Four teenagers were injured in a New Jersey car accident that occurred as they were traveling to Gloucester Catholic High School. According to The Gloucester County Times, the injury accident occurred on Almonesson Road in Gloucester Township. Officials say the vehicle hit a curb and crashed into a utility pole. The four occupants, who were between the ages of 15 and 17, were extricated from the wrecked car and transported to a Camden hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
New Jersey car crash injury victims who were passengers in a crash often worry that they will hurt their friends if they attempt to pursue financial compensation for their suffering. It is important that injured victims and their families remember that the insurance policy of the at-fault driver will cover most of the damages suffered. In cases where the at-fault driver does not have adequate insurance, compensation may be available through the uninsured/underinsured motorist clause of the victim’s own insurance policy.
A personal injury claim is a civil lawsuit that allows injured victims to pursue financial compensation for the damages they have suffered in a crash. Losses that may be included in a personal injury claim include hospital expenses, lost wages, therapy fees, and physical suffering. Anyone with questions regarding how to seek fair and full compensation following an injury accident would be well advised to speak with a skilled personal injury attorney.
