Our New Jersey pedestrian accident lawyers are familiar with the physical difficulties that often come with pedestrian injuries.

These accidents are usually debilitating. Common injuries include things like broken bones, brain damage, and organ damage.

The injuries sustained by a pedestrian can impact the rest of their life. Due to this, injured pedestrians most likely have grounds to pursue financial compensation for their injuries, provided that the accident was the result of driver negligence.
