When a pedestrian is involved in a car, truck or motorcycle accident, he or she will almost always suffer a serious injury. While pedestrians are afforded the right of way, they are at the mercy of drivers of all vehicle types.
These injury cases can be intensely complex as a driver’s insurance company may try to blame the injured victim. Adjusters may attempt to collect statements to limit compensation.
Because of this, it is critical that pedestrians who are injured reach out to the strongest legal team available to obtain the compensation to which they are entitled.

An example of our success:
Motor Vehicle Accident — $5 Million Settlement For A Pedestrian Struck By A Commercial Van
The plaintiff, a pedestrian, was crossing the street within the crosswalk when she was struck by a commercial van making a left turn. The plaintiff suffered a traumatic brain injury, was confined to a New York City hospital for three weeks and spent more than a year in rehabilitation. The case was settled on the eve of trial for $5 million enabling the plaintiff to purchase a handicapped-equipped home where she lives comfortably and independently with her husband.
