We are New York’s leading legal advocate for bike riders, pedestrians, and other accident and crash victims. Our lawyers combine fifty years of experience to provide personalized, client-centered representation focusing on the client’s objectives.
We know that for many clients, recovering fair compensation for pain and suffering is not the only goal in hiring a lawyer. Many of our clients need help getting medical care and lost earnings through the no-fault system, and want to see wrongdoers face consequences through the civil, and sometimes the criminal, justice system. In appropriate cases we pursue these additional goals free of charge, and we have a long track record of solid results. We have forced reckless drivers to write letters to victims admitting fault, relinquish their driving privileges, and to pay settlements from their personal funds in addition to paying over the available insurance.
Vaccaro & White are also leaders in the movement to make New York City streets safer for walking and biking. Through impact litigation against NYPD and the Department of Motor Vehicles, work for legislative reform, lobbying elected officials and extensive financial support for victims’ rights groups and other organizations, Vaccaro & White works every day to win for our clients justice that goes beyond compensation, and to end the epidemic of traffic violence on our streets.
