Whether you’re a pedestrian in Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, Manhattan, or Staten Island, there are pedestrians everywhere. They’re in crosswalks. They're on sidewalks. Pedestrian accidents can happen when you least expect it. David Scher: And there are any number of different ways that cars can come in contact with pedestrians. Sometimes drives aren’t paying attention. Maybe they're trying to beat a light. Maybe they’re texting on their phone, or maybe they don’t understand that you did have the right-of-way. Stephen Murphy: When a person is a victim in a pedestrian accident, they’ve gotta think about protecting themselves. The first and most important thing they have to do is get an experienced medical professional to make sure they’re okay. The next order of protection is making sure that there’s a police report generated where their version of the accident is properly recorded.
