Pedestrian Accident Lawyers in New York

Pursuing Claims Against Negligent Drivers

Drivers have a responsibility to be especially careful around pedestrians. When they are not, they can cause serious and even fatal injuries. If you've been injured or have lost a loved one in a pedestrian accident, you may be entitled to compensation from the responsible party.

At the law firm of Larkin, Ingrassia & Tepermayster, LLP, our pedestrian accident lawyers pursue personal injury and wrongful death claims on behalf of accident victims and their families. We hold negligent drivers accountable for major errors such as the following:

  • Ignoring crosswalk signs: In New York, pedestrians have the right of way at marked crosswalks, including midblock crosswalks. Drivers who speed through crosswalks instead of stopping and waiting are putting pedestrians at serious risk.
  • Running red lights and stop signs: Drivers who ignore red lights, stop signs and other traffic signals are also putting pedestrians at risk and can be held accountable.
  • Speeding: Drivers who are driving too fast may not be able to stop in time to avoid hitting pedestrians. Even if you were jaywalking when you were hit by a car, you may be entitled to compensation if the driver who hit you was speeding.

If you have been injured or have lost a family member in a bicycle accident, our attorneys will carefully investigate the facts of your case in order to determine who was at fault. We are prepared to stand up to the insurance companies to pursue the full compensation you deserve.
