Representing Victims of Auto Pedestrian Accidents and More!
Pedestrian accidents can be particularly brutal because they often involve catastrophic injuries or even death. According to the New York Department of Health, between the years 2012 and 2014, there were over 300 deaths per year from pedestrian vs. car accidents. Additionally, over 3,000 hospitalizations occurred each year due to pedestrian and vehicle accidents.
