New Jersey crash resulted in personal injury to 9 travelers

Driving in New Jersey can be quite dangerous. One never knows if there's a distracted or reckless driver nearby. Sudden, erratic maneuvers can cause serious collisions that result in personal injury and, in worst cases, death.

A crash occurred on  a recent Saturday at approximately 11:30 a.m. on the Garden State Parkway. Officials say a sport utility vehicle had been traveling in the southbound lane moments before the collision took place. For some reason, the SUV careened out of its lane, over a median and into the northbound lane.

The vehicle struck another car. The sudden impact of the collision caused debris to fly, and some of it struck a third vehicle. First responders and rescue workers surely had their work cut out for them that day, as nine people suffered injuries in the accident. Sadly, six of the victims were children. Thankfully, there were no fatalities in the collision, and the injuries that occurred were not life-threatening.

When a New Jersey driver veers out of his or her lane and causes personal injury to another person or people, he or she may be held legally accountable for negligence. If a recovering victim files an injury claim in a civil court, he or she must present evidence to convince the court that negligence occurred and was a direct cause of his or her injuries. Because proving such a case can be quite challenging for the average person, it pays to hire an experienced personal injury attorney to litigate on one's behalf.
