Summertime in New York is a great time to be out and about with friends and family. But, as you walk around this summer, you should be aware of the risks you face as a pedestrian.

Therefore, pedestrian accidents can cause serious injuries that may result in years of treatment and rehabilitation. Even after treatment, some people will never be the same again. The sad reality is that many pedestrians do not survive after being hit by a car, leaving their families devastated.
