Pedestrian Responsibility — New York Attorney

It is often said that "pedestrians have the right of way," and many people assume that a driver of a car, truck or motorcycle is automatically responsible in a collision with a pedestrian. In fact, pedestrians have responsibilities just as they have rights — just as operators of vehicles have rights and responsibilities.

If you were injured or if your loved one was killed in a pedestrian accident in New York, you are doing the right thing by seeking assistance and advocacy from an experienced personal injury lawyer. New York statutes have very specific laws covering many common circumstances involving right of way of pedestrians:

  • In crosswalks
  • On sidewalks
  • On roadways without sidewalks
  • At intersections or crossings with traffic control signals
  • Crossing where there is no marked crossing or signal

Prompt accident reconstruction is key in a pedestrian accident case. Interviews with eyewitnesses, surveillance video tapes and other forensic evidence may demonstrate whether a pedestrian committed any illegal acts immediately before an accident.

Stakes may be very high when a pedestrian has suffered broken bones, a back or neck injury, a knee injury, a spinal cord injury or a traumatic brain injury. It is important to consult with a knowledgeable attorney about New York pedestrian responsibility. Lawyers at Subin Associates, LLP, are prepared to explain your rights and how to go about pursuing maximum available compensation after a pedestrian accident.
