New Jersey Pedestrian Crashes
Pedestrian accidents are some of the most devastating collisions that occur in the United States. Pedestrians usually suffer injuries that are more severe than those who suffer injuries while inside passenger vehicles involved in collisions. This is obviously due to the fact that pedestrians travel with no protection.
Every year, in New Jersey alone, over 200 pedestrians end up losing their lives in traffic collisions. Approximately 30% of the deaths that occur in auto collisions in the Garden State involve a pedestrian.
When you or a loved one has been injured in a pedestrian crash, you may be dealing with a lot of different problems.
