A pedestrian got severe injuries in a Queens vehicle crash that happened on Friday afternoon, March 12, the police said.
The accident happened around 2:15 p.m. at Queens Boulevard and 84th Drive in Briarwood.
The Queens vehicle crash was followed by a loud noise, said a witness. The pedestrian was lying on the ground with a bloody head. The emergency team arrived at the location and took the victim to Jamaica Hospital; the doctors confirmed that the pedestrian was in a critical condition.
The gray Hyundai Elantra that hit the pedestrian had a partially shattered windshield. So far there is no information that the driver was charged.
Pedestrians are the most vulnerable participants in traffic. Not that they aren’t responsible for accidents, but when such a collision happens, these people end with severe injuries that often end fatally.
If you were involved in such an accident, after the initial medical help, make sure to seek an attorney who has a history with such cases. You should be able to file a compensation claim. The insurance company of the liable driver may argue that you weren’t careful, or that you wore dark clothes, and crossed the street in an unmarked place, but it’s important not to give up. The insurers may offer a low settlement. Many people usually accept the first settlement, not knowing that they don’t have to.
Your attorney will advise you to allow them to negotiate for the right offer. Sometimes the insurance company doesn’t offer any good settlement, so the whole case might end in court.
No matter what happened, having an attorney by your side will give you more strength. Your only concern should be recovering instead of worrying about the money.

Cellino Law and more specifically my attorney, Gregory V. Pajak, Managing Attorney, and as a whole the Cellino Law Firm and its organization. This is by far one of the most professional law firms and attorney I have ever engaged with and retained in my 35 years. The level of professionalism goes beyond words, the care and constant engagement with me as the client was touching. I was never ever just treated as simply a CASE with potentially a significant dollar number attached to my file. I was engaged regularly, Tracey (Ass’t) and Greg always made sure to remain constant, as well as consistent in overseeing that my case was handled properly and that it did matter in many ways - ensuring that the end result(s) would be fair and reasonable to my case/injury. The regular follow-up calls were very satisfying, knowing that you’re involved in your case matters significantly AND always. One of my main items to recognize Cellino Law and Gregory is that whenever I called, I was able to get through to speak directly to my Lawyer and he would answer any if not all of my questions in a very professional and genuinely caring manner. I always felt cared for and protected legally and more importantly, I was made feel as a human being that was being cared for and always keeping me abreast of all matters connected to the case. There was never a point I felt let down, on the contrary -the level of service was “STELLAR”. Greg is the consummate professional, a ‘role model’, if you will, for what other attorneys should strive to become when dealing with their clients.
I can only say great things about my attorney Allan Silverstein. He is professional, he calls back right away, he keeps me informed, and makes me feel comfortable as this entire ordeal is stressful. I have total confidence in his ability to handle whatever comes his way. He is no nonsense and very good at his job. Thank you Allan... he is a true asset to the team!
