New Jersey man indicted in pedestrian accident caseRobert A. Solomon, P.C.
Getting into a pedestrian accident is dangerous; in fact, many times, it’s deadly to those who have been hit. The combination of a vehicle traveling at high speeds with the lack of protection a body has leads to people being at risk of severe injuries and death following these accidents. When they or their families face that reality, it’s important that the person at fault is held responsible.
A driver who is accused in a fatal pedestrian accident that took place in New Jersey has been indicted for the crime. According to the news from Jan. 4, the southern New Jersey man had allegedly struck and killed a pedestrian with his automobile in the fall of 2014.
The indictment may not come as a surprise; the man, a 74-year-old from Camden, New Jersey, had been legally drunk at the time of the accident in October. He struck a 53-year-old man as he was attempting to cross the street in Camden. The man initially survived the incident, but he was later pronounced dead at the hospital.
The 74-year-old man turned himself in when he found out that he was going to be indicted for the crime. He posted a $150,000 cash bail and was released.
In this case, one poor choice led to another person’s death and his family experiencing the loss. If your case is similar to this one, and if you’re dealing with the loss of a loved one, you don’t need to go through this alone. With the right help, you can take a civil lawsuit to court and seek the compensation you need to care for your loved ones, pay bills associated with the accident and move forward with your life.
