Tenaglia & Hunt Settles Case Involving Pedestrian Struck by Car in NYC
on August 14, 2015on August 14, 2015
Tenaglia & Hunt, led by partner James Hunt, recently settled a case in which its client, a pedestrian, was struck and injured by a car while crossing the street in Manhattan. The Mayor of New York City has made pedestrian accidents like this a major issue in his administration. Citing the rising and unfortunate epidemic of pedestrian accidents in NYC , the City recently created the “Vision Zero” commission to decrease pedestrian injuries and fatalities. Indeed, in 2013 alone, 16,059 pedestrians and cyclists were injured in traffic accidents, while 178 were killed in traffic incidents. New Yorkers hope the Vision Zero efforts succeed so that pedestrian accidents are significantly reduced as quickly as possible.
