A personal injury can leave you badly injured in a hospital, with broken bones that make it hard to work, or even with a concussion that impacts your life in the long term. When you suffer a personal injury due to a pedestrian accident in New Jersey, you should be aware that you have a right to seek compensation and justice for the incident. If negligence played a roll in the accident that injured you, the driver may end up charged with a number of crimes.
Pedestrian accidents often seriously injure or kill pedestrians due to the lack of protection they have against the vehicle's weight and speed. In an April 8 report, a man from Rahway has been reported as being in critical condition following a pedestrian accident. The 22-year-old man was struck by an SUV as he attempted to cross the street at the intersection of West Scott Avenue and St. Georges Avenue.
