NYC Pedestrian Accident Lawyers
Struck by a Car in a Crosswalk or Sidewalk? Call Today.

New York City is one of the busiest in the United States when it comes to foot traffic. People of all ages and backgrounds walk to their various destinations throughout the boroughs – many New Yorkers don’t even own cars. Unfortunately, the high volume of pedestrians sharing the road with motorists increases the likelihood of an accident – often caused as a result of negligence.

Distracted, drunk, or simply careless, a driver may hit an unsuspecting pedestrian in a crosswalk or even on a sidewalk. Even at relatively low speeds, these incidents can cause catastrophic, life-changing injuries. They may even prove fatal.

As New York City pedestrian accident attorneys, we at Silbowitz, Garafola, Silbowitz, Schatz & Frederick, L.L.P. are here to help if you or someone you love was hit by a car. The insurance company is unlikely to pay your claim fairly and in a timely manner – they are far more likely to try to offer you a low settlement. You may even find that the blame of the accident is placed on your shoulders. Do not let yourself be a victim again. Put a skilled lawyer in your corner and you can pursue the level of compensation that will help you put the pieces of your life back together, while holding the at-fault driver or other party responsible.

Call (646) 681-7055 today to schedule a free case evaluation. We promise to listen to all of your concerns, and will never rush you to make a decision.

Liability for New York City Pedestrian Accidents

The fault, or legal responsibility, in a New York City pedestrian accident may lie with a negligent driver or even with a government entity or contractor responsible for maintaining safe pedestrian walkways and traffic lights in one of the busiest cities in the world. It may take a detailed investigation and review of all physical evidence and witness testimony, as well as a reconstruction of the accident, to determine and prove fault.

Our pedestrian accident lawyers take on cases across New York City involving:

  • Drunk drivers
  • Distracted drivers (talking on the phone, texting, eating, etc.)
  • Drivers under the influence of prescription, illegal, or over-the-counter drugs
  • Defective pedestrian walkways, crosswalks, or sidewalks
  • Defective or missing traffic/pedestrian signals
  • Pedestrian accidents involving Uber/Lyft drivers
