Brooklyn Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

Representing Clients in Brooklyn, Manhattan, and all New York City

When you are walking down a sidewalk or at a crosswalk, you expect vehicles to obey pedestrian right-of-way laws and to watch out for pedestrians. In some cases, drivers behave recklessly and end up hitting a pedestrian. These collisions are some of the most devastating because they can cause catastrophic injuries - and could have been prevented if the driver had not acted in negligence.

New York City’s Right of Way Law

This law is designed to help protect pedestrians on hazardous city streets, making it a misdemeanor criminal offense when a driver fails to yield and kills or injures an individual walking in the crosswalk with the right of way.

Under this law, pedestrians are given right-of-way protection for the duration of the countdown clock or the flashing red hand. However, when the law was first enacted, pedestrians crossing a street at a crosswalk with a “Walk, Don’t Walk” sign only have the right of way if they’ve started crossing when the sign shows a white walk signal.

Researchers of pedestrian accidents determined that real consequences of careless driving are the best way to encourage safe decisions behind the wheel. Before there even was a Right of Way Law, most of these drivers would only face a small fine and three points on their driving record, or even no consequences whatsoever. Nowadays, the city is doing their best to ensure that pedestrians are protected by the law.
