Hundreds of pedestrians in the New York area are killed or seriously injured each year due to the negligent or reckless driving of others. At the New York and White Plains Offices of Gallivan & Gallivan, we aggressively represent individuals injured by negligent or reckless drivers. Our attorneys work diligently to reconstruct the accident and hire experts to measure skid marks, interview witnesses and take pictures of the scene. Once armed with all the facts, we pursue maximum compensation for our clients.
Many pedestrians suffer greatly as a result of these types of accidents (commonly referred to as "pedestrian knock-downs"). We have represented clients with the most severe injuries including brain damage, amputations, death, burns, fractures, dislocations, whiplash, neck injuries, back injuries, leg injuries, hip injuries, and spinal cord damage.
