Manhattan Pedestrian Accidents

Manhattan Pedestrian Accident Attorneys

Manhattan is one place in the United States where driving a car can be more problematic than traveling by other ways. Traffic congestion is easily observed throughout Manhattan. By walking and using the subway or taxis, you very well may arrive at your destination sooner than someone who tries to drive.

To address the many problems associated with traffic congestion and pedestrian traffic in conflict, New York City has established pedestrian-only zones in Times Square and Herald Square, along Broadway. Nonetheless, opportunities for car-pedestrian and car-bicycle accidents to occur abound in and around Manhattan.

Injury Lawyer Evaluating Your Case

Streets crowded with cars and trucks are also often crowded with people: tourists, businessmen and women, street vendors and residents of the area. When a pedestrian is injured, a common question is, "Was the pedestrian in the crosswalk, and did he or she cross with a 'walk' light?"

From Smiley & Smiley's law offices in Manhattan, pedestrian accident lawyers advise and represent injured pedestrians. Whether or not you were in the crosswalk when you were struck by a car, and whether or not you walked on a "walk" light, if you were seriously injured, you may have a case worth pursuing against a driver, a property owner or the city of New York in some cases. Contact an attorney at our law firm, the sooner the better.
