Pedestrian Accidents

An Injury When You Least Expect It

New York City is a city of walkers. On any given day, the sidewalks are jammed with people commuting on foot — particularly in busy areas of the city. Some might be listening to music while they walk; some are texting; some even walk while reading a book. What none of them expect is to be hit by a car or a truck. But it happens. And when pedestrian accidents happen, those who are injured may face hefty medical bills and lost wages while they can't work. At Elefterakis Elefterakis & Panek, we represent those who have been injured while getting around on foot. You don't have to go through this alone: call 646-561-9161 or 877-820-6510 toll free to speak to a lawyer about what happened and how we can help.

Poorly Lit Streets, Speeding Cars

New York pedestrians can be an aggressive bunch; many don't wait for stoplights to change before they enter crosswalks, and jaywalking is not an unknown occurrence. But that doesn't mean pedestrians are always to blame in a collision with a car. Some areas of Brooklyn have poorly lit stretches of roadway where the combination of speeding cars and pedestrians crossing the street wearing dark-colored clothes ends in hit-and-run accidents, severe injury or even death. Injured individuals and their families deserve full compensation to help pay for the aftermath. We are here to help our neighbors recover.
