If you've been a victim of a pedestrian or bicycling accident in New Jersey, you may have several questions you want answered before you decide how to move forward. Your situation could be complicated, but you deserve to get all the answers you need before you decide to head to court.
In a case where your child is hurt by a car, is it the driver's fault? Did your child run out in front of the car, and if so, do you have a case? What about in a school zone; if there is no crossing area, who is at fault? These are questions that need to be answered by a professional, so you seek compensation from the right person or people.
When you have injuries, you may be wondering how your bills will get covered. Will the insurance the driver had be enough? If it's not, how do you seek out more compensation to cover all the costs you're accruing?
In most situations involving being hit by a car, the drivers were meant to yield to your right of way, even if you weren't in a crosswalk. However, it clearly doesn't always work out that way. Sometimes drivers aren't paying attention, and other times, they were turning and didn't see you in the way. There's no excuse for striking a person on the roadway, so with the right help, you should be able to seek all the compensation you need to get your life back on track.
