Who is Liable for Your Pedestrian Accident in NJ?

Determining liability, or the financial responsibility of a party deemed at-fault for causing preventable injuries, is a key objective in personal injury cases. It can also be one of the most difficult. That’s because accidents can be caused by many different factors, and unearthing the underlying cause in your accident requires the attention of experienced and resourceful attorneys who know what to look for.

With the help of investigators and accident reconstruction experts, Levinson Axelrod, P.A. scrutinizes the facts of our clients’ cases to identify who can be held responsible for their accidents, and whether there is sufficient insurance coverage to compensate them for their losses.

While the best way to determine liability in a pedestrian accident is to have your case personally evaluated by a lawyer, there are several parties commonly named as defendants in these cases. Examples include:

  • Negligent motorists responsible for car accidents involving pedestrians in intersections, crosswalks, or parking lots.
  • Contractors or companies responsible for construction site accidents involving pedestrians injured by falls, falling objects, or worksite debris.
  • Property owners that fail to rectify known hazards on their premises, including hazards that can cause slip and fall accidents.
  • Commercial trucking companies or bus companies responsible for pedestrian crashes involving a commercial tractor-trailer or passenger carrier.
  • Other pedestrians or bicyclists who negligently or intentionally injure pedestrians.
  • Pet owners responsible for dog bite injuries or animal attacks.

How Compensation Works in Pedestrian Accident Cases

Pedestrian accident victims who bring personal injury lawsuits seek a financial recovery of their damages. As victims of negligence, plaintiffs in these cases are entitled to compensation for both their financial and non-economic damages. This includes losses such as:

  • Hospital and medical bills
  • Expenses for any future required medical care
  • Past and future lost earnings
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional suffering

Because pedestrians lack any form of protection or safety equipment to shield them from suffering severe injuries such as traumatic brain injuries, spine injuries, and broken bones, it is often the case that victims with pedestrian accident claims seek considerable sums for their extensive losses.

This is due in large part to injuries that leave victims with permanent disabilities, the inability to work or perform the same type of work they did prior to accidents, and a variety of expenses and losses they are likely to incur in the future.

In claims involving catastrophic injuries, Levinson Axelrod, P.A. takes great care to pursue the compensation families need, and works with medical experts to calculate the full scope of any future medical needs our clients will face due to their injuries.
