Pedestrian Accidents in New Jersey
Pedestrians often suffer severe injuries in motor vehicle accidents due to the fact that they have no protection from outside forces. As a result, we see thousands of people left injured as a result of these accidents every year. Unfortunately, many of the injuries that victims suffer are a result of the negligence of other drivers who exhibit carelessness and recklessness on the road. Some of the leading factors in motor vehicle accidents involving pedestrians include drivers who fail to yield, drivers who are distracted, and drivers who pass stop signs and red lights at intersections.
Regrettably, these accidents lead to countless victims suffering head injuries, internal organ damage, broken bones, and other debilitating injuries. The recovery process often requires victims to undergo extensive medical care. Quite often, many victims are left permanently disabled due to the severity of their injuries.
