Bronx Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

One of the perks of living in the Bronx is that you can get around pretty easily without a car.

In a high-traffic area like the Bronx, pedestrian accidents can be common.

If you are ever injured in a Bronx pedestrian accident, you may qualify to file a personal injury lawsuit. To learn more about your options, schedule a free legal consultation with a Bronx pedestrian accident lawyer at Shulman & Hill. Our lawyers in the Bronx can review the details of your accident to help you determine how best to proceed.

Common Causes of Bronx Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrian accidents typically involve being struck by a car, truck, or similar vehicle. The causes of these accidents include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Drunk driving
  • Distracted driving 
  • Vehicle defects
  • Hazardous road conditions
  • Sleep deprivation
  • Failure to see a pedestrian
  • Aggressive driving

The rate of pedestrian accidents in New York City is on the rise. You should always be aware of your surroundings to help reduce the risk of injury when walking around the Bronx.

Potential Consequences of a Bronx Pedestrian Accident

As one might expect, being injured in a Bronx pedestrian accident can be very costly. Although the severity of your injuries can vary depending on a number of factors, you will likely require some degree of medical treatment. Due to the unexpected nature of these accidents, you may not be prepared to pay your medical bills.

Paying your bills can become an even greater challenge if your injuries interfere with your ability to work. During your recovery, you may find yourself unable to earn a paycheck.

If you ever find yourself injured in a pedestrian accident that you believe occurred by way of someone else’s negligence, meeting with the expert lawyers at our personal injury law firm in the Bronx could be beneficial. At Shulman & Hill, we can help you pursue the compensation to which you may be entitled.

How Our Pedestrian Accident Law Firm in the Bronx Can Help

When seeking compensation, there are many reasons you should strongly consider enlisting the help of Bronx pedestrian accident lawyers. The following are among the key ways we can help:

Identifying Potentially Liable Parties

Seeking compensation for losses resulting from a Bronx pedestrian accident may involve filing a lawsuit against the negligent party. If the insurance company will not agree to a fair settlement, our Bronx pedestrian accident attorneys can represent you in trial.

Either way, the first step to pursuing any potential compensation is to identify the negligent party(s) who caused your accident in the first place. This often requires conducting an investigation.

If you were injured when a car struck you, it is often the case that the driver and/or owner of the vehicle is responsible for compensating you. However, this is not always the case which is why an investigation is necessary.

Determining Potential Compensation

All cases are different. As a result, many different losses can contribute to the value of your Bronx pedestrian accident claim or lawsuit. If you do not have the proper training, you may understandably struggle to determine how much compensation you may be entitled to.

When you work with our Bronx pedestrian accident attorneys, that is not something you need to worry about. We can thoroughly review all the significant details pertaining to your accident and help you seek compensation that fairly covers the full extent of your injuries.

Handling Administrative Tasks & Similar Duties

When you are recovering from injuries sustained in a Bronx pedestrian accident, you probably do not want to burden yourself with the various daunting tasks the claims process involves. Between collecting evidence, filing a demand letter, and corresponding with insurance adjusters, the process can be very draining if you are trying to recover. While you rest and get better, we can handle all the major and minor steps in the legal process.


When you file a claim against a negligent party’s insurance, you may quickly learn how some insurers tend to operate in these circumstances. Sadly, some of these companies are not inclined to pay claimants the full amount to which they may be entitled.

Some insurance companies may even prefer that injured victims not hire attorneys. This, of course, allows them to protect what many businesses care about most: their bottom line. Insurance companies know that claimants tend to have limited experience in legal matters. As a result, insurance companies and their legal teams often capitalize on the fact that these claimants might not be able to identify an unreasonably low settlement offer.

The negotiation process is among the top reasons to work with a pedestrian accident law firm in the Bronx. When seeking compensation, we know how to negotiate effectively on your behalf.
