Fighting for Your Right to Obtain Justice

Millions of people walk through New York City every day. While most travel to and from their destinations without incident, pedestrian accidents are not uncommon. Unlike drivers and passengers in cars, SUVs, buses, and trucks, there is nothing to protect pedestrians in the event they are struck by a motor vehicle — the consequences of these types of accidents can be severe, or even fatal.

If you or a loved one was hit by a vehicle while on foot, it’s important to hold the negligent party accountable for the resulting injuries. The personal injury lawyers at The Edelsteins, Faegenberg & Brown, LLP have over 80 years fighting for justice for pedestrians who have been hurt due to the carelessness or recklessness of another — and an impressive track record of obtaining verdicts and settlements well into the millions on their behalf.

From having to undergo extensive medical treatment to losing time from work, the aftermath of a pedestrian accident can feel daunting — but you don’t have to face it alone. The legal team at The Edelsteins, Faegenberg & Brown, LLP is committed to providing compassionate counsel and personalized legal services as we walk beside our clients every step of the way.

Our personal injury lawyers handle a wide variety of pedestrian accident cases, including those resulting from:

  • A driver’s inattention or inexperience

  • Driving while intoxicated by drugs or alcohol
  • Hit and run accidents
