New York Pedestrian Accidents
We would first like to extend our sincere sympathies to Carmine Mandarano as we warmly wish for his full recovery from all injuries. Sadly, pedestrian accidents in New York often prove to be catastrophically injurious or fatal because of the sheer lack of protection between a person and a vehicle at the time of a collision.
While it may be horrendously difficult, it is essential for victims to know that they may likely have rights after an injury, particularly when their wounds have been caused by the actions of a negligent party. At Hach & Rose, we know that the moments following an unforeseen injury can be extremely stressful, and we adamantly believe that your mind must remain on your physical recovery, first and foremost.
We also understand that as the innocent victim of someone else’s inattentive behavior, you deserve the most compensation possible. If you have been hurt in a New York pedestrian accident, please don’t hesitate to call 212-779-0057 today.
