18-year-old man killed in hit-and-run accident in New Jersey

If you're a pedestrian who is walking near the roadways, you're always at risk of being in an accident with a dangerous driver. If an accident takes place on the roads, a car could come onto the sidewalk. If you're crossing in a crosswalk, a speeding driver could fail to stop and then strike you. There are a multitude of scenarios that could lead to your injury or death; many of which take place on the roads each day.

When these things happen, it's your right to speak with your attorney and make a claim for compensation. You were an innocent bystander who was involved in this collision, even though you did nothing wrong. Making a claim is what may happen in this case when the man's family gets involved following his wrongful death.

According to the story from Nov. 11, a motorcyclist was charged with a hit-and-run accident following the death of a pedestrian. The man had been walking home from work when he was hit by the motorcyclist on Routes 1 and 9 heading north.

This situation was made worse when the motorcyclist fled the scene, leaving the 18-year-old man in the roadway on his own and without any indication of medical care on the way. The 18-year-old man was then hit by another vehicle as it approached on the highway, although police have not indicated which accident caused the fatality or if the second vehicle's driver has been charged. The news reports that the motorcyclist, a 37-year-old person from Elizabeth, has been charged with the death and for knowingly leaving the scene of the accident.
