Pedestrian And Cyclist Injuries

When pedestrians and cyclists are struck by motor vehicles, the results can be devastating. The statistics bear this out.

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 4,000 pedestrians are killed every year in the United States and more than 70,000 are injured. This averages to one crash-related pedestrian death every two hours, and a pedestrian injury every eight minutes.*

If you or someone close to you has been injured as a pedestrian or cyclist, it is important to understand your rights and to what you may be compensated under law. Having worked on these and similar cases for more than two decades, our New Jersey attorneys are prepared to bring their comprehensive knowledge and aggressive approach to advocacy to help you obtain the compensation you need and deserve in settlement and court.

As with all injury cases, we ask ourselves what it will take to bring the case to trial —what it will take to win. From there, we build a strategy that is designed to get the best possible results. Oftentimes, our rigorous approach to building a case allows us to avoid trial. When the insurance companies are unwilling to settle for what our clients deserve, we are prepared to go to court.

Remember, as a pedestrian, you have the right of way, and drivers must pay attention to cyclists. Get in touch to inform yourself of your rights today.
