A driver was injured in a car accident recently that resulted in the vehicle overturning. According to a news report in The Star-Ledger, the accident occurred at the intersection of Hooper and Oak avenues in Toms River. The report does not specify if a second vehicle was involved or the cause of the crash. The victim was taken by helicopter to the Jersey Shore Medical Center in Neptune. An investigation into the New Jersey rollover accident is ongoing.
There are a number of traffic violations that are often linked to serious accidents. Drivers violating New Jersey Statute 39:4-50 by driving while intoxicated have a greater chance or running a red light or failing to yield the right-of-way. Drivers violating 39:4-125 by making an illegal U-turn can cause catastrophic car accidents by turning into oncoming traffic. Drivers who run a red light or stop sign at an intersection may be cited by the authorities for violating New Jersey Statute 39:4-120.9. Such violations can also result in car accidents that can cause victims to suffer catastrophic injuries or even death.
Negligent drivers may be held criminally and civilly liable for their actions. Victims of rollover accidents in New Jersey would be well-advised to seek the counsel of an experienced lawyer who will not only look into whether there were negligent drivers involved, but also whether a defective auto or defectively designed vehicle caused or contributed to the accident and/or injuries.
