Pedestrian injury claim settled by city for $4.5 million

The driver of a motor vehicle in New York City cannot strike a pedestrian who is properly in a crosswalk without having serious legal consequences.

Many people in Manhattan choose to walk to get from place to place.

Pedestrian accident numbers continue to mount high fatalities

Walking is great exercise and good for the heart. Ironically, those who do go out and walk are facing another danger by becoming victims of pedestrian accidents.

Pedestrian injury victim may claim damages from reckless driver

Some antics of drivers in New York City may strike some observers as comedic displays by eccentric personalities. But the antics of a reckless driver in Manhattan are nothing to be proud about.

He may expect to be confronted by personal injury claims from those who suffered pedestrian injury from his seemingly wanton and destructive actions.

Fatal Pedestrian accident adds to mounting toll involving buses
