Long Island Pedestrian Accident Attorney
In 2015, Long Island saw approximately 15,000 pedestrian accidents. Many of Long Island’s roads are not safe. Our traffic control devices can only do so much. Not all drivers are safe drivers, either. To compound matters, pedestrians are unprotected on the road. Consequently, when a pedestrian accident occurs, the results can be catastrophic. At Palermo Law, you’ll find a Long Island Pedestrian Accident Attorney dedicated to maximizing your recovery.
Most pedestrian accidents are the driver’s fault. Today, with cell phones, texting, GPS and other distractions that take drivers’ attention off the road, it is no surprise that driver inattention or distraction is the principal contributing factor in pedestrian crashes. Failure to yield the right-of-way is the second most common cause. These two causes top the list, accounting for close to half of all pedestrian accidents. The other causes include, but are not limited to: motor vehicles unsafely backing up, drivers having a limited or obstructed view of the road, drivers disregarding the rules of the road, and unsafe speeding and/or driving while intoxicated, in that order.
