Three people were killed in a Freehold Township car accident, according to a news report in The Star-Ledger. The fatal New Jersey car crash occurred on West Main Street between Route 9 and Trotters Way. Police report that one of the vehicles crossed over a double yellow line and struck a second vehicle containing two occupants.
If a New Jersey car accident is determined to have been caused by the negligent operation of a vehicle by one or more drivers, injured victims and their families may seek compensation for their physical injuries and economic damages and losses. Generally, there is a two-year statute of limitations on personal injury claims in New Jersey. However, if the claims involve a public entity, municipality or the State, there are “notice of claim” requirements which need to be fulfilled much sooner. If you or a loved one were injured in a motor vehicle accident, it is, therefore, important to contact a New Jersey accident lawyer soon after the accident has occurred in order to have your legal rights protected. If the various Notice of Claim and Statutes of Limitations requirements are not met, the injured party and/or their families may not be able to obtain compensation for their damages and losses.
