Pedestrian Accidents

Protection For The Pedestrians Of New York

The streets of Staten Island and New York City can prove hazardous – even fatal – to innocent pedestrians. Without the protection of airbags and a motor vehicle’s steel cage, a car crash can leave a pedestrian with severe injuries and thousands of dollars of medical bills.

The Law Office of Helene Mark has represented clients in Staten Island, all boroughs of New York City and New Jersey for over 30 years. Attorney Paul D. Gentile handles personal injury cases for the firm. He provides outstanding personal attention and hands-on help for injured pedestrians and bicycle riders. He has handled cases involving:

  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Spinal cord trauma and paralysis
  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Lacerations and road rash
  • Severed limbs or surgical amputation
  • Wrongful death

As a former district attorney, he is skilled in the courtroom. He will litigate your case and if necessary take the case to trial to recover the compensation you deserve.

What To Know About Pedestrian Claims

Do not delay! If a city bus or other government vehicle hit you, you only have ninety (90) days from the date of accident to start your claim. 

In New York, the careless actions of a pedestrian may deem the driver not at fault. Although your medical bills can be paid for, that does not mean a lawsuit will be successful. However, if the driver is even partly to blame, you can still be compensated. Insurance companies and defense attorneys will often use this excuse to settle your claim at low and unfair amounts. You don’t have to deal with the insurance companies alone. Call attorney Paul D. Gentile today to discuss your claim and so he can fight for you.
