New Jersey roadways are often scenes of motor vehicle collisions. Not every incident involves multiple vehicles, however, as made evident by a recent incident that resulted in personal injury. When single-vehicle collisions occur, they are often later found to have been caused by driver negligence.
Numerous negligence situations can lead to one-car accidents. For instance, if a driver is traveling at excessive speeds, there is a greater risk for collision. Driving distractions often lead to crashes as well, such as eating and drinking while driving, or using hand-held electronic devices.
It is no secret that drunk drivers are menaces on New Jersey roads. One never knows when an intoxicated driver might be nearby. However, even if a motorist notices signs of possible drunk driving in another vehicle, there is no guarantee that he or she would be able to react quickly or safely enough to avoid collision. Investigators are typically charged with the task of finding answers to the questions regarding who may have been directly responsible for a particular accident.
On a recent Sunday, a car was headed in a southbound direction when it suddenly flipped over onto its roof. Several people in the car at the time suffered injuries. No information has yet been provided as to what exactly caused the car to wind up upside down. Other New Jersey accidents that result in personal injury are often litigated in court when surviving victims seek compensation for damages against negligent drivers. An experienced personal injury attorney can help a recovering victim navigate the civil justice system.
