Pedestrian Accident Lawsuits
Pedestrians face real danger when they walk in the vicinity of automobiles. Unfortunately, motorists often don't give pedestrians the respect that they deserve, and many are unaware of pedestrians' legal rights. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 64,000 pedestrians were injured and nearly 5,000 were killed in the United States during 2005. Pedestrian deaths accounted for 11 percent of all traffic fatalities over the course of the year.
If you have been injured because you were struck by a car, truck, or bus, you have rights. If the driver involved in the accident is deemed to be at fault, then he or she can be held liable for damages. However, motorists are not necessarily considered the at-fault party in all pedestrian accidents. If a pedestrian crosses a street without a crosswalk or against the light, a motorist's responsibility to that pedestrian is not the same as if the pedestrian were obeying the rules of the road. At Soloff & Zervanos, P.C., serving New Jersey and Pennsylvania, including Reading and Allentown, a personal injury attorney can review your case and help determine which party was at fault.
Bicycle Accident Lawsuits
The NHTSA reports that 45,000 bicyclists were injured in 2005 and nearly 1,000 were killed. Sadly, nearly one-fifth of bicyclists who are killed are between the ages of 5 and 15.
