    Frequently Asked Questions About Pedestrian Accidents in Camden County, Burlington County, and Throughout NJ

    What if I was cited as partially at fault for the pedestrian accident I was injured in?

    Even if you are found to have been partially at fault for a pedestrian accident that you were injured in, New Jersey’s modified comparative negligence rules may still allow you to file a claim for compensation. Under these rules, an injured plaintiff may pursue a claim for compensation so long as the injured plaintiff was not more at fault for the accident and their injuries than the party or parties they are seeking compensation from. However, if you do bear some share of fault for the injuries you suffered in a pedestrian accident, your total compensation might be reduced in proportion to the percentage of fault assigned to you for the accident, as the comparative negligence system assigns liability for expenses and losses in proportion to each at-fault party’s share of responsibility.

    When do I need to file a lawsuit in my pedestrian accident claim?

    The statute of limitations in New Jersey generally gives you only two years from the date of a pedestrian accident to file a lawsuit against the driver or other parties at fault for the accident and your injuries. Filing suit after this two-year period has expired may result in the court permanently dismissing your claim, which means you will lose the right to recover compensation for your injuries.
