A recent Monday proved disastrous for seven New Jersey travelers. They were involved in a multi-vehicle crash that resulted in personal injury. Investigators say there were at least 12 vehicles involved in the collision. The good news is that all seven people who were transported to the hospital are expected to survive their injuries.
An 18-year-old woman gave an account of what she witnessed. She said she was driving along the highway when she saw a tractor-trailer strike a median and become airborne. The young woman said she had to swerve to try to avoid a collision.
The incident led to the massive crash that reportedly caused one person to become fully ejected from a vehicle. Investigators are still working to learn more about what or who may have caused the truck to hit the median before colliding with the 12 other vehicles. Investigations like this often take weeks or months to complete. Such incidents also often lead to criminal charges if there is evidence that suggests a truck operator was acting under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
New Jersey law allows recovering personal injury victims to seek justice in civil court if they learn that driver negligence was a causal factor in their collisions. This type of litigation often leads to court-awarded compensation. Post-litigation financial rewards can greatly benefit accident victims who have no other means to cover their medical expenses or other costs arising from the collisions that caused their injuries. Any man or woman with questions about the injury claims process may request a consultation with an experienced attorney.
