Pedestrian Injuries

     Besides traffic incidents, thousands of pedestrians are also injured every year in non-vehicular accidents. Causes vary for these injuries, and include poor property maintenance, sidewalk obstacles or dangerous debris on pedestrian pathways and sidewalks. Whatever the cause of the pedestrian knock-down, a person may recover financial compensation for the injury if the accident was the fault of another party.

 Mr. Mark has decades of experience defending the rights of the injured in practice areas that include pedestrians, auto accident victims, nursing home abuse victims and many other personal injury type accidents.

If you were injured in a pedestrian knock-down accident, or suffered any kind of personal injury through no fault of your own, please call Michael A. Mark, Esq. for a free consultation at 973-423-9000.
