Long Island Pedestrian Accident Attorneys
Car-oriented communities on Long Island and elsewhere in the New York metropolitan area tend not to be pedestrian friendly everywhere. Even in areas with good sidewalks, portions of walking paths may be exposed to traffic. When a pedestrian is struck by a car, truck or motorcycle, the results can be calamitous. An injured pedestrian or close family members of someone killed while walking or jogging typically need urgent, trustworthy legal counsel.
Recovery After A Pedestrian Accident
At Futterman, Lanza & Pasculli, LLP, we welcome inquiries from anyone affected by a pedestrian accident. Our personal injury attorney, Barrie Bazarsky, is ready to evaluate your case and start an investigation. She will also inform you of your rights and help identify all potential resources of compensation for the injured person or surviving next-of-kin.
Common Concerns Of Injured Pedestrians
When a walker or jogger suffers injuries in a collision with a motor vehicle, they may suffer serious or catastrophic injuries, such as a traumatic brain injury (TBI) or a spinal cord injury (SCI). Either type of injury will require hospitalization, follow-up medical care, physical therapy, and rehabilitation.
Aggressive, effective personal injury representation can free the injured person and their family to focus on healing. Attorney Barrie Bazarsky is ready to help you obtain all compensation you are eligible for to cover your losses, including:
- Medical bills
- Replacement of lost wages
- Pain and suffering
Determining a person’s long-term prognosis may take time. Attorney Barrie Bazarsky will likely recommend that you not accept a quick settlement offer from an insurance company before your doctors have issued well-documented opinions about your long-term needs. You may need expensive durable medical equipment, such as a power wheelchair and a power lift in your home. With Futterman, Lanza & Pasculli, LLP, on your side, you will have reassurance that all your losses and rehabilitative needs are considered.
