Many people in the city do not own cars, so they rely on mass transit and walking to get where they need to go. The result is not surprising: the streets and sidewalks in some cities are dense with pedestrians. It is also not surprising that this density contributes to the high number of pedestrian accidents and serious injuries.
At the New York City law firm of Proner & Proner, lead attorney Mitchell Proner understands the complexities of filing a claim or lawsuit after a pedestrian accident. Who was responsible? Was that party negligent? Are there other parties who may be partly responsible?
