A woman was injured in a New Jersey car accident after two cars traveling in the same direction collided with one another. According to a news report in The Burlington County Times, the car crash occurred on Route 72 near Savoy Boulevard in Woodland. Officials say the woman may have been partially ejected from her vehicle. She was hospitalized with what appears to be non-life-threatening injuries. Another woman sustained minor injuries. The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
In such cases where two cars collide, there are several factors that must be analyzed. Did one of the drivers make an unsafe lane change? Was one of the motorists following too closely behind the other vehicle? Was either driver distracted or inattentive? Was speed a factor in the crash? The answers to these questions may affect who is liable for the accident and who is able to pursue financial compensation for their losses.
A personal injury claim is a civil lawsuit that New Jersey auto accident injury victims may file to pursue compensation for the losses they have suffered.
