New Jersey Personal Injury Attorneys Represent Injured Pedestrians

Skilled accident lawyers help those hit by cars and other vehicles in the Woodstown area

When you walk around your neighborhood, you expect to be safe. Crosswalks, stop signs and traffic signals all help to protect you from vehicles in the roadway. Unfortunately, drivers sometimes ignore red lights or fail to stop at crosswalks. In these situations, pedestrians can be hit and may suffer serious injuries. The personal injury attorneys at Sherman Law Offices provide skilled legal representation to injured pedestrians and their families in the Woodstown area and throughout New Jersy in pursuing the compensation they deserve when they’re the victims of negligence.

New Jersey advocates handle a range of accidents involving pedestrians

Pedestrians can be hurt anywhere that people walk. From driveways and parking lots to sidewalks and crosswalks, there is always a possibility of danger from drivers of cars, motorcycles, buses and trucks hitting those on foot.

Some of the most common reasons for these accidents include:

  • Distracted drivers — Drivers cannot pay full attention to the road when they are using a cellphone or any other electronic device. They may also be distracted by passengers, food or even the button on a car radio.
  • Fatigued drivers — Drowsy driving is nearly as dangerous as drunk driving and results in drivers who aren’t fully focused on the road or the pedestrians in front of them.
  • Intoxicated drivers — The use of alcohol or other intoxicants by drivers frequently leads to serious or deadly accidents.
  • Negligence — Drivers often speed, disregard traffic laws or otherwise operate their vehicles recklessly. In these cases, they may be found to be negligent under the law.

Our firm holds all drivers accountable for dangerous behavior and helps victims of pedestrian accidents get the justice and compensation they deserve.

Experienced lawyers understand the severity of pedestrians’ injuries

Those injured in hit-and-runs and other pedestrian accidents may suffer a variety of serious injuries. Broken bones are common, as are injuries to the hands, feet, back and neck. Many pedestrians hit their head during accidents. The head may impact a vehicle, the road or other surfaces. Traumatic brain injuries come in many forms and can range from a minor concussion to serious and debilitating forms of brain damage. Some pedestrians who suffer head injuries lapse into a coma and may never recover. Pedestrians may also be killed when they’re struck by vehicles. At Sherman Law Offices, our injury attorneys represent families in wrongful death lawsuits when they have lost a loved one to a pedestrian accident.

Dedicated attorneys assist clients in recovering compensation for their losses

Depending on the jurisdiction, pedestrians may be able to recover their medical expenses from their own insurance company or the insurer of a family member or they may seek compensation from the driver who was at fault or that driver’s insurer. In most states, victims who have suffered serious injuries are able to recover damages in a lawsuit. These damages usually cover the cost of medical expenses, lost wages and loss of earning capacity. Compensation for mental anguish and physical pain are often awarded in a lawsuit or agreed upon in a settlement. Some states also allow for punitive damages when the driver at fault was intoxicated. The experienced personal injury litigators at our firm will help you understand your rights under New Jersey law and work to get you full, fair compensation for the harm you’ve suffered.
