In the majority of cases, your Freehold auto accident lawyer will strive to find fault with the driver of the motor vehicle causing a pedestrian accident.

Finding fault with a driver – in most scenarios, it is the responsibility of drivers or vehicle operators to drive safely without injuring pedestrians. Fault may be shown for a number of reasons such as the at fault party driving while intoxicateddriving distracted, or disobeying posted traffic laws

Premises liability – in some cases, hazardous environments or conditions may be the primary cause of an injurious accident.
