Car and truck accidents at intersections in South Jersey happen frequently. Below are 2 common types of accidents that happen at intersections.

At-Fault Driver Runs a Red Light

Driver A is driving his truck on Route 73 in Marlton, New Jersey and runs a red light at an intersection. He drives through the intersection and causes a multi-vehicle accident involving 2 other vehicles. He t-bones driver B’s car, which is pushed over into the adjacent lane. Driver B’s car then violently collides with driver C’s car in the adjacent lane.

Left-Hand Turn Intersection Accident

Driver A is attempting to make a left turn at an intersection in Cherry Hill, NJ. Driver B is traveling on the same street as driver A, but from the opposite direction. As driver B approaches the intersection, driver A suddenly turns directly in front of driver B’s car and causes a serious collision.

Damages Recoverable After NJ Car & Truck Accidents at Intersections

In the above scenarios, the drivers who caused the motor vehicle accidents may be liable for the accidents. They may have been negligent because they were distracted, i.e., talking or texting on their phones while driving or simply not paying attention.

Car accident victims who are injured in intersection accidents in NJ have legal rights and may be able to recover financial compensation from the at-fault drivers, depending on the type of auto insurance coverage they have and the nature and extent of their injuries.

In general, insured injured drivers who have no limitation on lawsuit on their auto insurance policies may sue for economic damages, such as lost wages, as well as non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering. Injured drivers who have limitation on lawsuit or verbal threshold may not sue for pain and suffering unless their injuries fall under one of the exceptions provided by NJ law. For a discussion of when injured drivers with limitation on lawsuit or verbal threshold can sue for pain and suffering, see New Jersey Car Accidents & Verbal Threshold – Can Injured Car Accident Victims Recover Damages? (Part 1)

A party other than the at-fault driver may also be liable for the accident if the driver was drunk. For example, if prior to the accident, the at-fault drunk driver was at a bar for several hours where he was continuously being served alcohol despite the fact that he was visibly intoxicated, the bar may be liable. Therefore, a thorough investigation would need to be conducted to determine the bar’s liability.
