Anytime a pedestrian is struck by a motor-vehicle, the impact can lead to serious injuries and even death. Thousands of pedestrians are gravely injured or killed each year in traffic accidents.
Some of the most common cases include drivers who don’t observe road signs, drivers who are speeding, and those who don’t obey stop lights and stop signs. Poorly marked crosswalks or drivers who are unfamiliar with right-of-way laws can also lead to these devastating accidents.
Pedestrian accidents are overwhelming, for both you and your loved ones. Your priority, first and foremost, after an accident should be getting back on the road to recovery both physically and emotionally. You shouldn’t have to worry about how you’re going to pay for that recovery. Not to mention, the headache of dealing with work and insurance companies.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is the Driver Always at Fault When a Pedestrian Accident Occurs?
In most cases when a pedestrian is hit in an accident, the driver of the car or motor vehicle is considered to be at least partially to blame.
Motorists owe a special duty of care to pedestrians and must operate their vehicles responsibly and safely. If a pedestrian was in a crosswalk, the driver is almost always considered to be at fault since the pedestrian has the right of way. New Jersey law gives pedestrians the right of way at crosswalks and intersections by requiring that drivers yield to pedestrians at crosswalks at intersections, and remain stopped until a pedestrian has finished crossing.
Pedestrians do, however, also have a duty of care that includes looking both ways before crossing and using designated crosswalks at the correct time. Pedestrians who run or dart into the road, giving the driver no chance to avoid the pedestrian, or those who may be intoxicated or distracted while walking may hold some partial liability in the event of an accident. In New Jersey, even if you were partially at fault for the accident, you still have a right to comparative compensation.
