New York City Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrians in New York City face many risks of injury every day when we are walking the streets.

Moving cars and motor vehicles not paying attention to the presence of pedestrians either at intersections or moving to or from parked positions. Bicycle delivery personnel riding the wrong way on City streets often come into contact with pedestrians causing serious injury. Our sidewalks are not always well maintained causing significant risk of trip and fall related accidents which can cause significant injury including fractured bones. During the winter months serious injuries arise from snow and ice related pedestrian accidents due to the failure to maintain the sidewalk.
