If you’re here, chances are you were struck by a motor vehicle as a pedestrian in New York, and you have the same questions that many of my clients have. “What is my case worth? What is the value?” There’s no easy answer to that question. It depends on the extent of your injury. It depends on whether or not your injuries are permanent in nature; that adds value to the case. It also depends on how the accident happened. Was it all the fault of the driver, or is there some culpable conduct on your part? Were you crossing in the middle of the street? Were you crossing within a pedestrian crosswalk with a green light? These are all factors that need to be considered. It doesn’t mean you don’t have a case if you’re walking across the middle of the street, but these are factors that come into play in making a determination as to what your case is worth. I will tell you that our firm will make sure that you get the compensation that you’re entitled to.
