At Lomurro Law, our New Jersey pedestrian accident attorneys successfully pursue personal injury claims following an accident.

We take action for you and won’t stop until you get the favorable outcome you deserve.
Recovering Compensation For Your Injuries Requires A Skilled Pedestrian Accident Lawyer
As increased emphasis is placed on the importance of health and wellness, more people are choosing to walk to work, school and other activities. Recent studies from the Federal Highway Administration showed that walking at least three days per week has become a habit for nearly 51% of the population. As more and more people choose walking over driving or riding public transportation, pedestrian accidents also gain more attention. If you are injured while walking by a negligent driver, you may be able to recover full compensation for:
- Pain and Suffering
- Current and future lost wages – If your injuries leave you unable to work or require you to change professions, either temporarily or permanently, you are entitled to proper compensation for your lost wages.
- Medical expenses – Medical treatment for your injuries may require expensive surgeries, extensive physical therapy and rehabilitation and numerous doctors’ visits.
- Emotional distress – We work hard to ensure that you receive damages for the emotional and psychological pain and suffering caused by your accident.
To pursue a personal injury claim, you must adhere to the statute of limitations which typically requires that you file a claim within two years. Our New Jersey accident attorneys work tirelessly to obtain the results you need to move on with recovery in the best possible way.
Leading Causes Of Pedestrian Accidents
Driving under the influence of alcohol is one of the most common factors in pedestrian accidents. The NHTSA reported that alcohol use played a role in 49% of fatal pedestrian accidents in 2013. In addition, pedestrian accidents are more likely to occur at night and during inclement weather due to reduced visibility. Nearly one-fifth of fatal pedestrian crashes involved hit-and-run drivers that failed to stop after causing an accident. Regardless of the circumstances surrounding your accident, we’re here to stand up for your rights and get the results you need to achieve a full recovery.
