Pedestrians deserve protection, too. Sharing the road is important. Not everyone commutes by car. If you walk or cycle to work, school, or your other daily activities, it is important to know the rules of the road—and that there are laws in place protecting you. Our firm represents the victims of pedestrian accidents in New York’s Nassau County. If you or a loved one was hurt while walking or biking, speak with an attorney at Foley Griffin, LLP about your potential personal injury claim.
These injuries are serious and can be life altering. In many of these cases, the cause of the accident was a driver’s negligence or misconduct. Drunk driving and driving while distracted—such as texting or talking on the phone behind the wheel—are leading causes of pedestrian accidents. Other causes include illegally parking a vehicle so that it blocks driver / pedestrian vision, ignoring traffic signs and signals, or turning without checking crosswalks.
The sooner you take action after a pedestrian accident, the better. Our team can work quickly to get to the bottom of your case.
