New Jersey Pedestrian Accident Attorneys
As operators of heavy machinery, drivers have a responsibility to yield to pedestrians and must take steps to avoid injuring people who are traveling by foot. Sadly, some drivers do not adhere to this duty of safety and many pedestrians are struck by motor vehicles every year, suffering devastating injuries and accruing substantial medical costs throughout the course of their recovery.
If you or someone in your family was struck by a careless driver while riding a bicycle or walking, you need to seek advice from experienced local attorneys about your legal rights. The New Jersey pedestrian accident lawyers at the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm have represented thousands of injury victims and their families for more than 25 years.
Personal Injury Representation for Victims of Bicycle and Pedestrian Accidents
Some personal injury lawyers shy away from accidents involving pedestrians or bicycles, as these cases are rarely as straightforward as car accident cases. Frequently, the injured person’s own insurance policy will not provide compensation, which means that a demand must be made against the insurance company of the responsible driver. At the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm, we have been representing people injured in pedestrian accidents for decades and have seen a variety of these kinds of cases. We have extensive experience in serious pedestrian accident cases such as:
- Accidents in crosswalks or public streets
- Hit-and-run accidents
- Accidents involving children, pedestrians, or bicyclists
- Injuries suffered in public parking lots such as malls, supermarkets, commercial establishments, parking garages, or private driveways
Pedestrian accidents can be challenging to litigate, but the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm works hard to find the responsible party and hold them accountable. If you’ve been hit by a car, you will need legal representation to help you get the compensation you need to recover.
