Pedestrian Injuries in New Jersey

Middletown, NJ - Elderly Man in Wheelchair Hit by Car, Seriously Injured on Rt 35 at Harmony Rd

Our New Jersey pedestrian accident lawyers know the physical challenges that often accompany pedestrian injuries. Despite numerous safety measures and regulations devised to improve pedestrian awareness and safety, such as sidewalks, crosswalks, and walking bridges, pedestrians are still hit by motor vehicles every day. These accidents are usually debilitating. Common injuries include things like broken bones, brain damage, and internal bleeding. 

The injuries sustained by a pedestrian after being struck by a car can permanently impact the rest of their life. Due to this, injured pedestrians are justified in seeking financial compensation for their injuries, provided that the accident was the result of driver negligence.  

Studying all events surrounding the accident is crucial to both insurance adjustors and attorneys in proving the negligence of a driver and moving forward with your New Jersey personal injury claim.
