On Monday, February 12, 2018, a Honda Accord and a School Bus were in a terrible accident in Monroe Township, NJ. Thankfully, no children were on the bus at the time of the accident, however the collision did result in the death of the motorist in the Honda and the school bus driver was sent to the hospital.
According to CBS Philly, the accident occurred around 4PM near near Tuckahoe and Glassboro Roads in Gloucester County, and police were working on determining the cause of the wreck.
We are deeply saddened to hear of this tragic accident.
In most accidents, unless you were rear-ended while sitting at a red light, determining fault is difficult. Insurers know this and unfortunately, they use it against you. Did both drivers play a role? Was it the bus driver’s fault? What happened? What people need to be aware of in case like this is that establishing negligence is necessary in a personal injury or wrongful death case. Injured parties have a burden of proof and must show what a negligent party did to cause injury. If another driver caused an accident, an experienced New Jersey personal injury attorney will leave no stone unturned when discovering evidence in an accident case and will work to prove negligence such as distracted driving or failure to yield.
