About Pedestrian Accidents
There are many hazards for pedestrians in New York.

Such cases need a skilled personal injury attorney to assist in making the claim for damages.
When you or a loved one has been the victim of a pedestrian accident, usually the main concern is recovering from the accident. However, the legal aspects of such a case are important. You will be dealing with expensive medical bills, rehabilitation and other costs in most cases. You or your loved one may have lost their ability to work and earn a living. The injuries in some cases are so catastrophic that the injured person's life will never be the same. These cases need the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer from Jacoby & Jacoby. The legal team at the firm has a history of assisting those injured in pedestrian accidents to get the compensation that they truly deserve after such accidents.
Many individuals do not realize that there are many types of claims that can be made in injury accidents. They unwittingly accept a settlement after an accident that really will not cover the future costs they may incur after the accident. Treatments that may become necessary are not affordable, as a settlement has already been received from the insurance company. If you or a loved one has been injured in a Long Island pedestrian accident, it is important that you do not discuss your case with an insurance investigator without first contacting Jacoby & Jacoby. What you say to any insurance company personnel can later be used to decrease the amount of your claim or settlement. Get legal assistance and contact Jacoby & Jacoby to evaluate your case.
