Pedestrian Accidents

Hunterdon, Somerset and Warren County Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

Compassionate Support After a Pedestrian Accident

Were you hit by a distracted driver? Did you lose a loved one to a pedestrian accident? Was your child hit by a car near his or her school or in a school crosswalk?

Countless pedestrian accidents happen daily throughout the United States. While some involve slow speeds and small injuries, all pedestrian accidents have one thing in common: someone was not paying attention. At the Murgatroyd Law Group, we handle pedestrian accident cases involving serious injuries and wrongful death. If you or your loved one was injured or killed by a negligent driver, contact us.

Pedestrian Accidents and Children

Many children do not understand how cars work; they think that cars stop immediately and that they can outrun them. They have one-third less peripheral vision than adults and cannot accurately discriminate and judge sound to know where the car is coming from. Therefore, all drivers must be on the lookout for children at all times. Drivers must be particularly cautious around schools and playgrounds, where pedestrian accidents involving children often occur.

If your child was hit by a car, you want a pedestrian accident attorney who is going to find answers to your questions and seek justice for you. You want an attorney who is sensitive to your needs and the needs of your child. Anthony J. Murgatroyd will do all of that and more.

Pedestrian Accidents and Elderly People

Walking across the street should not be a scary experience. Yet, when you are unable to get from one sidewalk to the next before the light turns red, it can be. Elderly people are not as quick and agile as younger people. They can only hope that the cars will wait for them to cross the street, driveway, or parking lot.

When an elderly person is hit by an impatient driver, the results can be catastrophic. The driver must be held accountable.

An Important Note About Crosswalks

Were you hit while jaywalking? Did you forget to use the crosswalk? Pedestrians must use crosswalks when they walk across busy streets. Not using the crosswalk can be used against you and weaken your case.
