A woman and a New Jersey State Trooper were recently injured in a three-car collision. According to a news report in The Republic, the car accident occurred on Route 46 near the Budd Lake firehouse in Mount Olive Township. The patrol car ended up off the roadway and the woman’s vehicle was crushed under the axle of a work truck. The trooper sustained a concussion in the accident and the woman suffered broken bone injuries. The cause of the collision is under investigation and it is not yet clear if anyone will be cited for the crash.
Any time there are more than two vehicles involved in an injury accident, there is the potential for a complicated claim process. In such cases, investigators will have to determine which driver was at-fault, if speed, distracted driving, or recklessness was a contributing factor, and if any of the motorists should be cited for the crash. In accidents involving negligence or wrongdoing, the at-fault motorist can be held liable for the injuries suffered.
In such cases, injured victims can seek compensation to cover medical bills, hospitalization, lost wages, the cost of physical therapy, and other related damages. In cases involving multiple drivers, there is an increased risk of claims being denied and insurance companies passing the blame. A skilled car accident attorney will protect the rights of the victim while ensuring that the negligent parties are held accountable.
