Pedestrian Accident Lawyer in Queens, N.Y. | Zlotolow & Associates

At Zlotolow & Associates, our knowledgeable Queens pedestrian accident attorneys will manage your case from start to finish, including taking care of all paperwork and communication with insurers. When you decide to entrust your personal injury claim to our skilled team, we will:

  • Gather all the evidence related to your pedestrian accident. We will want to launch an investigation as soon as possible so we may gather evidence before it is destroyed or otherwise lost. This includes evidence from the crash scene, surveillance camera footage, photos of damage to the vehicle, law enforcement accident reports, witness statements, and driver cellphone records.
  • Identify all potentially liable (legally responsible) parties in your accident and the insurance coverage they hold that is applicable to your losses.
  • Review your medical records, including current costs and your prognosis for recovery or future medical needs. We will have medical professionals review your records to provide independent opinions of your prognosis. In cases of disability, we can obtain life care plans, which will include detailed projections of future and ongoing needs and their costs.
  • Calculate your losses related to missed wages and reduced earning capacity in the future.
  • Work with you to document your pain and suffering. We will ask you to keep a journal of how you are feeling and the ways in which your life has changed.
  • Aggressively negotiate with insurers for full payment to you. If a fair settlement cannot be reached, we will be prepared to proceed to court and present a solid case there.

As we negotiate with insurers, we will bring all settlement offers to you. We will never advise you to accept a settlement that is for less than what your claim is truly worth, but the decision will always be yours. Accepting a settlement offer ends the case and results in almost immediate payment. You should know that even after a lawsuit has been filed, a settlement offer may be made and accepted any time before the jury returns a verdict.

Compensation in a Pedestrian Accident Claim

While a driver’s auto liability insurance should pay for injuries and other losses in a pedestrian accident, insurers will try to avoid paying costly claims if there is any cause to dispute them. The insurance claims adjustor who contacts you after an accident knows what he or she is authorized to pay without hearing the details of your case. First and foremost, the insurance company will work to protect its own bottom line.

That’s why you need our experienced Queens pedestrian accident lawyers on your side. Our dedicated legal team will demand payment for:

  • Medical expenses, both now and in the future
  • Lost income, including unrealized future earnings
  • Personal property damage
  • Physical and emotional pain and suffering
  • Funeral and burial expenses in cases of fatal pedestrian accidents
  • Punitive damages when evidence shows the at-fault party acted with egregious behavior

Our objective is to ensure that you face no lasting debt from a pedestrian accident caused by a negligent driver. We will document what has happened to you and aggressively seek every bit of compensation available. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation to discuss your claim.
