New Jersey man injured in auto-pedestrian accident

A 25-year-old man hit a 49-year-old man who was crossing the street in Washington Township on March 8th. The man who was hit reportedly sustained leg and hip injuries as a result of the auto accident.

According to police, the driver from Lopatcong was traveling in a Toyota Matrix at approximately 3:35 p.m. on Route 46 west and approaching the Target Driver intersection when he saw the pedestrian enter the roadway from a shoulder on the westbound lane. The driver was not able to stop before he hit the man. The injured pedestrian was taken to a medical center in Hackettstown. Police say that a crosswalk was available in the area but that the man did not use it.

When a person is injured in an auto-pedestrian accident, they may be able to bring forth a personal injury claim to seek compensation for the damages that they sustained as a result of the accident. Before the victim can recover, they must be able to show that the driver acted in a negligent manner. They may be able to show this by proving that the driver was drunk, distracted or otherwise negligent.

Because car accident victims often have limited resources and knowledge of the law, they may retain the services of a Somerville auto accident attorney. An attorney may be able to conduct an investigation into the cause of the accident to help prove liability. Compensation for medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering may be recoverable for the victim of a car accident.
