Pedestrian Crashes in New York
Pedestrian accidents occur in New Jersey all too often. Truthfully, preserving the safety of pedestrians has become difficult and problematic in the Garden State, to such a concerning degree that the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority has implemented a program called Street Smart in order to raise awareness about pedestrian safety.
It was reported by the NJTPA that more than 175 pedestrians were killed in auto accidents across the state over the period of a year. This doesn’t include the several hundred pedestrians who are hurt yearly due to driver negligence.
Every time a pedestrian goes for a walk, jog, run, or bike ride, they are at risk of sustaining catastrophic or even deadly injuries if they become involved in an accident with a vehicle. While things like jaywalking can definitely lead to collisions, most pedestrian wrecks are caused by the actions of negligent drivers who fail to yield the right-of-way.
If you or someone in your family has suffered serious injuries in a pedestrian accident, you are legally entitled to file a personal injury claim against the individual, people, or entity responsible for your injuries.
