Pedestrian Accidents in New Jersey
Thousands of victims incur devastating injuries in pedestrian accidents throughout New Jersey each year. Despite the fact that our state maintains strict laws to protect pedestrians, we continue to see these people victimized at an alarming rate. Living in the New York and New Jersey area means you are very familiar with the hustle and bustle of our roads. Each day, thousands of people travel throughout the area for pleasure and business. Although we want to believe that other people sharing the road have our best interests in mind, this is not always true. In fact, distracted driving, impairment, reckless driving, and other driver actions account for nearly 80% of all traffic-related accidents we see each year. Many people involved in collisions are left with life-altering injuries that force them into local hospitals where they have to go through emergency surgery and spend days hospitalized.
Although there are a variety of treatment options available for victims, there is no promise that they are going to have effective results. In fact, thousands of accident victims are left permanently impaired and forced to endure ongoing mental, physical, and financial consequences. When victims sustain injuries in preventable accidents, it is imperative that they take quick actions to ensure their legal rights and best interests are protected. When people are injured in accidents, due to the reckless actions of drivers, it is imperative that they reach out to a pedestrian accident attorney in New Jersey as soon as possible.
