Pedestrian Accidents in Newark, New Jersey
Walking is one of the most popular methods of transportation. Although most people are able to walk short distances, we are not seeing a major health push aimed at getting more people out of their homes and traveling on foot. Although walking is viewed as a safe and effective activity, it does not come without dangers. In fact, sharing the roads with negligent motorists can be extremely dangerous and is the cause of countless injuries.
Every year, hundreds of pedestrians are left with critical and life-altering injuries after motor vehicle accidents throughout our state. Given the fact that pedestrians are more vulnerable to vehicles in collisions, they are more likely to suffer critical and life-threatening injuries. These accidents are often caused by motorists who are negligent in operating their vehicles.
When drivers speed, run red lights, travel impaired, and even use their phones while controlling their vehicle, they place others sharing the road at risk. In many instances, victims are left with neck and back injuries, TBIs, and other devastating injuries that require extensive medical treatment. In some cases, victims can reach out to a pedestrian accident attorney in Newark to protect their legal rights.
