Pedestrian Accidents

One of the most common types of accidents that result in injuries occur to pedestrians (people walking on sidewalks, parking lots, pathways, staircases, crossing streets or almost anywhere). These pedestrian accidents often happen in malls, stores, hotels, restaurants, schools, apartment buildings or in other people’s homes. Also commonplace is when you are injured going up or down a curb, escalator, stoop, deck or a patio. All of these occurrences are known as pedestrian accidents and may result in a financial recovery.

If you fall down during one of these activities and are injured, you may be entitled to compensation or damages, as long as the accident is someone else’s fault. Among the types of compensation you may make a claim for are medical bills, pain and suffering, lost income, loss of enjoyment of life and other types of damages. If you have had a pedestrian accident and were injured, you should contact us and set up a free consultation with one of our lawyers as soon as you can.

Even if the accident is partially your own fault, but not entirely, you still may be entitled to compensation for any losses. We at Glynn Mercep and Purcell, LLP have successfully settled or won recoveries for hundreds of people injured in pedestrian accidents from insurance companies for either schools, shopping centers, stores, supermarkets, homeowners, municipalities and many other entities.

In cases against municipalities such as the State of New York, Suffolk County, your town or village, a school district or Stony Brook University, there is a strict 90 day time limit for the injured person to file a claim, so it is imperative that a consultation be scheduled quickly or you may lose your right to obtain compensation or damages. If we agree that you are entitled to make a claim after we have met with you and investigated your accident, we will vigorously represent you and obtain a fair and just result. We are not afraid to go up against big corporations, school districts or state or county owned colleges to obtain justice for you.

So please contact Glynn Mercep and Purcell, LLP and speak to one of our lawyers or paralegals as soon after your pedestrian accident as possible. If we take your case, we do not get a legal fee unless we are successful in resolving your case by obtaining a settlement or verdict in your favor.
