Hiring a Garden City Lawyer Handling Pedestrian Accident Cases to Represent You
When you work with a lawyer from our team, you do not have to concern yourself with paying any fees upfront. Our firm works on a contingency-fee-basis. Rather than charging you at the start of your case, our lawyers take fees from any recovery that we can obtain for you.
If you do not recover, we do not take payment. Because we work on a contingency fee model, you will not have to risk your funds before we represent you. We also offer free case consultations.
Navigating the New York Statute of Limitations
According to the New York personal injury statute of limitations put forth in CVP §214, you generally have a period of up to three years after an incident to take legal action by filing a lawsuit.
However, some notable exceptions can shorten your window of opportunity, such as suing a municipality or when pursuing a wrongful death action. By contacting our team right away after a pedestrian accident, you can rely on us to begin representing you as you begin the road to recovery.
Our team understands the pressure you are likely facing after a pedestrian injury. When you work with us, we will strive to take this pressure off of you. After all, your return to health is the most important thing when facing a personal injury and other losses.
Determining Liability and Eligibility for Potential Financial Compensation
Our team will investigate the incident to establish a liable party and hold them accountable in building your case. Several details can place liability on one or more parties when pedestrians suffer harm.
For example, the following are all common sources of liability in pedestrian accidents in New York:
- Driver errors
- Walking conditions
- Road conditions
- Sidewalk hazards
As the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) shows, in the year 2019 alone, 268 pedestrians required medical treatment in emergency rooms for non-fatal crash-related injuries.
Statistics like these show how devastating pedestrian-related accidents can be for those involved. The last thing you deserve is to suffer further legal and financial trouble after sustaining injuries in (or losing a loved one to) an accident.
