Man killed after his disabled vehicle is struck on interstate

Car accidents are unfortunate events that can be very unpredictable. Whether a dangerous condition leads to a car accident, a negligent driver collides with another vehicle or there is a chain reaction of multiple accidents, a car crash could involve several vehicles, severe damages, serious injuries and fatalities. Because car accident could transpire into a very complex event, it is important that the cause and liability associated with the crash is understood.

How prevalent are pedestrian accidents?

Usually at some point of every day, residents in New Jersey are pedestrians. Even if it is for a mere 30 seconds, all it takes for a person to become a pedestrian is to be walking outside. Whether it is on a sidewalk, in a parking lot, residential area, shopping area or in a crosswalk, pedestrians are expected to follow certain rules when traveling near or on roadways. Even more so, motorists are expected to uphold a certain duty when operating a motor vehicle where pedestrians are present or frequent. Failure to do so could cause a motorist to overlook their surroundings and collide with a pedestrian.

With the warm weather still hanging on in most of the country, residents in New Jersey and other states seek to spend more time outside. For some motorists, this means keeping their vehicles at home and walking around the block, to the park, to work or to the store. While it can be an enjoyable time and an excellent source of exercise, walking on or near the streets can be a very dangerous activity. Although traffic rules and regulations seek to improve the safety of pedestrians traveling on sidewalks, in crosswalks and on the side of the road, pedestrian accidents unfortunately still occur at an alarming rate.
