Pedestrian Accidents

The consequences of a pedestrian versus motor vehicle accident can be devastating, often resulting in serious injuries including broken bones, open wounds, scarring, traumatic brain injury (TBI), spinal injuries, amputation, or death. If you or a loved one has been injured or was the victim of a wrongful death pedestrian accident, at O’Hare Parnagian LLP we know what you are going through and we can help you. We have extensive experience representing pedestrians who have been injured in motor vehicle accidents in New York.

Making a motor vehicle claim is complex and early investigation and gathering of information is critical. You should seek legal advice from an experienced New York personal injury lawyer immediately, before you discuss your case with an insurance adjustor or agent and before you sign any documents. If you choose O’Hare Parnagian LLP to represent you, we will relentlessly pursue your claim and be dedicated advocates for your case. We believe in holding accountable those negligent, reckless, aggressive and drunk drivers who fail to pay attention to their surroundings and fail to adhere to the road rules, injuring or killing pedestrians in the process. If this has happened to you or a loved one, you can rely on O’Hare Parnagian LLP to provide premium legal representation, present your strongest case and pursue your maximum compensation entitlement.

If the cause of the accident is not clear or the insurance company is disputing liability, we will perform comprehensive investigations to uncover hidden but crucial details and identify all possible defendants. With our careful attorney investigation we can reveal important facts to help win the case, for example, that a driver was using their cell phone while driving, or was not wearing their prescription glasses. We will engage expert engineers to prove that the pedestrian was visible at night and the collision could have been avoided had the driver been paying correct attention and maintaining the speed limit. If the driver had been served an excessive amount of alcohol at a bar, the bar may also be liable for the injuries under New York’s Dram Shop Law and we will perform these investigations. If the accident was a ‘hit and run’ and the offending vehicle is unidentified, you may still be able to proceed with a claim, with the right legal representation.

Because the law limits the time in which you can bring a claim, you should contact us immediately to investigate your case. Sometimes notice must be given as early as within 30 days of the accident.
