Previous posts here have mentioned that pedestrian accidents are all too common on the streets of New York City. In the last year, many Staten Island pedestrians were killed or seriously injured after being hit by a car.
The expenses resulting from an accident can add up very quickly. Medical bills, repair costs and lost wages can leave a family struggling to make ends meet. As a result, victims and their families are forced to worry about the never-ending bills and are unable to focus on their recovery.
One possible solution to this would be to file a lawsuit against the negligent driver responsible for the accident. This lawsuit may give families an opportunity to recover damages from someone who should be held liable. At our law firm we represent plaintiffs in pedestrian accident cases. This usually involves the collection of police reports, witness statements and other information to determine the facts of the case and give our clients a realistic assessment of what could possibly be recovered.
If the case goes to court, our law firm attempts to figure out the best way to present our clients’ cases to give them the best chance of recovery. If it is in our clients’ best interest to accept a settlement offer, we try to guide clients through that process as well. Pedestrian accident cases require focus on the details of the accident to ensure that no stone is left unturned. At our law firm we attempt to ensure that our clients don’t miss any crucial facts.
