Buffalo, New York (PRWEB) January 04, 2014
Buffalo-based, Lewis & Lewis, P.C., is reminding Buffalo residents to look both ways before crossing the street. Some of the most dangerous intersections are in New York, and many of the accidents that occur involving pedestrians and cyclists can likely be avoided.
According to a November 25th report by New York Magazine, 14 pedestrians and two cyclists were hit at the intersection of Webster Avenue and East Fordham Road in the Bronx. That number is 131 since 1995.
Though many measures are being taken to improve the safety of the intersection, injuries can still happen quickly and easily if pedestrians and cyclists are not aware of their surroundings.
"It's scary how quickly you can be involved in an accident like this and sustain a serious injury," said Emily Downing, attorney at Lewis & Lewis. "Buffalo has some busy streets too, so it's important to make sure that you look both ways before you cross the street, especially at this time of year when vehicles tend to slide through stop signs and red lights."
Attorneys at Lewis & Lewis are asking pedestrians and cyclists who have been injured to contact Lewis & Lewis to see if it will be possible to pursue a legal case.
