Running Accidents That Might Lead to a Personal Injury Claim

Running is an excellent form of exercise, but it also comes with the risk that you may fall. If you are injured in a running accident that someone else’s negligence caused, you could have the right to seek compensation for the medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering you have endured. Here is what you need to know about running accidents in NYC and how to protect your rights to fair compensation.

Running accidents can result in painful injuries, including broken arms or legs, sprained wrists, and road rash. Treating these injuries can be expensive, but you may be able to offset these expenses by pursuing a claim against the at-fault party.

There are some ways that you can minimize the risk of tripping and falling while running, including:

  • Modify your running stride
  • Wear proper footwear

  • Run on pavement or the road, if possible
  • Run facing traffic
