Individuals who have been involved in pedestrian accidents have rights. If you have been injured as a result of a pedestrian accident, you may be able to obtain financial compensation to cover medical costs, lost wages stemming from an absence from work, property damage, and pain and suffering.
A collision between a car and a pedestrian can easily result in catastrophic personal injury or death. While pedestrian deaths regularly account for as many or more deaths than those caused by motorcycle accidents every year, there are typically far less pedestrian accidents. Even though there are less total incidents of pedestrian accidents than there are motorcycle accidents, due to the exposed nature of a person walking along the sidewalk or crossing a street, there is a higher percentage of individuals killed in pedestrian accidents.
Many of the causes of bicycle accidents are also leading factors of pedestrian accidents. If you have been injured in a pedestrian accident or a loved one has been killed in a pedestrian accident because a motorist was inattentive, speeding, failed to give your loved one the right of way in an intersection, or driving while under the influence, The New Jersey Attorneys of Bennett A. Robins, LLC, would like to help. We are committed to protecting the rights of pedestrian accident victims.
