New York City Pedestrian Accident Attorneys
Were you struck by a vehicle?
New York is a city of pedestrians. Motorists must yield the right of way
and drive with due caution. Nonetheless, pedestrians are at the mercy
of impatient, distracted, or reckless drivers. When a person is hit by
car, he or she is also at the mercy of insurance companies.
At Sullivan & Brill, LLP
, we hold motor vehicle drivers accountable for causing serious injuries.
Our pedestrian accident attorneys have obtained notable recoveries on
behalf of adults and children struck by negligent motorists, by building
a solid case and standing up to insurers.

Experienced Advocacy for Injury Victims
Although drivers must yield to foot traffic, the defense often tries to
blame the victim. If they succeed in establishing comparative negligence
of the pedestrian, the victim's compensation can be reduced accordingly.
Led by trial lawyer Joseph F. Sullivan, our legal team has recovered many
verdicts and settlements in all types of auto accidents, including pedestrian accident cases. One
example of our determined diligence can be found in the $320,000 jury
award for a woman struck by a bicycle crossing Columbus Avenue in New
We know that pedestrians suffer serious and often disabling injuries in
accidents, such as broken bones, spinal cord injury, brain trauma, or
internal injuries. We work with medical professionals and the victim's
family to detail the extent of injury and the needs and losses:
- Medical bills
- Future medical care
- Lost wages
- Future earnings
- Pain and suffering
- Permanent disability or disfigurement
We go to the accident scene to take photos and talk to witnesses. We also
hire accident reconstruction experts in appropriate cases to prove that
the driver was chiefly or solely at fault.
