On Foot And In Harm’s Way
New York is a city of bold walkers. Most walk quickly, many walk while on a cellphone and some even walk while reading a book. All of them are more likely to be injured than a driver or bike rider in the event of an accident. Our firm takes pedestrian accident cases seriously and doesn’t let up until we’ve secured appropriate compensation for those who have been injured by another’s negligence.
Navigating The Boulevard Of Death
Queens Boulevard has historically been known as “The Boulevard Of Death” because it has been the site of so many fatal accidents. Many of these fatalities have resulted from jaywalking pedestrians trying to cross the wide street in the dark. Inadequate lighting, long blocks and speeding have been factors in many deaths along Queens Boulevard. Pedestrians trying to cross this busy street at night, while drivers see nothing but a long stretch without stoplights, has led to many unfortunate and sometimes fatal accidents. Many times, the vehicle involved in such accidents speeds away.
While the city has taken measures in recent years to reduce the number of accidents along Queens Boulevard, plenty of pedestrians are still being injured and killed along its length. Our pedestrian accident attorneys in Forest Hills, Queens, provide strong representation to clients who have been hit and injured by cars on this and other streets throughout New York.
