Pedestrian accidents can result from a number of circumstances, especially in crowded metropolitan areas. When accidents lead to the need for medical care or the loss of wages, life or companionship, victims may be able to seek compensation from the driver at fault for the accident. Even when police don't site a driver specifically, if plaintiffs can prove negligence, they could be awarded monetary damages.
For one mother, her newborn baby and a friend, damages following a New York pedestrian accident are very serious. The incident occurred on Wednesday, March 5, around 6 p.m. A pregnant 42-year-old woman was crossing a street in the Bronx with a friend when a driver in a Chevy Suburban bumped into them.
