New Jersey and New York law firm representing personal injury victims of pedestrian accidents.
Unfortunately drivers may not be paying attention while driving; they may be distracted or even texting while driving. Because of its high population density, New Jersey has one of the highest rates of pedestrian fatalities in the country.
Intersections near highway on-ramps are ripe for these types of accidents. Visibility is reduced and speeds are high. Cars often hit pedestrians who are legally crossing in a crosswalk. Unfortunately, this type of car accident often results in serious — potentially fatal — injuries to the pedestrian.
The types of cases that our pedestrian accident lawyers handle include:
Brain Injuries and Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI); Bicycle Accidents; Bus Accidents; Drunk Driving Accidents; Distracted Driving; Garden State Parkway Accidents; Head-On Collisions; Hit and Run Accidents; Intersection Accidents; Side Impact Accidents; Motorcycle Accidents; Multi-Car Crash Accidents; New Jersey Turnpike Accidents; Rear-End Collisions; Rollover Accidents; Single-Car Accidents; Spinal Cord Injuries; Tractor Trailer Accidents; Uninsured/Underinsured Accidents; and Wrongful Death Accidents.
Mintz & Geftic obtained numerous recoveries for pedestrians struck by cars and trucks while crossing the street, regardless of whether they were in a crosswalk, including a $725,000 settlement of an accident where a pedestrian was struck by a truck, and a $400,000 settlement at the time of trial in a Passaic County case where a pedestrian was struck by a car while at work.
