Deciding if the driver involved in a pedestrian accident was negligent hinges on several factors. The pedestrian may have been walking, jogging, or standing in a properly designated area when they were hit, but this is not enough to prove that a driver acted negligently and, therefore, is responsible for the resulting injuries. 

An experienced New Jersey pedestrian accident attorney must explain the facts to a jury, proving that the driver of the car failed to exercise reasonable care. Learning all events surrounding the accident is essential to both attorneys and insurance adjustors in establishing the negligence of a driver and moving forward with your New Jersey personal injury claim.  

Pedestrian accident attorneys should have experience and legal proficiency if they hope to garner the maximum settlement or favorable verdict on behalf of their clients.
