Helping you recover damages following a pedestrian accident

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.

Negligence is often involved in a pedestrian accident, and it is often the motorist that has failed to uphold his or her duty to drive safely. Thus, victims of a pedestrian accident should take the time to understand how the accident occurred, who is to blame and how they can go about recover damages for any injuries, losses and damages.

At Robert A. Solomon, P.C., our experienced legal team understands the tragedy and devastation that can follow a pedestrian accident.

Unfortunately, the size and speed of a motor vehicle causes a pedestrian to suffer severe injuries and much damages.
