Causes Of Pedestrian Accidents
Pedestrian accidents happen for many different reasons. Often, it’s because a driver wasn’t paying attention or behaving in a reckless manner. More specifically, some of the most common causes of pedestrian accidents include:
- Distracted drivers
- Texting drivers
- Speeding drivers
- Drunk drivers
- Tired drivers
All it takes is one small mistake by a driver to cause a serious or potentially fatal pedestrian accident. Whatever the circumstances surrounding your pedestrian accident, we want to help you hold the driver who caused your crash accountable for his or her actions.
Our Pedestrian Accident Attorneys Want To Help You
Pedestrian accidents might seem straightforward. A driver clearly did something wrong to cause your accident. So, all you have to do is call the police, contact your insurance company and they will take care of everything, right?
Don’t be so sure. In many cases, many New Jersey pedestrian accidents turn out to be far more complicated. Sometimes, it’s because the driver who caused your injury denies doing anything wrong. Or they might try to point the finger at you, claiming you somehow caused the accident.
Depending on the circumstances of your crash, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your accident-related expenses. In some cases of serious injury, you may have the right to file a lawsuit against a negligent party. You may be able to recover both economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages are the financial effects of the accident. This can include your loss of income, medical bills, and other financial burdens from the accident.
Non-economic damages are the human losses that you suffer. These damages can include the pain you experienced, the effects on your quality of life, and how your life has been altered by the negligence of the other party. When pursuing damages, it is important to discuss your matter with a lawyer that can assess your case and help you make informed decisions about your legal matter. Depending on what type of insurance you have, there may be limits on how much money you can collect for pain and suffering, due to New Jersey’s insurance laws.
