There are more than 16,000 pedestrian accidents each year in New York State, according to the NYS Department of Motor Vehicles. Long Island has some of the most dangerous roads for pedestrians, including Hempstead Turnpike, Sunrise Highway and Middle Country Road. There have been some major improvements to roads on Long Island to make them safer for pedestrians—including longer lights, islands in the center of streets, and walk lights that count down the time left for pedestrians—but more are still needed.
Pedestrians rarely come out of these accidents without serious injuries, and we have helped many get the compensation they need to pay for their recovery and care for themselves and their family without worrying about lost wages and medical bills.
If you or a loved one has been struck by a motorist who failed to follow traffic laws, you may have a very good case. We have helped pedestrians seek damages against motorists who:
- Failed to yield right of way
- Ignored a stop sign
- Drove through a red light
- Made a left or right turn without yielding to pedestrians
- Were speeding
- Were driving recklessly
- Hit a pedestrian in a crosswalk
