What to do if Injured on the Street as a Pedestrian – New York Attorney Dallin Fuchs Explains
New York personal injury attorney Dallin Fuchs discusses if you have a valid basis for a case if you’ve been injured by a motor vehicle but were not following some safety rules yourself.
Sometimes while we’re walking the street or jogging around, we may not be using the crosswalk or we may be traveling against the traffic light. While this is not safe for us as pedestrians, it doesn’t automatically mean the other person is not at fault.
Drivers have a responsibility to see what is there to be seen. That means if a person or object is in the way, even at their own fault or through no fault of the driver, the person driving the car still has to be able to recognize their own danger and react. Each motor vehicle driver has to act in their own best interest but also be aware of what’s going on in the road whether a person is walking, jogging or biking in their general area. Seek the advice of an experienced attorney who will help you understand whether or not you have a valid case and can recover compensation for your injuries. Watch this video to learn more.
