Bicyclists and pedestrians are at the mercy of drivers whenever they have to access the same roads, parking areas, and other areas of transportation. There are laws in place to safeguard the vulnerable from injuries caused from motorists driving vehicles, trucks, and motorcycles. If the driver is drunk, distracted, speeding, texting or otherwise not paying attention and strikes a pedestrian or cyclist, they could be held accountable to any injury or deaths that occur.
Did You Get injured while walking or biking?
The law in New Jersey, if a car accident results in injuries or damages, more than one person is possible to be at fault. This can be the case in cyclist and pedestrian accidents, as in motor vehicle accidents. If the pedestrian “jaywalks” when they are struck by a vehicle it is possible that they are partially or entirely at fault for the incident. If the driver was texting, driving or was otherwise reckless it is possible to be held responsible if they have at least 50% accountable for the incident.
If you’ve been struck by a car while cycling or walking on a roadway and suffered serious injuries, there’s an opportunity to claim financial compensation. Most of the time, drivers are responsible, if not entirely responsible for the injuries sustained by pedestrians and cyclists in accidents.
