Our Babylon Pedestrian Accident Lawyers Fight for Justice

If a negligent driver caused your Babylon, NY, pedestrian accident and injuries, you have rights. This includes holding the at-fault driver accountable and recovering compensation to pay for your damages. When our Long Island collision lawyers handle these cases, they must:

  • Identify and document your expenses and losses
  • Calculate a fair settlement range for the case
  • Determine the options for seeking compensation based on case facts

Each pedestrian hit by a car suffers unique injuries and, therefore, has their own set of expenses and losses. However, we have the knowledge and experience to identify these costs and understand how much your case might be worth.

Some common damages in Long Island pedestrian accident cases include:

  • Hospital and medical bills, including ambulance or med-evac transportation
  • Future care and support needs
  • Lost income
  • Diminished earning ability
  • Related expenses
  • Pain and suffering damages

Under EPT § 5-4.1, only the decedent’s personal representative—the executor of the estate—can serve as plaintiff in a New York state wrongful death action. You generally have up to two years to sue.

The recoverable damages could include:

  • Medical bills from your loved one’s treatment, including emergency transportation
  • Any conscious pain and suffering endured by the victim before they passed

Our Babylon Lawyers Know How Challenging It Is to Overcome a Pedestrian Accident

When a car or truck strikes a pedestrian, the victim often suffers catastrophic injuries. Pedestrians have no protection from the forces of an accident, which sometimes occur at increased speeds.

Our Pedestrian Accident Lawyers Will Build a Compelling Case Based on Your Babylon, NY Crash

Our Babylon lawyers know how to build a compelling case showing the at-fault driver acted negligently and caused your injuries. We know what causes these accidents and how to investigate them. Trust us to handle your case from start to finish.

Negligence is at the heart of every civil case based on a pedestrian collision. There are four elements required to document negligence:

  • Duty of care
  • Breach of duty
  • Causation
  • Harm

To hold a driver accountable for your injuries, we must show negligence occurred. Some common reasons why a driver acts negligently and causes a crash include:

  • Distracted Driving: Distracted drivers do not have their full attention on safe driving. Distractions can be physical, visual, or mental.
  • Drunk or Drugged Driving: When someone is under the influence of alcohol or drugs, they are much more likely to make careless mistakes behind the wheel.
  • Speeding: Exceeding the speed limit or driving too fast for the current conditions can make it difficult to recognize a pedestrian and slow down in time.
  • Failure to Account for Conditions: Drivers must account for traffic, weather, and road conditions to prevent accidents.

We must also show how negligence led to the direct cause of the crash. Some common causes of pedestrian accidents include:

  • Failure to yield the right-of-way to pedestrians
  • Not leaving enough space when passing a pedestrian
  • Failure to stop for pedestrians in a crosswalk

Whether turning right or left, drivers must check the intersection for pedestrians. Failing to do so is one of the most common ways careless drivers cause pedestrian accident injuries.

The evidence available to prove your case will depend greatly on the circumstances. Our pedestrian accident lawyers know what to look for and how to develop a persuasive case for compensation. Some common types of evidence we use to document negligence, fault, and damages include:

  • Relevant medical records
  • The police accident report
  • Witness statements
  • Photos and videos of the accident scene
  • Testimony from experts
  • Physical evidence
  • Documentation of damages, such as medical bills

Once we have the evidence, we can determine the next steps for seeking compensation and holding the at-fault driver accountable. There are several ways we recover the money our clients need in these cases. They include:

  • Negotiating a fair settlement with the driver’s insurance carrier
  • Filing a personal injury lawsuit and settling the case outside of court
  • Closing the case through mediation or arbitration
