Pedestrian Crashes in New Jersey
Motor vehicle collisions cause injuries to thousands of pedestrians every year in New Jersey and across the United States. Oftentimes, the negligent, reckless, or careless actions of drivers cause pedestrians to suffer serious, debilitating injuries, or in worst-case scenarios, lose their lives. Although pedestrians can take proactive measures to ensure that they are mindful of others, they cannot guarantee that drivers will take the same proactive approach to protect them. When victims lose their lives in traffic collisions, their families are often left to bear the overwhelming costs of funeral arrangements and other end-of-life expenses. As if dealing with the mental and emotional consequences of a fatal collision was not enough, families are often devastated with financial burdens.
