Unwavering Representation Focused on Results

Crosswalks are meant to protect pedestrians by helping them to cross the street safely. Unfortunately, negligent and reckless drivers sometimes disregard these road markings — and when they do, serious accidents can occur. If you were struck by a car, SUV, truck, motorcycle, or another vehicle while attempting to cross the street in a crosswalk, you may have suffered serious or even catastrophic injuries. In such cases, it’s crucial to hold the at-fault driver accountable for their actions by hiring a personal injury law firm with extensive knowledge of New York’s motor vehicle laws.

At The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown, LLP, we know how emotionally stressful and financially difficult the aftermath of a crosswalk accident can be for you and your family. Our legal team is prepared to fight on your behalf to recover the maximum amount of compensation available under the law for the economic losses you incurred and your pain and suffering. Due to our commitment, skillful representation, and unwavering advocacy, we regularly secure settlements and verdicts in the millions for clients who have been seriously injured in crosswalk accidents.

Pursuing the Monetary Recovery You Need to Move Forward

There are a variety of reasons crosswalk accidents may occur. But in most cases, they happen because of driver negligence. For instance, a driver may be texting or talking on their cell phone — or, they might simply be inpatient. Regardless of the cause of the accident, a pedestrian who is struck in a crosswalk by a vehicle may suffer a wide range of injuries, including soft tissue injuries, broken bones, nerve damage, traumatic brain injury, paralysis, or fatality.

Our personal injury attorneys offer fierce advocacy and qualified counsel to crosswalk accident victims in New York who have been injured due to:

  • Speeding or reckless driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Improper turns
  • Driving under the influence
  • Inattentive driving
  • A driver’s failure to yield
  • A driver’s failure to obey traffic signals

Often, a driver will attempt to argue the pedestrian was to blame for the accident — they might maintain that the victim wasn’t paying attention, failed to observe their surroundings, or stepped outside the crosswalk. The personal injury attorneys at The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown, LLP know how to combat claims of comparative negligence and work to ensure you receive the maximum compensation available in your case. We are adept at upholding the rights of crosswalk accident victims and provide relentless representation to help ensure you obtain the justice that is rightfully yours.

Knowledgeable Counsel and Adept Advocacy

Being struck by a vehicle in a crosswalk is typically one of the most traumatic types of accidents a person can experience. Since pedestrians do not have the protection of the steel frame of a vehicle, like drivers and their passengers, a crosswalk accident can be life-changing and permanently debilitating. The personal injury attorneys at The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown, LLP know what it takes to ensure a negligent party is held liable for their negligence. Our legal team will thoroughly investigate your crosswalk accident claim and work tirelessly to recover your economic and non-economic damages.

Although no-fault benefits will cover a certain amount of medical expenses and lost earnings, it usually isn’t adequate to cover the extent of an injured pedestrian’s losses. It also doesn’t compensate for the physical pain and mental anguish that often results from crosswalk accidents. Whether your case can be negotiated outside of court or must be argued in front of a jury, our team of attorneys won’t back down when it comes to achieving the outcome you need. Handling every case with the utmost diligence and precision, The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown, LLP are committed to recovering the full amount of monetary recovery you deserve for your crosswalk accident injuries.
