What to Do After a Pedestrian Accident

After a pedestrian accident, it is crucial to take the right steps to protect your rights. The insurance company will be looking for any reason to dispute your claim, so it is important to be careful about what you say and do.

After a pedestrian accident, you should:

  • Seek medical attention
  • Call the police
  • Get information from the driver
  • Get contact information from witnesses
  • Take photos of the accident scene
  • Call a pedestrian accident lawyer

When you meet with an attorney, bring any evidence you have related to the accident. This includes the police report, your medical records, and the contact information for witnesses. Your attorney will use this evidence to build the strongest possible case on your behalf.

Who Is Liable for a Pedestrian Accident?

Many pedestrian accidents are caused by careless and negligent drivers. When this is the case, the driver can be held liable for the victim’s injuries and other losses.

Some of the most common causes of pedestrian accidents include:

  • Speeding
  • Failure to yield the right of way
  • Failure to stop at a stop sign or red light
  • Distracted driving
  • Drunk driving

In some cases, the pedestrian may be partially at fault for the accident. For example, if the pedestrian was crossing the street outside of a crosswalk, the driver may argue that the pedestrian was jaywalking. New York is a pure comparative fault state, so a pedestrian who is partially at fault for the accident can still recover compensation. However, their compensation will be reduced by their percentage of fault.

Compensation Available to Injured Pedestrians

If you were injured in a pedestrian accident, or while riding a scooter or bicycle, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. At Koenigsberg & Associates Law Offices, we are committed to helping you recover the full, fair compensation you are owed.

We can help you recover compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Property damage
  • Physical pain
  • Emotional suffering
  • Disfigurement
  • Disability
  • Reduced quality of life
  • Loss of consortium

Our Queens, NY pedestrian accident attorneys have extensive experience in these cases and a proven track record of success. We know how to build the strongest possible case on your behalf, and we are prepared to fight for you at trial.

How Long Do I Have to File a Lawsuit?

In New York, the statute of limitations for personal injury lawsuits is three years from the date of the accident. If you do not file a lawsuit within three years, you will lose your right to recover compensation. 

If you have lost a loved one in a pedestrian accident, you may be entitled to file a wrongful death lawsuit. The statute of limitations for wrongful death lawsuits is generally two years from the date of death. 

It is important to consult with a lawyer as soon as possible after a pedestrian accident. An attorney can help you understand your rights and options, and they can make sure you do not miss any important deadlines.
