New York City Pedestrian Accident Lawyers
Seeking Maximum Compensation for Clients in the Bronx, Queens & Brooklyn
Thousands of pedestrians die every year in motor vehicle-related accidents. Another 80,000 are injured by cars, buses, or trucks. Vehicles aren’t the only cause of pedestrian accidents. A poorly maintained property, damaged roadways, and debris all attribute to accidents that injure pedestrians. There are often multiple parties involved in a pedestrian accident, and the defendants’ lawyers will do all they can to shift blame onto the pedestrian or another party.
An experienced lawyer won’t let them succeed. For more than two decades, our New York City pedestrian accident attorneys at Koenigsberg & Associates Law Offices have been winning large awards for these victims. We recently recovered $900,000 for a pedestrian who suffered a leg fracture when he was struck by a car while crossing the street.

Common Pedestrian Accident Injuries
When a human body is struck by thousands of pounds of metal moving at high speeds, the results are often disastrous. Pedestrian accidents often result in the following injuries:
- Broken bones
- Neck and back injuries
- Internal bleeding
- Brain injuries
- Knee damage
- Shoulder injuries
Injuries sustained in pedestrian accidents can be life-changing. Even worse, many pedestrian accidents involve small children and the elderly. If you or a loved one has been injured, you need an accomplished New York City pedestrian accident attorney to identify the responsible parties and bring them to justice.
Determining Who is At Fault for a Pedestrian Accident
Pedestrians are often injured just by walking on a defective sidewalk. When a pedestrian is injured, determining fault can be difficult. Sometimes, it can be proven that the property owner was aware of the problem and neglected to fix it. Knowledgeable New York City pedestrian accident lawyers will tell you that property owners will often try to shift blame to other parties.
The sidewalk outside a store may be the responsibility of the owner, or it may be up to the city to make sure it’s properly maintained. These parties don’t care about the victim’s plight – their goal is to shift blame and avoid responsibility. You need an aggressive NYC attorney fighting for you, working to ensure you are compensated for your pain, suffering, and lost earnings.
