     November 24, 2008 – The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recently reported an impressive 13 percent drop in the number of pedestrians killed in traffic accidents since 1997, which suggests that pedestrian safety advice distributed by local city governments and schools has made pedestrians more alert to traffic hazards.

Mr. Mark had to demonstrate substantial trial experience and educational involvement, take a rigorous examination in Trenton, New Jersey and obtain recommendations from other attorneys and Superior Court Judges. After review, the New Jersey Supreme Court in 1998 granted Mr. Mark the status as a Board Certified Civil Trial Attorney.

     But that percentage drop is not much of a comfort given that today, on average, a pedestrian is killed in a traffic accident every 113 minutes and injured every 8 minutes. Most pedestrian fatalities in 2007 occurred in urban areas (73%), at non-intersection locations (77%); in normal weather conditions (90%), and at night (67%)..

     For 2007, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that 4,654 pedestrians died in traffic crashes, and approximately 70,000 pedestrians were seriously injured.


Non-vehicular pedestrian knock-down

     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.
