New Jersey Pedestrian Accidents
Pedestrians are at risk of suffering serious injuries when they are struck by a motor vehicle. There are few protections afforded to pedestrians compared to those traveling in a passenger vehicle. That essentially means injuries are often life-threatening.
New Jersey has the highest pedestrian fatality rate in the country. In recent years, the pedestrian death rate has increased by 35 percent. Injured pedestrians should contact a qualified New Jersey pedestrian injury attorney to discuss their options for compensation.
