Deadly Pedestrian Crashes in New Jersey

Walking can be great for the environment, and it has the added benefit of being a simple way to get around. On the other hand, pedestrians are particularly vulnerable in the event of a crash. The Garden State’s roads are notoriously hazardous for pedestrians. Hundreds of people are killed by cars every year in the state, where nearly 30 percent of pedestrians in the state report being hit by a car. Pedestrians continue to account for a disproportionate number of fatalities on American roads, and victims must work with an experienced lawyer to build a compelling case for compensation.
