New York pedestrian accident Q and A

It seems like every day there are news reports of pedestrians being struck by automobiles. Anyone in New York or elsewhere who has been hit and injured by a vehicle while out walking is bound to have various questions and wonder what they should do after the fact. This column will address some common questions that some may have if they want to pursue compensation for their losses following a pedestrian accident.

Compensation may be sought following a fatal car accident

Regardless of how it happens, losing a loved one is never easy. When the loss of life comes in an unexpected way -- such as in a fatal car accident -- the results can be particularly devastating. When a life is taken due to the negligent actions of another person, according to the laws of New York, the victim's surviving family members may be entitled to seek compensation for their losses. If you have found yourself facing such an unfortunate situation, an experienced wrongful death attorney may be able to help.

PTSD may result from a serious car accident

A lot of people may only think of the physical injuries that are suffered in serious auto collisions. The truth is, though, traumatic stress may also be experienced. If a New York resident suffers post-traumatic stress disorder as a result of a car accident caused by another person, he or she may be entitled to seek damages.
