Trucking Pedestrian Accidents
Bronx drivers have a responsibility – one that, unfortunately, not all take seriously – to respect the rights of pedestrians. Accidents involving pedestrians and motor vehicles often involve very serious injuries because pedestrians, no matter how cautious they may be when walking near or across public roadways, are left virtually unprotected when a driver hits them. Everybody knows that the human body is no match for even the smallest of motor vehicles, and the consequences of pedestrian accidents are often devastating.
The Vehicle and Traffic Law (the “VTL”), the body of law that governs the roadways of the Bronx, applies to both drivers and to pedestrians. If you bring a lawsuit involving injuries you suffer as a pedestrian in a motor vehicle accident, you can be certain that the defendant’s attorneys will attempt to place blame on you for your injuries. My team of top-tier Bronx personal injury lawyers will guide you through the litigation process and ensure that you are in a positon to receive full and fair compensation for your injuries if you are injured as a pedestrian in the Bronx or elsewhere in New York City.
Remember, the “No-Fault Insurance Law” still applies even if you are injured in a car or truck accident as a pedestrian. Click Here to learn about how the No-Fault Insurance Law can affect your rights if you or a loved one are injured in a pedestrian accident in the Bronx.
