One more New Jersey highway accident

February 16, 2012

A recent New Jersey highway accident along Route 9 delayed traffic even longer than usual as parts of the roadway were shutdown for more than 5-hours. A Dodge Charger and a Jeep Cherokee collided causing the jeep to leave the roadway and collide with a tree. A passenger in the jeep was unconscious and trapped inside of the vehicle until rescue workers arrived at the scene of the accident.

Though the accident occurred at two o’clock in the afternoon, northbound traffic was halted until seven o’clock in the evening. More importantly, the passenger of the jeep was taken by helicopter to the hospital while the driver and another passenger inside of the jeep were taken to the hospital.

Motor vehicle accidents such as this are so common that in a few days another story will replace it in the newspaper. The headline of the story will discuss traffic delays without emphasizing injures suffered. However, for those injured in the accident the consequences could last for a lifetime.

An unconscious victim of a crash might have suffered a concussion, memory loss, brain damage and headaches that could have lasting impact and prevent them from ever fully enjoying their lives or being productive upon their jobs. Likely anyone injured in such a crash will require hospitalization and medical treatment, and will often have to take long term medical leave from their place of employment.

Few individuals have the resources to afford such expense and wage loss. If they’ve been injured due to the negligence of another driver, they may want to contact an attorney experienced in personal injury that will advise the injured party concerning their options and put forth an effort to discover how the accident occurred.
