There are various types of Camden pedestrian accidents that can cause serious injury consequences. If you have been harmed by any of the scenarios listed below, do not hesitate to contact a distinguished pedestrian accident lawyer to file a claim.
A pedestrian accidents involving crosswalks happen frequently and what is important in these cases is that when a pedestrian is in a crosswalk in the state of New Jersey, there is no doubt about it that the motor vehicle has to yield the right of way to that pedestrian and when they do not and they strike a pedestrian and that pedestrian is injured, they are clearly at fault and their insurance company is responsible to that pedestrian for all the damages that they have caused.
Pedestrian accidents involving cars backing up in Camden are also frequent, whether it is in a parking lot or just on the roadway. When someone is backing up, they need to make sure that there is nothing behind them, especially a person.
With technology, this is happening less and less frequently because a lot of times cars have rear-view cameras now and back up sensors that are preventing this, but it is still seen and can result in significant injuries.
A pedestrian accident in a parking lot is really the same as if it was on a roadway. There are crosswalks and areas that pedestrians are supposed to walk in Camden parking lots. Local laws apply even if it is private property. Meaning, an individual needs to yield the right of way to pedestrians. Even though the individual is on a private property does not mean now that they do not have to follow motor vehicle laws, they still have to look out for them and not hit a pedestrian.
What attorneys have often seen pedestrian accidents with cars exiting parking lots onto the street. They typically lack of checking for pedestrians on crosswalks or sidewalks surrounding the lot. When a person is exiting a parking lot they have to not only look for other vehicles, they have got to make sure that there are no pedestrians in the roadway or on the sidewalk that they are going to hit because they will be responsible for any damages caused.
There are not a ton of Camden pedestrian accidents on streets with no sidewalks but they typically happen when a driver does not see a pedestrian walking on the side of the road. When this happens drivers are sometimes unable to apply their brakes and end up causing significant injuries, sometimes even catastrophic injuries.
Pedestrian accidents involving cars turning left happen frequently across the intersection. The reason for this is when a car making a left is only looking for whether or not it is safe to turn and clear of other vehicles. Often, they do not look for the pedestrian, they make their left hand turn, and they cause that pedestrian accident, which a lot of times results in serious injuries.
The pedestrian accidents involving buses can be more frequent and it is simply because a lot of times a person is dealing with more people in the area where the buses are. There tend to be more accidents involving buses. However, the school buses especially have gotten better with technology that makes it easier for the school bus operator to see these kids get off the bus. There should never be an instance where a school bus strikes a child. If it happens, that means something wrong occurred because there are safeguards put on these buses now to prevent that from occurring.
This team is incredible. They are friendly and knowledgeable. I appreciate everything they have done for me and would recommend them to anyone. Overall great experience
My case settled recently after lasting 4 years. Grungo and Colarulo’s law firm were able to secure a large settlement award for my slip and fall accident. This money will help secure my future for the permanent injury I received as a result of the slip and fall. Everyone was very caring, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. Christine Lafferty is an excellent litigation lawyer. I highly recommend using them if you have been injured or in an accident. I hope I am never in a situation again to need their services, but I know who to go to if I, or any of my family members are ever injured. Thanks Grungo and Colarulo and staff for your compassionate service!
Thank you so much Grungo and Colarulo for helping me with my case. Special thanks to Erica Domingo, Esquire and her team. Erica Domingo and her team was very nice and helped me tremendously throughout my case like more than one year and half. They gave me the right advice and guided me through every step of my case. They gave me prompt and clear responses to all my questions. In addition, Erica and her team provided me with all the what if scenarios so that I can have a clear vison of the steps ahead.
I would definitely recommend Grungo and Colarulo.
Thanks again Erica Domingo, Esquire and her team
My wife and I reached out to Grungo Colarulo in 2020 for advise on a legal matter. After a meeting with the Attorney and Paralegal, we decided to go forward with a case. This case required a lot of documentation, and expert review of the documentation which was aquired. Throughout the process, we were kept up to date monthly, and Grungo Colarulo was always responsive to any questions that we had. The entire staff at Grungo Colarulo are very professional, caring, and willing to go the extra mile. This firm is a definite recommend!
I left five (5) stars only because that’s as many as I could leave. If I could, I would have left 100 stars. Bob & Christine are the absolute best! My settlement far exceeded what I ever imagined. They are professional, friendly, and really listened to what I had to say. They kept me up to date with the progress of my case every step of the way. I can’t recommend them highly enough.
Very professional, communicates well, makes me feel like they have my best interest at heart, and overall just a great company. Christine and the whole team has been on top of everything. Would definitely recommend!! 10/10
First and foremost I would like to thank the whole team at Grungo Colarulo!! In addition to that, Stephanie & Riley & Drenna have done such an outstanding job taking care of me in such a difficult and low point of my life.

A dear family friend referred us to a young attorney named Rich Grungo, Jr. We wanted answers and if necessary, justice for our father. From day one of a five-year journey, Mr. Rich Grungo, Jr. made our family and our pain his own. The man never stopped working for us. He kept us informed every step of the way. Questions were answered quickly and with great compassion and expertise. Even though Rich was always busy, he was never too busy for us. We always felt like we were his only clients
I had the opportunity to observe Mr. Grungo work in this case, both in the courtroom on the technical matters of the motions and also as his presentation to the jury in opening and presenting witnesses as well as utilizing animations… and drawings and films that were necessary for a proper understanding of the case…At all times during the presentation, Mr. Grungo operated mostly without notes and questioned the witnesses in a conversational manner which made it most effective. **
Thank you for everything. I honestly felt like you treated my son like he was your own son, for that I am grateful. I would recommend your services to anyone. Thanks for being so awesome to both of us.
It was a pleasure working with Bill. He constantly kept me informed. I would recommend Bill and his firm to anybody I know. They’ll be in good hands.
I had the opportunity to retain Mr. Colarulo for a vehicle accident I encountered. I give him my highest recommendation for anyone in need of an excellent Personal Injury Attorney. Not only does he have an in depth knowledge of the legal field, but he emanates a sense of trust-worthiness that makes you feel secure during the entire process. Mr. Colarulo has the knowledge, drive and enthusiasm that will get the job done for you. He comes highly recommended.
Hi Rich, Well I’m on my way up to college to finish packing my son’s stuff up and to go to his Graduation tomorrow. It’s hard to believe how fast and how slow, at the same time 5 years can go by. I was just thinking of you as I am getting ready to leave and wanted to thank you once again for everything you have done for my son’s future. You are a good and just man. God Bless to you and your family.
