We Handle All Types of Pedestrian and Crosswalk Accident Claims
Pedestrians do not have the protection of a motor vehicle, and when accidents occur severe and catastrophic injuries are almost always the result. That is why our Queens crosswalk accident attorneys will work hard to help you maximize your compensation. We handle all types of accident claims involving pedestrians, including:
- Accidents occurring in crosswalks
- Parking lot and parking garage accidents
- Accidents involving children running into the street
At Addabbo & Greenberg, we will seek compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and all other damages. If you have lost a loved one in a fatal pedestrian accident, we can help you file a wrongful death claim. We understand that no amount of compensation can bring things back to what they were before the accident. However, we can send a message that negligent behavior will not be tolerated.

Sample Personal Injury Results:
$1.5 Million Verdict For Client Caught In LIRR DOOR
On March 3rd, 2020, a New York Supreme Court Jury rendered a verdict in favor of our client who was injured and struck her head when caused to fall by Long Island Railroad door that closed on her. New York attorney Todd Greenberg clearly established through extensive cross-examination of the conductor and the ticket collector that the conductor was actually turned the other way when she should have been watching the door that the Plaintiff exited from. Our client, 71 years old at the time of the accident, was violently pitched to the ground, struck her head and suffered a concussion and subdural hematoma. Luckily, no operation was required, but Plaintiff did suffer cognitive defects for two years after the accident. Prior to trial the offer was $250,000.00 which was rejected. The Long Island Railroad offered $675,000.00 after summations which, upon advice of Mr. Greenberg, Plaintiff rejected. After deliberation for approximately five (5) hours, the Jury returned a $1.5 million verdict on behalf of our client. Mr. Greenberg obtained a verdict for 5 times the amount offered!

$3 Million Settlement for Our Client in Trip and Fall Case
Our client had just left a matinée show on Broadway when, while walking towards the train, tripped on a grating owned and maintained by the New York City Transit Authority. Within two (2) days after the accident, Personal Injury Attorney Todd Greenberg, along with an expert engineer, examined the grating, took detailed pictures and concluded that the grading was an inch and a half above the sidewalk. Citing New York City Laws and Statutes, Plaintiff was granted Summary Judgment against the New York City Transit Authority and the case proceeded to damages. Our client suffered an acute fracture through the three columns of her spine at L3-4 and had to undergo a 13hr. three-part operation. After extensive negotiations with the Transit Authority, Mr. Greenberg was able to negotiate a settlement that ensures that our client will be compensated for her injures and future pain and suffering. Here is what our client said:
Mr. Greenberg took my personal injury case in April 2015. It was a difficult time for me and my husband as well as a difficult physical recovery. Mr. Greenberg, Mr. Rothbard and the wonderful staff of the law office could not have been more supportive. They kept us informed throughout the process; Mr. Greenberg was diligent in working to obtain the best possible outcome for us and through it all so very supportive.
Our case was settled with a very positive outcome. My husband and I cannot begin to express our gratitude to Mr. Greenberg and all of the staff who were so kind to us.
We would highly recommend Mr. Greenberg and his law office to anyone needing assistance with a personal injury case.
With much gratitude, Maureen and Jim

$615,000 Awarded to Person Suffering Injury in Home Depot Parking Lot. This action was commenced after Plaintiff was personally injured during an assault in the parking lot of the Home Depot in Elmont, Nassau County, by another customer. The attorneys for Home Depot, Inc. wrote to Addabbo & Greenberg as follows: Please note that we regard the inclusion of The Home Depot U.S.A., Inc., as a party defendant in this action to be frivolous. Accordingly, please be advised that sanctions will be sought against your clients and your firm for the institution of the action as against The Home Depot U.S.A., Inc. and needless to say, any further steps by your office to pursue this frivolous claim as against the Home Depot U.S.A., Inc., will result in further evidence of your bad faith in pursuing the claim. The person injured in this case was awarded $615,000 in a settlement for personal injuries prior to trial. After thorough research of the issues by New York City and Queens Personal Injury lawyer Mr. Greenberg, and after years of litigation, Home Depot, Inc. settled during jury selection for $615,000.00. (NEW YORK JURY VERDICT REPORTER). Instead of sanctions being paid by Addabbo & Greenberg for bringing a frivolous lawsuit on behalf of a person injured, Home Depot, Inc. paid Plaintiff a substantial sum of money for his personal injuries, based on the theories of negligence Mr. Greenberg developed. Similar results are reported on our Reported Cases.
