New York Pedestrian Accident Attorneys

Aggressive Representation for Victims Struck by Cars

There's nothing more annoying than impatient car, taxi, and delivery drivers who insist on inching through waves of pedestrians trying to cross the street. In New York, at intersections, crosswalks, and stop signs, motorists don't always watch for pedestrians. At the Manhattan and White Plains, New York Scarcella Law Offices we go after negligent drivers who fail to yield at stoplights, stop signs, and intersections. Not only are we prepared to reconstruct the accident but we also consult with experts who measure skid marks, review on-board computer data in vehicles, and interview eye-witnesses. Uncovering the facts, we prepare your case in light of the financial impact of your injuries and demand justice.

Be prepared with professional, experienced legal representation - contact New York pedestrian accident lawyers at Scarcella Law Offices. Whether you've been hit in Manhattan, the Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn, or Staten Island, we represent clients injured in bike accident and pedestrian accidents throughout the city, including the counties of Westchester, Rockland, and Putnam. Call today to schedule a free consultation - all we need is your time.

When Motorists Don't Bother to Look Where They're Going

It can happen in an instant - a car or taxi comes out of no where and hits a pedestrian. At the White Plains personal injury law practice of the Scarcella Law Offices, we represent pedestrians and bicyclists injured by motorists who fail to:

  • Stop at stop signs
  • Slow down on yellow
  • Stop on red before turning right
  • Yield right of way in crosswalks
  • Account for bicycle riders

Vehicles Cause Serious Injuries

Even if it's just a taxi edging around a corner at 5 mph, getting knocked to the pavement can cause serious head, neck, and back injuries. And even though you might feel a little sore at first, it sometimes takes three days or more for the full scope of a muscle or ligament injury to become apparent. By then, if you've agreed to an insurance offer, you might find your injuries require more medical attention - treatment which exceeds the amount of money you've settled for.

Don't take chances - protect your rights and get the legal information you need. Contact a New York pedestrian knockdown attorney at Scarcella Law Offices.
