If you have been struck as a pedestrian by any type of motor vehicle, you may have suffered severe and extensive injuries. These injuries can range from whiplash to death. A pedestrian can take place anywhere that motor vehicles, such as cars. trucks, motorcycles or buses travel. Under New Jersey law, operators of moor vehicles are under a duty to exercise for the safety of others the degree of care and precaution which a reasonably careful person would exercise under similar circumstances. The motor vehicle operator must make observations for pedestrians who are or may come into the path of travel.
