New York Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

In New York City, the streets belong to pedestrians as much as or more than drivers. Millions of New Yorkers do not even own a car. The traffic laws give the right of way to people on foot or two wheels, and pedestrians have the expectation that drivers will yield.

In reality, the roads are filled with drivers who are impatient, aggressive, distracted, or careless. Pedestrians, unfortunately, suffer the consequences of those motorists’ negligent or hostile driving habits.

At the Raphaelson & Levine Law Firm, we understand that pedestrian accidents are physically devastating and emotionally traumatic. Getting hit by a car feels more like an assault than an accident, especially when the injuries are life-threatening or disabling.

We are committed to supporting clients in their medical, personal, and financial recovery.

Whether you were walking to work, walking the dog, or performing any other task that New York pedestrians engage in on a daily basis, we will work hard to hold the driver accountable for hitting you.

We handle pedestrian accident injuries in every borough of New York City, including the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island, NY.

Proving Driver Liability in Pedestrians Accidents

Every case is different and, because that is true, we always try to personalize each case by highlighting the specific pre-accident lifestyle and post-accident complications that our individual clients live. Keep in mind that all insurance companies and defense attorneys will try to shift the liability burden to the victim. This is why it is critical to contact an attorney who is familiar with pedestrian accidents as soon as possible after an accident.

Our experienced trial lawyers have handled thousands of auto accident cases, including countless cases of crosswalk accidents and pedestrians hit by cars, trucks, buses, taxis, ambulances, and bicycles.

We analyze all the factors that may come into play, such as the location of the accident, stoplights or traffic signs, weather, visibility, and time of day.

We examine what the police report does and does not say. We track down witnesses. We anticipate arguments of comparative negligence such as jaywalking, crossing against the light, or alcohol consumption by the victim.

The investigation of our clients’ cases is a critical component to ultimately receiving a successful resolution to the case. In many cases, it is the hard legwork in an investigation that will help us prove the strength of our client’s position as we engage in negotiations or litigation.

“They did a lot of wonderful things for us that we never expected a law firm to do.”
