Manhattan Pedestrian Accidents
The most devastating traffic accidents that occur are often those involving pedestrians. A pedestrian who is struck by a moving vehicle is at great risk of sustaining serious injuries or death. Even if the vehicle is slow moving, a pedestrian or bicyclist can still sustain fractures and other severe and sometimes life threatening injuries. The New York City Police Department reported that in 2013, more than 12,000 pedestrians were injured and more than 160 killed by automobiles in NYC. In addition, more than 4,000 bicyclists were injured or killed, despite NYC’s attempts to make the streets safer for pedestrians and bicyclists.
