Common Causes of Pedestrian Accidents
Although every personal injury case involving a person on foot being hit by a motor vehicle has its own set of unique facts that require investigation and painstaking attention to detail, statistics show that many pedestrian accidents are caused by one or more forms of negligence by the driver of the vehicle, including:
- Driver inattention to road conditions
- Driver disregard of traffic controls
- Driving at unsafe speeds
- Using alcohol or drugs
- Using a cellular device while driving
- Turning at an intersection without a clear view of the road
- Driver inexperience
Why the Law Office of James Trainor, P.C.?
The insurance companies who pay expensive lawyers to defend negligent drivers, no matter how egregious their behavior was, will do everything in their power to make a case that it was the pedestrian, not the driver, who is at fault for the accident and injuries. At the Law Office of James Trainor, P.C., we have seen a litany of defenses in pedestrian knock-down cases, including defenses that the pedestrian ran into the moving vehicle; the pedestrian did not have the right of way; the claimed injuries existed before the accident; the claimed injuries are not serious enough to warrant any money recovery; and worse.
The law is a complicated subject even when common sense tells us that a driver has done something wrong. To avoid having to answer for their insured driver’s unsafe behavior, insurance company lawyers will raise just about any defense to dodge responsibility for paying for your injuries, medical bills, and lost wages. You need a seasoned New York City pedestrian accident lawyer to represent your interests and protect you from the insult that the negligent driver, his insurance company, and attorneys will hurl at you—namely, that you are the one to blame for your injuries.
