Pedestrian Accidents in Coram
Legislators in New Jersey have tried hard to prioritize pedestrian safety. According to the Division of Highway Traffic Safety, our state has a higher percentage of pedestrian-involved accidents than any other state in America. Senior citizens, non-English speaking residents, and children are the three classifications of people with the greatest odds of being injured or killed in a pedestrian accident.
If you have been involved in any type of accident, it is in your best interest to confer with a personal injury attorney before you speak to anyone else. The driver’s insurance company will typically try to get you to settle the claim for the smallest amount of money possible. Your personal injury attorney will have the skill and the knowledge to make sure you don’t get taken advantage of.
If you or someone you love has been injured or killed in a pedestrian-involved accident then you may have a right to financial compensation to cover any damages such as hospital bills, lost wages due to time away from work, pain and suffering, or even wrongful death.
