If you have ever driven on the streets of New York, then you are probably aware of just how hectic and dangerous the streets of the Big Apple are. As if the excessive amount of vehicles traveling bumper to bumper throughout the streets were not enough, there are also bicyclists riding alongside or sometimes in between gaps in traffic and also pedestrians attempting to cross the street while all the drivers and riders are in a rush.
It should come as no real surprise that tens of thousands of people suffer injuries due to motor vehicle accidents annually in New York. It is true that no matter how careful you are, you could easily find yourself in a car accident if you happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. There is no city in which this is truer than New York, which is why New York residents should be aware of the possibility of taking legal action in the case of a motor vehicle accident.
If you have been injured in an accident, whether you were a biker struck by a car, a pedestrian hit by a biker or any combination thereof, you could be entitled to compensation if you were not at fault in the accident. Of course, if you hope to recover compensation, you will have to prove that the other party or parties’ negligence contributed to the accident.
There are many different ways in which a person could prove fault, including using eyewitness testimony, video evidence, accident reconstruction and more.
