Crosswalk Pedestrian Accident Lawsuits in NY

Pedestrian Rights and Crosswalk Safety in New York

As a pedestrian in New York, you have the right to cross the street safely at crosswalks. Nonetheless, many drivers are aggressive or reckless, and accidents can still happen. You should remain vigilant, but if you are injured, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.

If You are Injured, Protect Your Rights

It is important that you report your accident. Contact the New York Police Department (NYPD) or county police and file a police report. This report is a crucial piece of evidence in your case, documenting the accident and recording details while it is fresh in your memory. Over time, memory does fade, and having a record as quickly as possible can substantially impact the outcome of your claim.

Gathering Evidence: Building a Strong Pedestrian Accident Case

Gathering evidence is one of the keys to building a strong case. If you can, collect contact information from any witnesses at the scene. Their statements can provide valuable insights into how the accident occurred and who was at fault. If possible, ask them to give you a statement on video, as the information they share will be fresh in their mind. If you call a witness for a deposition months or years later, their memory may not be as fresh, and statements on video can be used to help refresh their recollection.

Additionally, you should take pictures or videos of the accident scene, including traffic signals, street signs, and any property damage. These visuals can serve as powerful evidence to support your claim. Our attorneys can use this evidence to build a strong case on your behalf.

Medical Attention and Documentation: A Critical Step

Even if your injuries seem minor, it is important to get checked by a healthcare professional. Some injuries may not show symptoms right away. Getting a medical evaluation will also provide documentation of your injuries, which is essential for your case.

Keep a record of all medical treatments, prescriptions, and any other related expenses. This documentation is vital in proving the extent of your injuries and their impact on your life. Our attorneys will use this information to seek the compensation you deserve.
