What Damages Can You Sue For After A Pedestrian Accident?
Pedestrian accidents often result in serious bodily harm. Financial compensation could be a big step forward in your recovery journey. If someone else causes your accident or a negligent party is responsible for your damages, Bendix Law will fight for you. We'll ensure that you receive fair compensation for damages such as:
Lost wages and income
Loss of limbs
Emotional and psychological trauma
Insurance companies or at-fault persons will oftentimes attempt to downplay the severity of the damage caused by the accident. Don't let them manipulate you into agreeing to the least acceptable offer. Contact Bendix Law. Let us represent your interest and claim what's rightfully yours.
How Long Do You Have Before Your Personal Injury Claim Will Become Invalid?
You'll only have 3 years from the day of the incident to file a personal injury case and seek compensation. If it's been more than 3 years after the incident, you lose your right to seek compensation. However, if the accident was fatal and led to death, you'll only have 2 years to file for action.
When working with Bendix Law, you don't have to worry about losing the right to compensation. With over 30 years of experience, we are well aware of the time-bound nature of pedestrian accident claims. Contact us we'll work quickly to ensure that your case gets the necessary attention.
How Often Do Pedestrian Accidents Occur?
Pedestrians are the road users who are most exposed to danger from car crashes. There's nothing to protect them from being sent flying into surrounding objects. Often, the injuries sustained from these types of incidents are usually fatal or life-changing. According to NYC crash reports, 2,200 pedestrians lost their lives from roadside accidents between 2004 and 2018. Furthermore, the NYPD reported more than 183 pedestrian accidents in September 2018.
Despite the efforts of the government and the introduction of the zero action plan, pedestrian accidents have become more frequent. During the post-covid era, these incidents have risen by about 22% because many people have opted to avoid public transportation to avoid reinfection. What's even more saddening is that 95% of fatal pedestrian accidents are caused by errors from motor vehicle drivers.
Bendix Law understands the amount of risk that you're exposed to when you walk along the streets of Brooklyn and the surrounding boroughs. That's why we've put numerous measures in place to ensure that you're protected from careless drivers and cyclists. If you get injured from a roadside accident, contact us immediately and we'll help you build a solid case.
What Are The Common Causes Of Pedestrian Accidents?
Roadside accidents involving pedestrians are usually caused by several reasons. Often, these reasons are not associated with the pedestrians themselves. Distracted driving is one of the most common causes of pedestrian accidents in New York. In September 2020 alone, a record high of 846 drivers collided with pedestrians.
The following are some of the common causes of pedestrian roadside accidents:
Failure to obey traffic laws and signals
Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
Poor road conditions
