Police officers face a big responsibility in protecting the public. But sometimes, in the course of protecting,
police accidentally cause personal injuries to bystanders, other cars, buses and other vehicles. Injuries include head injuries, wrongful death, wrongful arrest or excessive force. This is especially true in densely populated cities, such as New York. In fact, New York County is the most densely populated county in the United States. As such, it comes as little surprise that according to ABC News, this Manhattan police officer recently crashed into another vehicle, jumped the curve, and injured a handful of pedestrians. Pedestrians may get struck by cars while walking down the sidewalk, due to no fault of their own. According to US law, such an accident victim is entitled to compensation for his/her injuries. Utilizing a top New York accident lawyer, this pedestrian injury victim received $1.3 Million from a driver who failed to stop and yield right of way. Keep in mind that pedestrian injuries occur to people walking on foot, as well as those traveling by bicycle, skateboard, rickshaw or any other mode.
