Three injured in car accident

A car accident in Brick, New Jersey on May 24 left three people injured, including one pedestrian. The accident occurred around 4:55 pm at the intersection of Brick Boulevard and Cedar Bridge Avenue. A fourth person involved in the accident was not injured.

The pedestrian accident happened when a 2006 Nissan Altima driven by a 23-year-old woman and carrying a 57-year-old woman crossed into the path of a 1988 Chevrolet 1500 pick-up truck driven by a 33-year-old man. Both cars were travelling southbound on Brick Boulevard. After the cars collided, the Nissan spun and hit a 58-year-old man who was standing on the southwest corner of the intersection with his bike.

Both the driver and the passenger of the Nissan were transported to Jersey Shore University Medical Center where they were treated for head and neck injuries. The pedestrian was taken to Ocean Medical Center with a head injury. He was later moved to Jersey Shore University Medical Center. The driver of the truck was not injured.

The Brick Township Police Department is still investigating the cause of the crash. A police spokesperson didn't say whether charges would be filed. It also was not known whether the injured pedestrian planned to file a claim for his injuries, medical bills and pain and suffering. Pedestrians who are struck by vehicles can suffer serious injury, disability or even death and may be entitled to financial compensation. An experienced attorney could evaluate the details of an accident and advocate on behalf of the pedestrian to obtain full and fair compensation. If the accident was fatal, an attorney could work with the pedestrian's family to obtain damages to cover their pain and suffering and the loss of their deceased loved one's earnings.
