Jogger Hit by a Car? Get Legal Help Now!
While you were going out on a jog, the unexpected occurred: a car hit you, even though you were abiding by the rules of the road (such as utilizing the crosswalk). This has all the appearances of an open-and-shut case; it's clear to you that the driver was at fault for the accident. However, the opposing insurance company is disputing your side of the story and refusing to pay you full and fair compensation for your damages.

The Tangible and Intangible Costs of a Jogging Accident
Due to the nature of pedestrian-car collisions, jogging accidents often result in significant injuries that require extensive treatment and rehabilitation, the costs of which can be quite high. During recovery, victims may not be able to return to their jobs for some time and lose out on valuable wages. In especially severe cases, they may permanently lose the ability to perform their former job duties and suffer a substantial loss of earning capacity.
Victims may also suffer losses that are not financial in nature but are just as devastating in their effects, such as pain and suffering and mental anguish. Some even become so traumatized as to require mental health services.
Whatever the case, it is highly advised that you consult with a NJ car accident lawyer to determine the full extent of your damages.
Proving Your New Jersey Jogging Car Accident Claim
The at-fault driver may try to discredit your account by claiming that you "darted out" into traffic and that s/he did not have the reasonable expectation and time to react. Our legal team can defend your side of the story by:
- Analyzing police and medical reports for details that support your account;
- Presenting photographic and video evidence;
- Working with accident reconstruction experts and other relevant professionals to have them provide supporting testimony;
- Getting witnesses to corroborate your claim; and
- Determining whether drunk driving, distracted driving, or other bad behavior on part of the motorist caused the crash.
We can also accurately assess your damages and fight for full coverage. If negotiations with the insurance company fail, we are more than willing to go to court; in fact, we thrive in the trial setting.
