Pedestrian Accidents in New Jersey

Newark, NJ – Pedestrian Struck by Vehicle at Spruce St & Martin Luther King Jr BlvdEvery year, thousands of people in the United States are hurt in pedestrian accidents. We see a significant number of crashes each year sent these innocent victims to area hospitals with moderate to severe injuries. Pedestrians are unprotected in collisions, which greatly increases the likelihood that they will be severely harmed. These preventable accidents continue to send victims to area hospitals where they are forced to deal with overwhelming mental, physical, and financial burdens. In many cases, pedestrians sustain broken bones, spinal cord injuries, and even traumatic brain injuries that greatly impact their health and wellbeing. 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.
