Locating a Pedestrian Accident Lawyer in Queens

/ Car Accident, Pedestrian Accident, Personal Injury /

NEW YORK – Roadways in Queens are designed to be used by everyone — motorists, cyclists, pedestrians, and anyone else who needs to get around. Everyone shares the responsibility to follow road rules, yet the people operating the heaviest machinery like cars and trucks must pay closer attention to everyone else sharing the road.

Although there are laws dictating the rules of the road for each type of user, accidents are a common occurrence. Distractions like cell phones, food, and even passengers lure drivers’ eyes away from the road. Unfortunately, pedestrians involved in car accidents suffer the most, even in low-speed collisions.

How to Find a Quality Pedestrian Accident Lawyer in Queens

Pedestrian accident cases are fairly common in and around New York City. In Queens, a large percentage of residents travel on foot; therefore, the odds of becoming injured and requiring the services of a quality accident lawyer are high. If you’ve been injured in a pedestrian accident, these tips might help you find the best lawyer for your case.

  1. Find a lawyer who has handled cases similar to yours. In most instances, personal injury lawyers who dedicate a large portion of their practice to car accidents are qualified to handle pedestrian accidents. When researching personal injury lawyers in Queens, be sure to ask if they have successfully recovered compensation on behalf of pedestrians, and review some of their case results.
  2. Seek recommendations from friends and family. It is not only possible but likely that someone in your social circle has been involved in a motor vehicle accident at some point in her life. Don’t hesitate to ask for referrals and find out what your friend liked best about her attorney.
  3. Scour lawyer directories. Lawyer directories can sometimes provide comprehensive profiles that show each attorney’s biography, focus, helpful information, and even testimonials from previous clients that can help you get a feel for his or her practice. At the very least, these directories should provide contact information and a link to the attorney’s website so you can learn more.
  4. Search online for pedestrian accident lawyers in Queens. A good place to get started is a Google search. While you will likely see dozens of results, review each website’s information and make a shortlist of a handful of attorneys you’d like to meet in person for a free consultation.

Client Thanks

I would like to thank your firm for representing our family on behalf of my late husband. This whole process was, at times, difficult for us and sometimes painful. But, we were always in good hands as Brian and Maria are two of the hardest working and sincerest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. They did a tremendous job.
