63- Year Old Pedestrian Injured in Buffalo Crash

63- Year Old Pedestrian Injured in Buffalo Crash
Calendar icon September 10, 2020

The police responded to what could have been a horrific scene in Buffalo this week. A man was walking on the sidewalk in the 1700 block of Bailey Avenue when the accident happened. It was about 1:20 in the afternoon on Saturday, August 29.

A man driving his vehicle in the Southbound lanes of Bailey Avenue was cut off by another vehicle unexpectedly. When the car drove in front of him, the driver swerved to try to avoid hitting the other vehicle. When he did this, he lost control of his vehicle.

After swerving to avoid an accident, the driver actually went up on the sidewalk and crashed into a building in the 1700 block of Bailey Avenue. At the time, a man was walking out front of the building. The vehicle ended up running the man over.

When the police arrived on the scene, they found the victim on the sidewalk outside the building. He was injured and was treated at the scene. The police indicated that the man did not go to the hospital. No specific update was given on his condition.

The police haven’t released the names of either the pedestrian or the driver. The car that cut off the driver took off and has not been identified. There was also no comment by the manager of the building that was damaged in the crash.

The police are still conducting their investigation. So far, no charges have been filed and the authorities do not believe any will need to be filed. However, the pedestrian will likely have a potential legal claim against the driver. They will have to wait until the investigation is completed.

If you or your loved one are injured in any sort of pedestrian accident, you should call our office right away.

Free Case Review




  • This letter is to thank Ms. Diane D’Andrea, assistant to Mr. George Gridelli, Attny for all the hard work, dedication, and attentiveness she showed during the representation of my case. She was always cheerful and ready to help in whatever way she could. All messages left for Mr. Gridelli were always relayed and Mr. Gridelli always promptly returned our calls. She was a very competent assistant. Cellino Law has proven to be a model of what legal representation should be. Throughout the 6 ½ years of this case, I have heard many horror stories from people with “bad lawyer stories.” We consider ourselves to be very lucky to have chosen Cellino Law and will always recommend you to those looking for good, honest representation with a personal touch.


  • Thank you for all your help. It has been a long journey. At last, the light at the end of the tunnel. Also, thank Tom for the help and work he put in.


  • I just want to let you know that I did receive my settlement check. More importantly, I want to thank you again for all you did for both me and my family. I could not be more pleased with my experience at Cellino Law. From the moment I first spoke with you I felt comfortable - you took a sincere interest in my case, clearly explained the process and effected a quick settlement. From this day forward, when someone asks if I can recommend a good lawyer I will, without hesitation, say "Cellino Law". Thanks again.


  • Choosing the right attorney to represent you after an accident can make all the difference. This is no cliche. I recently experienced these words to live by first hand. After a tractor trailer rear ended me at high speed in 2017 I retained Allan Silverstein to handle my case. I quickly realized that bringing a lawsuit rapidly snowballs into a mountain of details that can make or break your results. Documents, case histories, doctor visits, bills, and lots of phone calls all need to be accurately kept track of if a successful outcome it to be attained. To complicate matters I reside in New York and the incident took place in New Jersey. Luckily, Allan was licensed in multiple states. I was fortunate to find Allan to handle this matter from the New York area. Armed with an accurate account of the facts Allan went to work on the difficult job of negotiating with the defending insurance company as well as my no fault carrier in order to obtain the best possible outcome for my set of circumstances. In a lawsuit communication is key and and events can be of a timely nature. Allan never failed to return my calls - usually the same day! He fought skillfully and respectfully to get me the best possible settlement. He is easy to deal with and a likeable down to earth guy. He always listened with compassion and respect to my issues. He guided me with objective understanding as well as a realistic analysis of the merits of my case. When we finally settled Allan got me a fair agreement beyond my expectations and negotiated with my doctors to make sure all my bills were paid. It was a great experience having Allan represent me. Quality work in any aspect of life is hard to find. Quality is what I got with Allan Silverstein. I highly recommend him if you find yourself in need of a personal injury attorney.


  • It was a great pleasure working with you on my lawsuit. You certainly gave 150% of your time and interest in settling my case and for that, I am extremely grateful. Therefore, I want to thank you very much for helping me win my settlement and wish you the very best.


  • Thank you for your efforts on my behalf. I am very pleased (and surprised) at the amount of the settlement. We will use the funds to help pay down the debt on the truck we had to purchase after ours was totaled. Thank you again.
