New York Pedestrian Accident
Pedestrian accidents tend to be serious in nature, made even more serious when a child is involved in an accident. If your child has been injured, you might wonder how you can pay for their medical bills and cover a vast variety of other damages during this difficult time. We wish to extend our condolences to you and hope that the child recovers quickly from this devastating accident.
The parents of a child will bring a personal injury case under New York personal injury law so that they can receive compensation for many aspects and move forward at this time. It is not uncommon for pedestrian accidents to bring some of the most serious injuries, as pedestrians are extremely vulnerable on our roadways.
At Hach & Rose, we want to stand by your side as you make your claim for compensation and work toward the results you deserve. Call us for more information today at 212-779-0057.
