Brooklyn is one of the boroughs of New York City with the most walkable areas, particularly in regions like Cobble Hill, Brooklyn Heights, and Boerum Hill. Most amenities, including the bus and subway, are accessible within a five-minute walk for residents. Many Brooklynites enjoy taking strolls, going for walks, or running to get some daily exercise, even when they don’t use their feet as their primary means of transportation for commuting.

However, there is still a significant risk of being run over by a car and suffering severe or catastrophic injuries, even in walking-friendly areas like Brooklyn.

Every year, numerous accidents involving walkers, joggers, and cyclists in the Bronx result in catastrophic damage and life-changing injuries. Most often, it occurs due to drunk drivers being careless, using their phones while driving, and other factors.

Examining Fault In Pedestrian-Car Accidents

You and your Brooklyn Pedestrian Accident lawyers will carefully review the entire case to identify who is at fault. To thoroughly evaluate the fault, eyewitness accounts, traffic videos, police reports, and other available evidence will be reviewed by Siler & Inger. Here are some examples of negligent driving behavior that frequently results in accidents involving pedestrians:

  • Running through a red light.
  • Not correctly following crosswalk pedestrians rules.
  • Using a smartphone while driving (texting or making a call).
  • Moving too quickly on public highways, streets, or parking lots.
  • Drunken driving
  • Illegal parking that obstructs pedestrian visibility

The worst-case scenario for pedestrians in Brooklyn is a careless driver, who increases the danger to all the other drivers on the road. Being struck by a negligent driver while crossing the street, on the sidewalk, or anywhere else can result in severe injuries and hardships in your life that may seem impossible. By holding the driver accountable, Brooklyn President Accident Lawyer will assist you in getting back on your feet.

New York Laws That Protect Pedestrians

There are many laws in New York that are in favor of pedestrians: New York State Vehicle and Traffic Law – This is the state’s official vehicle and traffic law. If a pedestrian is injured by a motorist who violates this law, the motorist will often be found negligent in a civil suit.

Elle’s Law: Under this law, any motorist who violates this law and injures an individual severely receives an automatic suspension of their license for six months. If they have any other incident that violates Elle’s Law within five years, their license will be suspended for an entire year.

Hayley & Diego’s Law: This law created a “careless driving” violation that concerns specific penalties when a motorist fails to operate a motor vehicle carefully, and as a result, a pedestrian or bicyclist is injured. It acts as a legal stop gap to be used when a pedestrian accident injury has occurred due to driver negligence, but a criminal charge is not likely. The first offense garners either:

A $750 fine, or
15 days in jail, or
Completion of a driving training course.
