Franklin Township, NJ (October 7, 2023) – Several people were transported to area hospitals following an accident that took place in Franklin Township on Thursday morning, October 5.
Just before 7:00 a.m., the police and firefighters in Gloucester County responded to the scene of an accident that occurred on Stanton Avenue.
According to reports, a van was traveling south on the roadway. As it entered the intersection of Coles Mull Road, it became involved in a collision with a dump truck. The force of impact caused both vehicles to flip over and land in a field near the intersection.
A 31-year-old man and a 42-year-old man had to be extricated from the van. The two victims were flown by helicopter to a nearby hospital, where they were admitted in critical condition.
A 55-year-old woman was also injured in the crash. She was transported by ambulance for emergency care.
At this time, the incident is being investigated.
We hope the two men and the woman injured in this crash recover quickly.
Truck accidents take place far too often in the United States. In fact, more than 100,000 truck accidents occur each year on our roadways. Here in New Jersey, we see many people harmed as a result of accidents involving trucks and commercial vehicles.
After being hurt in a truck accident, many victims require extensive medical care. Having to go through weeks or even months of therapy and rehabilitation can be quite difficult. In order to help alleviate some of the financial burdens that truck crash victims face, it is important to seek legal guidance from a commercial vehicle accident lawyer right away.
After an accident, crash victims have the ability to file personal injury claims against the responsible party. In order to recover fair compensation, you must be able to prove who is liable for the accident. Unlike other types of vehicle accidents, there are several parties that can be held liable for truck accidents taking place.
One key factor in determining liability is driver error. If the truck driver was negligent or violated traffic laws leading up to the accident, they may be held responsible. This could include actions such as speeding, distracted driving, or driving under the influence.
However, it is important to note that liability does not always fall only on the driver. In some cases, the trucking company may also be held liable for an accident if they failed to properly train or supervise their drivers. Additionally, manufacturers of faulty vehicle parts or maintenance providers who neglected necessary repairs could also be liable.
To determine who is liable for your truck accident, it is crucial to seek guidance from a skilled legal team right away. Your attorney will be able to conduct an investigation into the crash and identify all of the parties liable so that you are able to maximize your financial recovery.
