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.
Since 2001, our New York City accident lawyers at Sullivan & Brill, LLP have been helping New Yorkers obtain just compensation for injuries sustained when a pedestrian is hit by a car, truck or other vehicle.
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 York City.
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.
