Pedestrian Accidents in Oakland
Taking into consideration the unique vulnerability of pedestrians involved in traffic collisions, lawmakers here in New Jersey have implemented legislation that obligates drivers to abide by a very rigorous duty of care. In the event that a driver should forego this duty of care, they are able to be held accountable in civil and criminal court alike.
If you have been involved in any type of accident, it is in your best interest to confer with a personal injury attorney before you speak to anyone else. The driver’s insurance company will typically try to get you to settle the claim for the smallest amount of money possible. Your personal injury attorney will have the skill and the knowledge to make sure you don’t get taken advantage of.
