New York Times Confirms an Alarming Number of Pedestrian Accidents as Referred to in My Recent Blog Posts

NYC Taxi Cab AccidentsIn three of my recent blog posts, I discussed a shocking number of recent news reports of pedestrian accidents.

In today’s New York Times, an article entitled “A Renewed Call for Stronger Pedestrian Safety Measures” essentially confirmed my perception that there is a pedestrian accident crisis in New York City. The article cited the Tri-State Transportation Campaign  which found that 420 pedestrians have  been killed on NYC streets between 2010 and 2012. The article also stated that “On average, a New Yorker is seriously injured or killed every two hours in a traffic accident”

You, the pedestrian, must be constantly vigilant when crossing the streets of our great city. There are many negligent drivers whose inattention can cause you serious harm. For safety tips it is worth re-reading my earlier blog post on “How to Avoid Pedestrian Accidents in NYC”

If you have been the victim of a pedestrian accident, you may be entitled to money damages for your pain and suffering, lost wages and medical bills.
