Pedestrian accidents happen for various reasons. For any of the following Cherry Hill pedestrian accident scenarios, contact a distinguished lawyer. Discussing your injuries and the details of your accident with a pedestrian accident attorney can be helpful in your pursuit for damages.
Pedestrians are often injured at crosswalks. Many pedestrian accident scenarios in Cherry Hill involve crosswalks because drivers of motor vehicles are distracted or not yielding the right of way or driving at excessive speeds.
Pedestrian accidents happen in parking lots quite frequently. Whether it is on a private property or public property, there is no question that motor vehicles have to take reasonable steps to be alert of their surroundings, particularly in parking lots because they know where the pedestrians are walking about. There is are a lot of Cherry Hill pedestrian accident scenarios in parking lots because drivers are often in a hurry or distracted or not paying attention to their surroundings, and this will cause significant injury.
Unfortunately, there are a lot of local shopping areas where people are moving in and out of parking lots. There is a high number of Cherry Hill pedestrian accident scenarios involving cars backing up, particularly in parking lots. Usually, the drivers of vehicles are in a rush or not taking the time to make sure areas are clear as they back up their cars and this causes significant injuries to pedestrians.
Regardless of location, an investigation of both public and private properties would be handled the same way. The main goals of that investigation include preserving evidence, locating any possible witnesses, and reviewing facts to determine who was at fault for the accident.
There may be different legal issues surrounding Cherry Hill pedestrian accident scenarios at a private versus public lot with respect to giving certain notices under the law and things of that nature to a public entity. It is very important to anybody involved in a pedestrian accident to immediately contact at attorney to make sure all their rights are protected.
Many Cherry Hill pedestrian accident scenarios involve people on foot having to share the roadway with motor vehicles and vice versa. There may be times when somebody is walking along a roadway with no sidewalks. Motor vehicle operators need to be aware of these situations and respect pedestrians on the roadway. The rules of the road insist there are mutual responsibilities of pedestrians and operators of motor vehicles, as both must share the road.
Attorneys are involved in many Cherry Hill pedestrian accident scenarios where someone is struck by a car as it was turning on a red light while they were trying to cross the street on foot. Motor vehicle operators have a responsibility before they turn right on red to make sure that the area is clear before turning. Pedestrians who have the right of way at a stop need to be very mindful of cars turning right into their path of travel and also need to be alert, but certainly the driver of the motor vehicle has to be very vigilant in taking observations before proceeding to make a right-hand turn on a red.
In many Cherry Hill pedestrian accident scenarios, the pedestrian is injured while crossing a street. Motor vehicles, before they make a left and cross an intersection, have an obligation to make sure the area is safe and that there is no immediate hazard. A pedestrian crossing the roadway also has a responsibility to make sure the area is safe as they proceed across. Both have mutual responsibilities with respect to safety. However, there is a potential for the driver of a vehicle to accelerate at a much quicker pace, causing a lot more damage in striking a pedestrian.
Pedestrian accident scenarios can involve not only a school bus, but also public transportation buses as well as charter buses. Anytime there is a collision between a pedestrian and a bus, the injuries tend to be more significant. However, the law may apply differently depending on the type of bus. For example, a school bus or a public bus may have some protections of the law because they are related to a public entity.
Any pedestrian who has been involved in an accident with a bus should take immediate steps to contact an experienced attorney who can protect their rights, because public entity buses have certain notice requirements and other legal hurdles that must be overcome.
Our attorneys are involved in numerous pedestrian accidents at public bus stops or with public buses. Public bus drivers are trained on how to properly stop, how to load and unload passengers, and how to make sure the area is safe before proceeding. Typical bus stop injuries can be sustained from getting onto a bus or exiting a bus because its driver moved the vehicle too soon or parked or stopped it in an inappropriate location and exposed the pedestrian to dangers.
Our attorneys have been involved in countless Cherry Hill pedestrian accident scenarios involving stop signs because drivers of motor vehicles fail to stop or fail to yield to the person on foot attempting to cross at the intersection. Stop signs are like any other traffic signal and must be followed not by drivers, and those who arrive at stop signs need to have a heightened sense of responsibility, particularly in a high pedestrian traffic areas.
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.

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.

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.
