Every day people go about their business in New Jersey doing such things as going to work, going to school or going to the market. These are all normal, every day activities and one does not necessarily expect anything out of the ordinary to happen. In a market near Jackson Township there was a completely unexpected truck accident.
The accident happened on Cedar Swamp Road. A tractor-trailer was traveling south when it crashed into a car headed north. The truck then crashed into Glory’s Market and came to a stop near the checkout aisle. The employee who was working at the register reportedly saw what was about to happen and yelled ‘run’ shortly before the impact of the crash. The cashier was seriously injured.
The cashier and a customer of the store were both buried under the rubble. Store employees and customers came to the aid of the injured and both were transported to an area hospital. The employee is reportedly in very serious condition and the customer is listed as critical. The drivers of both the truck and the car suffered minor injuries. The cause of the accident remains under investigation.
Serious and unexpected injuries in New Jersey take people by surprise, and in the shock and confusion that ensues one might not be sure of what steps to take to ensure that physical and property damages are appropriately addressed. Having a conversation with a personal injury attorney can be an important first step. A lawyer can review the facts of a truck accident and help to determine if a civil lawsuit against the party deemed responsible is a possible option. A successfully litigated claim can help with compensation for medical costs and other verifiable losses.
