Personal injury: Tractor trailer wreck injures 10

Police say that a tractor trailer driver is responsible for a multi-vehicle wreck that sent 10 people to the hospital, including the truck driver. The truck hit at least several smaller passenger vehicles when it ran a red light in New Jersey. No one died in the incident, although authorities initially reported as such. However, some of the victims may choose to pursue personal injury claims. 

A series of vehicles were stopped at a red light on Route 1 when, for whatever reason, the driver of the tractor trailer blew through the light. The truck directly hit eight different vehicles before it finally came to a stop, and police questioned the driver about the incident after he was taken to the hospital. It is not yet clear what he told officers. 

Of the victims who were injured, one suffered critical injuries and had to be pried from her vehicle with the Jaws of Life. The woman's two teenage daughters were also in the vehicle with her, but they suffered only minor injuries. Another victim was a 19-year-old man, who described watching the tractor trailer hit other cars before feeling the vehicle he was in being struck from behind. 

Police are still investigating the accident, but victims do not have to wait for its conclusion before they can seek compensation. Legal recourse from successfully pursued personal injury suits are often an integral part of recovery for victims in New Jersey. The resulting financial compensation can help victims address the financial costs of recovery, such as medical treatment and lost wages, and can also ease any lingering emotional trauma.
