Over half of all the traffic-related deaths in New York City happen to pedestrians who are hit by a vehicle, and over three fourths of the time, the accident is caused by the driver of a private car. This means that just walking around in New York City can be dangerous, even though it’s considered in general a popular way of getting around town.
If you or a loved one have been injured in a pedestrian accident, one of the first things that should be done after seeking medical assistance is to call a pedestrian accident lawyer. This should be done even before calling an insurance company and letting your lawyer do the talking is a wise plan. The legal professionals at the Law Offices of G. Oliver Koppell & Associates will help you through the legal maze of suing for compensation while you focus on fully recovering from your injuries sustained after a pedestrian accident.
