Every day, many residents of New Jersey head outdoors to take a simple walk. Whether it is in a residential area or in a city, walking could save time and money while also providing a form of exercise. Although there are many benefits to walking instead of driving, there is also the risk that a pedestrian could be struck by a motor vehicle traveling nearby.
When a pedestrian accident occurs, there is a high chance that the person struck will be seriously injured. This is why it is important to establish cause, so fault can be assigned. However, this leads some to question how liability is determined in an auto-pedestrian crash.
