Pedestrian accidents often cause injuries to victims that are far more severe than injuries suffered by the occupants of vehicles in motor vehicle accidents. This is because a person walking along a road or in a developed area lack the protections and safety features of vehicles. Because pedestrian accidents involving a motor vehicle tend to cause severe, life-altering injuries, it is critical that you have a dedicated personal injury attorney on your side who will aggressively advocate on your behalf to obtain the compensation you deserve from a negligent driver.
The pedestrian accident attorneys of Andres & Berger, P.C. will take on the burden of collecting the evidence in your case, determining what exactly happened and who is at fault. We are known to negotiate hard against the insurance companies to ensure that our clients, who have been injured through the negligence or recklessness of a third party, receive the compensation that they deserve. In our experience, we’ve seen it all and aren’t affected by the tricks and scare tactics insurance companies use to get out of responsibility. The New Jersey pedestrian accident attorneys of Andres & Berger, P.C. will fight for your right to recover full compensation for injuries caused by someone else’s negligence.
If you or a loved one were involved in an accident while walking, you need a law firm that is experienced in the legal areas of personal injury and negligence. The Camden pedestrian accident attorneys of Andres & Berger, P.C. are focused on helping people injured through no fault of their own in pedestrian accidents throughout New Jersey obtain the compensation they need and deserve.
As in any negligence lawsuit, we will work to prove:
Many drivers and their insurance companies try to fight pedestrian accidents by casting blame on the pedestrian, alleging that the person walking darted out in front of their vehicle and/or failed to cross at designated crosswalks. Although it is true that pedestrians have rules of the road of their own to follow – such as only crossing the road at designated crosswalks – we will fight against any accusations that you were responsible for your own accident. We will collect all available evidence from the accident scene, including forensic analysis, witness statements, and surveillance video if available.
Having experienced, aggressive legal representation following your pedestrian accident may be the key to obtaining the maximum amount of compensation. Many drivers only carry the minimum amount of bodily injury coverage required by law under their auto insurance policies. But given the severity of injuries that walkers often suffer in a pedestrian accident, these amounts are typically insufficient to cover the medical bills incurred to treat those injuries. In some cases, there may be additional insurance coverage available that an experienced attorney can help a victim to collect upon, especially when the at-fault driver is driving for a business.
Insurance companies and defense attorneys will try to claim that you bear at least some responsibility for your pedestrian accident. The pedestrian accident attorneys of Andres & Berger, P.C. are committed to protecting the rights of our clients who use sidewalks, walkways, and crosswalks to get around on foot. We won’t let insurance companies try to argue that your claim is somehow less valuable just because you were a pedestrian — because you’ve likely suffered far more serious injuries, nothing could be further from the truth. We will work tirelessly to ensure that you obtain the best possible recovery in your pedestrian accident claim.

FAQ: Do I need to go to court to obtain compensation for my injuries?
Many people don’t realize that going to court to pursue a legal claim is often the last resort — most claims are resolved long before they see the inside of a courtroom. When a responsible party acknowledges that they are at fault for the accident and that you have experienced, vigorous legal representation behind you, they are far more likely to offer a fair and full settlement to avoid the unnecessary expense of fighting a losing case at trial.
FAQ: What if I was crossing the street but not at a crosswalk?
Even if the other driver’s insurance company tries to argue that you are somehow at fault for your accident just because you were not crossing the street at a crosswalk, that does not mean you are completely barred from any recovery. New Jersey is a comparative fault state. This means that the parties, or a jury if the matter were to go to trial, determine a percentage of fault assigned to each party involved in the accident. As long as the plaintiff’s fault does not exceed 50 percent, they are entitled to recover compensatory damages, reduced by their share of fault or responsibility, if any.
