Driving on the freeway gives many drivers anxiety behind the wheel. After all, with several lanes of traffic whizzing by on either side, often at speeds greater than 70 mph, it can make any driver a little uneasy. One wrong move made by another driver can lead to a car accident in the blink of an eye. It seems a recent car accident on New Jersey's I-280 involved at least a dozen vehicles.
In those vehicles, seven individuals were hospitalized for car accident injuries. Luckily, it appears everyone will survive the ordeal. While authorities are still investigating the crash, it appears to have started by a flatbed tractor trailer truck hauling bags of cement. Video footage of the car accident scene appears to show many vehicles in a state of disarray, with one vehicle flipped on its hood.
Pending the findings of the investigation of the motor vehicle accident, the authorities will likely determine who was at fault or what sequence of events caused the car accident injuries. These findings can help those who have suffered losses due to car accident injury to pursue compensation based on personal injury law and negligence. These damages can make a huge difference in compensating the victims for medical expenses and potential lost wages, among other expenses.
