Any time you suffer an injury because of someone else, you could be entitled to compensation to pay for your injuries and damages. Whether it's medical care or lost wages, it's important to know that you have a right to seek money that can take care of you and allow you to live a better life. If you've been involved in a pedestrian accident, you may understand what this man went through before he died and what the families of a number of others in New Jersey may have faced in the past.
According to the news, a pedestrian was killed while trying to cross multiple lanes of traffic on Route 30 in Absecon. When trying to cross, the man allegedly crossed a concrete barrier. That accident wasn't the only one on the roads over the May 3 weekend; according to the story, another accident that happened on May 3 on the same highway now has people asking the state to do more about what's known as a dangerous highway in New Jersey.
The death of a pedestrian is not an unusual story for this area, according to the news. In fact, four people were killed in Oct. and Nov. 2012, all along Route 30. The Tri-State Transportation Campaign recognizes this road as one of the most dangerous in all of New Jersey, as well as the neighboring road, Route 40. Part of Route 40/322 passes through the shopping centers in Hamilton Township, and that has led to pedestrians having to dodge traffic as they go to and from the area malls.
These roadways aren't built for pedestrians, according to the news, but pedestrians still do have to cross them. People are requesting crosswalks and other ways to cross safety, but those safety techniques haven't yet been implemented.
