Piergrossi & Peterman, LLP
Representing Citizens of New York since 1967
New York City streets and sidewalks are among the most dangerous in the country. Unlicensed drivers, distracted drivers, uninsured drivers. They are all out there, leaving you at their mercy every time you try to cross the street or ride in a bike lane. Getting hit by a car when walking or biking in New York City can leave you with a serious injury and a sense of frustration as you try to recover money damages from an insurance company.
The personal injury litigation firm of Piergrossi & Peterman, LLP, has extensive trial experience helping pedestrians and bicyclists recover money from insurance companies. Often, there is more than one party who can be held liable for damages. Was the street properly marked? Was the sidewalk safe? Or was the adjacent property owner negligent? Was the driver of the car insured? Or will you have to find other insurance options to collect payment? These are the questions we immediately investigate. For more than four decades we have been recognized for our dedication to meeting our clients' needs. If you have suffered an injury in a pedestrian or bicycle accident, we will aggressively fight for the compensation you are entitled to.
We have experience handling injury and wrongful death cases involving:
•Pedestrian accidents in crosswalks
•Bike messenger accidents
•Bike lane accidents
•Sidewalk and street accidents
•Assault injuries, insufficient security
After your bike or pedestrian accident, you may want to talk to a lot of different lawyers. We want you to talk to us first. There aren't many law firms that do what we do. We immediately begin every case by preparing it for trial. Law firms that would rather settle out of court often end up asking you to accept a low settlement offer because they are not prepared for court until it is too late. That has a chilling effect. We don't wait to find out what the insurance defense lawyers will do first. We start your lawsuit immediately.
