Recently, a 31-year-old woman was seriously injured in a car crash after she was ejected from an overturned vehicle at West Church Street and Good Intent Road in Gloucester Township, according to a news report in The Gloucester County Times. For unknown reasons, the 41-year-old man driving the vehicle lost control and veered into oncoming traffic before driving off the roadway. The vehicle overturned and the female passenger was ejected.

Whenever a single-vehicle crash occurs, there are a number of circumstances that must be investigated. Was the motorist speeding? Did a second motorist cause the driver to veer out of control? Did a hazardous roadway condition contribute to the crash? Passengers who suffer serious injuries in a car accident in New Jersey often struggle with how to pursue financial compensation for the losses they have suffered for fear of hurting a friend or family member who was driving the vehicle at the time of the accident.
