Who will compensate me for my pedestrian accident in New York?

In most cases, the insurance company for the driver who caused your pedestrian accident will compensate you or your family for your pedestrian accident. In some cases, insurance companies will contact injury victims or families of people killed in a pedestrian accident soon after the incident. They may even make an initial financial offer and insist that’s as high as they can go.

The truth is most insurance companies often make low-ball offers that don’t even begin to cover the true cost pedestrian accidents. Beyond medical expenses, pedestrian accidents often involve lost income, lost future income, pain and suffer and other legitimate expenses people often receive compensation for after a pedestrian accident.

Should I accept an offer from an insurance company for my pedestrian accident?

Before you accept a financial offer from an insurance company or anyone else for your pedestrian accident, contact Jonathan C. Reiter Law Firm, PLLC. We can carefully review the offer with you and help you decide if it’s truly reasonable.

Be aware that if you do decide to accept a financial offer from an insurance company for your pedestrian accident, you will likely forfeit your ability to take any legal action in the future. With so much at stake, it’s critical you contact us as soon as possible.

Can I file a pedestrian accident lawsuit in New York?

In most cases, yes. However, every pedestrian accident is unique. That’s why we strongly encourage you to contact us as soon as possible. We can review the circumstances of your pedestrian accident and help you decide the best course of legal action.

Often, filing a personal injury lawsuit or wrongful death lawsuit against the insurance company is the best way to obtain the money you rightfully deserve. But other times, the best way to obtain compensation might be to file a lawsuit against someone else, including:

  • Car manufacturer if the vehicle had a defect that resulted in your pedestrian accident
  • City of New York if the traffic light malfunctioned and accidentally signaled it was safe to cross while the vehicle had a green light
  • Trucking company if the truck driver who caused your pedestrian accident was texting while driving or impaired by drugs or alcohol

Many different possible scenarios exist. We’re prepared to help you deal with all of them.
