Auto Hits New York Girl in High School Crosswalk

Questions Are Raised by New York Personal Injury Attorney David Perecman After a Student Gets Hit by a Car Right Outside Her High School

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - November 24, 2009) - New York personal injury attorney David Perecman raises important questions after reading a New York Post article about a senior who was mowed down by a car in a crosswalk right outside her high school:

"One can't help but wonder why there were no stop signs at the crosswalk. It doesn't sound logical that a school would rely on cars 'routinely' stopping to let pedestrians pass. These are our children. What if the driver was from out of town, not New York?" personal injury attorney Perecman said.

New York personal injury attorneys know that schools have a responsibility to take reasonable care of students to make sure children acting normally are not likely to be hurt. School officials know this too.

"The street may not have been part of the school's property, but you'd like to think someone in charge of the school and student safety would have predicted this would happen, and put safeguards in place, before such a tragedy occurred," said New York personal injury attorney Perecman.
