Any car accident has the potential to cause injury, but when someone is struck by a vehicle while walking, they have nothing to protect them from the force presented by an object weighing thousands of pounds and possibly traveling at a high speed. Even New York City has recognized the epidemic of pedestrian accidents and attempted to curtail the damage through the Vision Zero campaign. Despite good intentions and certain measures that have been established, people are still getting hit by cars and trucks, often leading to serious or fatal harm. From our office in Jamaica, Queens, Aguwa & Metu, P.C. is dedicated to giving pedestrians the effective legal representation they need to collect the payment they require to cover medical costs, lost income and other expenses connected to their injuries.
Over a period of more than 20 years, our attorneys have achieved outstanding results in personal injury and wrongful death litigation. We know how to deal aggressively with the lawyers and insurance companies who want to limit the compensation they pay out to victims of car accidents. No matter how simple or complex your claim might be, we have a thorough understanding of pedestrian collision cases and the factors that lead to them, including:
From start to finish, our aggressive litigators will confront negligent parties and advocate for full, fair compensation in trial or through settlement discussions.
People on foot who require medical care after a car accident are likely to face significant medical bills, and the financial pressure can be even worse if you’re unable to work because of your injuries. All types of physical problems can result from a collision between a vehicle and a pedestrian, including traumatic brain injuries, bone fractures, internal bleeding and spinal damage. Even if your injuries are not devastating, don’t assume that the pain will go away or try to “tough it out,” or you might risk losing your legal right to compensation.
