Victims of car crashes on major freeways often suffer catastrophic injuries. When a car accident involves a car and a tractor-trailer, the risk of serious injuries is even greater. In many instances, crashes involving semis end up with fatalities. Whether suffering from injuries and mounting medical bills or the reality of losing someone they love, victims of car crashes in New Jersey need to know their legal options to seek compensation.
A two-car crash in Jefferson on Sept. 27 resulted in injuries to three people. One 21-year-old woman from East Hanover reportedly sustained serious injuries during the accident, although the injuries are not considered life-threatening. A father and daughter also received injuries in the car accident.
Car accidents happen. That is a reality in today's society, not only in the Somerville area, but throughout the nation. Sometimes they involve not another vehicle, but rather a pedestrian. Whatever the circumstances surrounding an auto accident involving a pedestrian, the failure to stop after the collision makes what is usually already a bad situation, even worse. Sadly, pedestrian hit-and-run accidents occur much more often than most realize.
Can you imagine a world without trucks? While many would likely welcome fewer vehicles on the road, few would probably want to live without the many goods their use makes conveniently available for us all. That said, all would probably be happy if the number of truck accidents on New Jersey roads would decrease.
Throughout the nation including the Somerville area, trucks play an important role. They transport goods from one point to another making it possible to conveniently have access to the items we depend on each day. With so many of these vehicles regularly on the road, it is inevitable that at some point they will be involved in an accident with another vehicle.
