Woman Suffers Head Injuries In Brooklyn Pedestrian Accident

Two people were walking at the Bay Ridge intersection of Fourth Avenue and 82nd Street when a car hit them Tuesday morning. A woman suffered head injuries and is listed in serious condition at Brooklyn's Lutheran Medical Center. The second victim was also hospitalized for physical trauma.

The New York Police Department (NYPD) is still investigating, but criminal charges related to pedestrian accidents are rarely filed in NYC unless drunk driving is involved.

Even if the victims make a full recovery, their treatment will likely be expensive. The cost of x-rays, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computed tomography (CT) scans can cost thousands of dollars, and those are just diagnostic tools. The treatment of fractures, internal injuries and brain injuries often involve a long road to recovery and numerous visits to the doctor.

Victims may need compensation for more than just medical expenses, but lost wages, too. In the sad situation where a person becomes temporarily or permanently disabled, they deserve compensation for the negative consequences brought on by the wrongdoer's negligence.

If you or a loved one has been seriously harmed in a Brooklyn pedestrian accident, an experienced New York City injury attorney can help.
