Reasons for New York City Pedestrian Accidents
Body: New York City’s size, population, and busy roads mean that millions of drivers and pedestrians are crossing paths each day. When these interactions between walker and driver go array, it is most often the fault of the driver, but the pedestrian sustains the majority of injuries. This can lead to outrageous medical costs for a pedestrian. Luckily, a New York City pedestrian accident lawyer can help you recover damages after many pedestrian accidents.

- A pedestrian is struck while running or walking on the shoulder of the road; and
