New York Pedestrian Car Accidents By Michael Joseph on February 16, 2011

As a New York car accident lawyer, I have handled hundreds of car accidents for pedestrians hit by trucks and cars. In New York City, especially Manhattan, Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens, there is often heavy pedestrian traffic. There is also an increasing amount of pedestrian traffic in the Westchester cities including White Plains, Yonkers, New Rochelle, Ossining and Port Chester.

The most common question that New York lawyers who handle car accident cases hear is ” I just got hit by a car, who is going to pay my medical bills” . The answer is that in New York, where a person is hit by a car crossing the street, the insurance company for the car has to pay the injuried person’s medical bills.

Often those who suffer personal injuries because they got hit by a car are scared to go to the doctor because they don’t have insurance and are not aware of the benefits available to them. The insurance company for the car is always listed on the police report and can be identified by its DMV code. Also an application for the benefits must be filed within thirty days of the accident, so it is important to consult with an experienced New York car accident lawyer as soon as possible after the accident.
