Pedestrian Accidents

Hoboken and other communities in New Jersey are known for being walking areas. Although the law here requires vehicles to yield to pedestrians — even in uncontrolled intersections — that does not always happen. If you were hit by a car while crossing the street, you may be entitled to compensation.

At the law office of Greenberg, Walden & Grossman, LLC, we represent pedestrians in Hudson County and throughout New Jersey who suffered injuries because of the negligence of a driver. Pedestrian accidents can be caused by numerous factors, but some of the most common causes of pedestrian accidents include:'

  • Driver inattentiveness
  • Texting while driving
  • Programming a GPS
  • Driver confusion
  • Aggressive driving
  • Dangerous intersections
  • Making a left turn
  • Making a right turn
  • Making a U-turn
  • Backing up

Who Can Be Held Accountable For The Accident?

After an accident, the negligent party can be held responsible for paying for the damages. In many situations, the negligent party is the driver who hit the pedestrian. However, a government entity may be held accountable for a dangerous intersection, lack of proper warning signs or for accidents caused by public transportation. Regardless of who is at fault, our attorneys can help you receive the full and fair compensation to which you are entitled.

If you were injured in a crosswalk accident or another type of pedestrian accident, an experienced lawyer can help ensure the negligent party or parties are held accountable.
