SHOULD I HIRE AN NYC & WESTCHESTER COUNTY PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENT LAWYER?
After sustaining a serious injury in an accident, you may be wondering if you need an attorney to recover the compensation you deserve. It is always in your best interests to retain the services of an experienced New York City & Westchester County personal injury attorney who has handled claims of this nature for years. In fact, doing so can make all the difference in the world.
CAUSES OF PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS
As you can imagine, pedestrian accidents can happen for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, in most cases, they are the result of negligence. When a motorist fails to notice a pedestrian and strikes him or her, the motorist is almost always responsible for any injuries the pedestrian sustained.
That said, both pedestrians and motorists are responsible for obeying the rules of the road, and if a pedestrian ignores crosswalk signs or otherwise causes the accident, the driver may not be held liable for their injuries. This is why as an injured pedestrian, you must prove negligence to win a personal injury claim. Some of the most common types of driver negligence that our firm sees are as follows:
- Driving while intoxicated
- Failing to observe pedestrians at night
- Driving while distracted, causing a motorist to fail to see pedestrians
- Driving while fatigued
- Ignoring traffic lights or signs
- Speeding, especially through intersections
INJURED AS A PEDESTRIAN? HERE’S WHAT YOU SHOULD DO.
If you’ve been hurt as a pedestrian, the first thing you must do is call 911, as law enforcement will come to the scene of your accident, along with emergency medical services. Having your injuries treated is the most important thing. From here, you should immediately begin documenting the incident, if you can. This includes obtaining witness testimony/contact information, taking pictures/videos of the accident and your injuries, and asking your doctor for all medical documentation pertaining to your accident and injuries.
Finally, you should retain the services of an experienced New York City & Westchester County pedestrian accident lawyer who can fight for the compensation you need to heal. Ensure you do so within three years, in accordance with the state’s statute of limitations. Waiting longer than three years will most likely relinquish your right to sue.

Not only have I had the pleasure of working alongside Jose, but I’ve also been on the receiving end of his handling of the transference of my father’s estate. Jose and the Baez Legal Group demonstrated a kind of versatility, accountability, and dedication rarely seen outside of large international law firms. He handles a wide variety of cases with seeming ease, often surprising both his clients and I with the scope of his knowledge of different legal disciplines. Jose is not one of the myriads of lawyers that always seem too busy to allocate the proper amount of care and time to their clients; in fact, he was often in the habit of reaching out first, even if just to see how we’re doing. Should you wish to receive an unprecedented amount of excellence in the handling of your case, the Baez Legal Group should be your first and only resort.
