Pedestrian Accidents in New York 

Pedestrians are some of the most at-risk parties on our roads who receive some of the most severe injuries in pedestrian accidents in New York. In one recent year’s time, it was estimated that approximately 312 people were killed as a result of pedestrian accidents, which means that approximately 1.6 out of every 100,000 New Yorkers were recently killed as a result of these accidents. Pedestrians are especially vulnerable when involved in train accidents due to the fact that trains are so much larger than pedestrians and capable of causing severe harm.

Nobody is ever prepared to face the aftermath of a pedestrian accident entirely on their own. There are many severe injuries that result from these accidents including spinal cord injuries, TBIs, organ damage, and more. Pedestrians will typically spend an extensive amount of time recovering in the hospital and might also miss out on time at work as a result of these accidents.
