New Jersey Car Accidents

Edison, NJ - One Hurt in Collision on I-287When pedestrians are hurt in car wrecks, they often sustain injuries that land them in the hospital or worse. This is because pedestrians often travel with little to no protection against the force of heavy, fast vehicles. A person who is hit by a car often sustains injuries from three distinct points of the vehicle itself: 

  • Hood
  • Windshield
  • Bumper

These types of impacts often end in severe injuries that may result in:

  • Damage to neck/back
  • Damage to spinal cord
  • Amputation
  • Emotional turmoil
  • Fatality

Usually, pedestrians sustain injuries to their lower extremities when they become involved in car accidents. If you or someone you love was injured in a pedestrian accident, you should contact a pedestrian crash attorney as soon as you can. A lawyer can help you understand your ability to gather financial compensation for the damages you may have suffered related to your collision.

According to information provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, over 93% of the auto collisions that occur in the United States are caused by drivers who are distracted, intoxicated, or fatigued while behind the wheel.  

If someone sustains injuries due to the actions of a negligent driver,  the individual who was hurt can usually collect financial compensation for the damages and losses they endure related to their accident and the injuries that followed. Some of these damages may include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Emotional turmoil
  • Pain
  • Suffering
  • Loss of life enjoyment
  • Lost income
