A 34-year-old driver was injured in a car accident recently that involved an SUV rollover at Bridgeton Pike and Elk Road in Elk Township, according to a news report in The Gloucester County Times. The driver was reportedly traveling west in a 2006 Ford Explorer when it collided with a 2002 Ford Taurus. The driver of the SUV became trapped inside the vehicle when it overturned after the collision. Officials are in the process of determining who was at fault for the New Jersey SUV rollover accident.
Typically, intersection accidents in New Jersey involve a driver failing to obey traffic safety laws, such as violating New Jersey Statute 39:4-120.9 by failing to stop at a red light or stop sign, which can result in a serious injury accident. To determine who was at fault, authorities may investigate the scene of the crash, interview the drivers involved, and even seek eyewitness accounts of the accident.
Even in cases where the authorities choose not to cite the at-fault driver, compensation may still be available to the injured victims. If the at-fault motorist’s insurance refuses to offer an adequate settlement, the injured victim may pursue compensation through civil litigation. Compensation should be available for losses such as medical expenses, time away from work, pain and suffering, and emotional distress.
