What can I do if I was struck by a car as a pedestrian?

accident scene

Based on the reputation of our Personal Injury Law Firm, superior results have been obtained for a NY pedestrian who was injured in a car accident without the need for protracted litigation. The following case demonstrates the ability of our attorneys to obtain a swift and speedy resolution of a case while protecting the interests of the client.

LEFT TURN PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENT

Our firm is thrilled to have achieved a $325,000 settlement for our client who was struck by a car as she crossed the street in Westchester, New York. On the day of the incident, our client had just returned home from caring for her elderly mother and decided to take a walk around the neighborhood. As our client was crossing Mamaroneck Road (at Park Road), an intersection with no crosswalk, the defendant driver carelessly made a left-hand turn, struck our client, and knocked her to the ground.Shortly after the incident, an ambulance was called to the scene and took our client to the hospital. After our client underwent radiological imaging, she was diagnosed with a tibial plateau fracture of her left knee, but did not require surgery.

AN EXPERIENCED NEW YORK PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENT ATTORNEY CAN HELP YOU SETTLE YOUR CASE IN A SPEEDY AND EFFECTIVE MANNER

After being contacted by the client, we immediately commenced an investigation into the incident and were able to show that our client did nothing to cause the collision – and that the driver was completely at fault. Once it was clear that our client’s injuries did not require surgery, we contacted the insurance company and after many discussions, an offer was made to settle the case for $325,000. This was an excellent result given the fact that our client did not require surgery, and is indicative of the respect insurance companies have for our firm.
