New York City Pedestrian Accident Attorneys

The Perecman Law firm has been advocating on behalf of individuals injured in motor vehicle accidents since 1983, and we have the skills and drive to pursue the compensation our clients deserve.

Serving Injury Victims Throughout All Five Boroughs

New York City is thriving with exciting tourist sights, local spots, and iconic areas. From those on vacation to those headed to work, pedestrians crowd the streets in the city. While NYC is well known for being a pedestrian-filled city, the hustle and bustle can often lead to serious accidents due to driver inattention or distract. This type of negligence must be held accountable with swift legal action! Regardless of what kind of vehicle struck you, our NYC pedestrian accident attorneys can help you obtain the financial justice you're owed.

Due to the fact that pedestrians have no protection compared to riders or drivers in vehicles, they are the ones who often suffer severe injuries following a pedestrian accident. If you or a loved one have been injured in an accident, it is important to understand your rights and legal options during this time. The good news is that our auto accident attorneys are here to help you during this difficult period.

We are proud to provide representation to individuals injured in pedestrian accidents in:

  • Queens
  • Brooklyn
  • Manhattan
  • Bronx
  • Staten Island

Statistics on Pedestrian Accidents in New York

In a recent year, DOT of New York performed the first-ever Pedestrian Safety Report that reviewed over 7,000 crash records. The findings revealed a serious issue and lack of pedestrian safety on New York City’s streets.

Consider the following statistics for the five boroughs of NYC:

  • 16,059 pedestrians and cyclists were injured for the year.
  • Pedestrians are 10 times more likely to be killed in a collision than drivers or passengers.
  • Around 27% of all fatal pedestrian accidents involved a driver’s failure to yield.
  • Nearly 80% of fatal or catastrophic pedestrian accidents involved private vehicles, not public transportation.
  • 43% of pedestrians killed in Manhattan lived in other boroughs or outside the city.
  • Nearly 36% of all accidents that led to pedestrian fatality or serious injury were due to driver inattention.

With a large number of tourists regularly flocking to the city, the risk for serious pedestrian accidents is much higher than compared to other areas. The good news is that if you have been involved in a pedestrian accident, you don’t have to go through this time alone. Our firm has the experience, skill, and insight to help with your case.

Fight for Your Deserved Compensation

Many pedestrian accidents are caused by a driver failing to focus on the road. Whether they are texting or talking on the phone or simply distracted, this issue can lead to life-altering injuries and damages for individuals walking the streets of New York. The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C. has made it our mission to stand up for the victims of these accidents.
