Pedestrian Accidents in New Jersey
Pedestrian accidents pose a significant concern in the Garden State, occurring at an alarming rate. Despite numerous safety measures implemented over the past decade, negligent drivers continue to cause harm to innocent victims.
Leading causes of pedestrian accidents involve drivers who exhibit behaviors such as running red lights, disregarding stop signs, making improper turns, speeding, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, driving while distracted, and failing to yield the right of way to pedestrians.
