motorcyclist and the driver of a car were seriously injured in two separate but related New Jersey crashes. According to The Cliffview Pilot, the accidents occurred on Route 46 across from the Teterboro Airport at Huyler Street and Hollister Road in Bergen County. Officials say the driver of a car veered across traffic striking another vehicle and a New Jersey Transit bus. As vehicles on both sides of traffic came to a sudden stop, a motorcyclist crashed into the back of another vehicle. In addition to the serious injuries suffered by the motorcyclist and the driver who veered into traffic, a number of other victims sustained minor injuries. The New Jersey auto accident attorneys at Lependorf & Silverstein have learned that everyone is expected to survive.
Some of the most devastating New Jersey car accidents involve drivers who veer into oncoming traffic. When this occurs, it must be determined if driver negligence was a contributing factor. Under N.J.S.A. 39:4-86: “The driver of a vehicle shall not drive to the left side of the center line of a highway in overtaking and passing another vehicle proceeding in the same direction unless the left side is clearly visible and free of oncoming traffic for a sufficient distance ahead to permit the overtaking and passing to be made in safety.”
Victims of injury accidents can pursue compensation for their losses by filing a personal injury claim against the at-fault party. In such cases, compensation may be available for their medical bills, lost wages, suffering, and other related damages. Unfortunately, it is common for insurance companies to deny valid claims and for injury victims to struggle with substantial medical bills.
