lawsuit.
With help from a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer, you have a better chance to recover all the compensation to which you are entitled. Without guidance from an attorney, you run the risk of accepting a lowball insurance settlement — or receiving no compensation at all.
