One of the first steps in examining a tractor-trailer accident case in Ocean County, NJ is to review the police crash investigation report. Many times, auto accidents are the result of a rear-end impact, an improper left-hand turn or carelessly entering a traffic intersection. As a general rule, drivers that cause a rear-end impact to the vehicle in front of them or drivers making a left-hand turn that results in an impact are negligent. In addition, any driver that does not stop at an intersection with a stop sign or a red light is clearly negligent. Occasionally, there are cases where a passenger is injured in a two-car accident and both drivers are negligent. For these reasons, the police report is a very important document in any auto accident case to determine who was at fault.
Generally, the police report will also identify any aggravating circumstances involved in the auto accident. For example, the police report may identify whether any driver involved in an accident was under the influence of alcohol or whether the accident was a Hit and Run.
