Hit by a Car in a Crosswalk?

Your Rights as a New York Pedestrian

Under Article 27 § 1151 of New York State’s traffic laws, when a pedestrian is in a crosswalk where traffic-control signals are not in place or not in operation, the driver of a vehicle shall yield the right of way. Anyone who’s ever visited The Big Apple knows that drivers don’t always respect this law.

Damages in a New York Pedestrian Accident

If you or a family member has been hit by a motor vehicle and suffered injuries, you could be able to pursue any of the following damages:

  • Medical bills
  • Pain and suffering
  • Costs of physical therapy and rehabilitation
  • Home and vehicle modifications (such as wheelchair ramps, lifts, etc.)
  • Permanent injury or disability
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of career or earning ability
  • Loss of a limb
  • Punitive damages
  • Wrongful death damages if a family or other loved one is killed in a pedestrian accident

When your body is hit by several tons or more of galvanized steel, you’re going to suffer some serious injuries. To get the settlement you deserve, it is crucial that contact a skilled New York injury attorney.
