A tragic accident occurred back in April that resulted in the death of a 34-year-old male from Blackwood. Courier Post says Alex Ibbeken was struck by a box truck as it was backing up on the shoulder of the Black Horse Pike. After officials arrived, they transported Ibbeken to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead. Gloucester Township police did say that the driver of the box truck remained at the scene for questioning.
Although the box truck driver was not charged with any criminal offenses after the truck accident, officials were conducting an investigation that would later determine if any needed to be filed.

How much is my truck accident case worth?
A Camden County, NJ truck accident lawyer can assess your injuries/losses and determine what your case might be worth. It is worth noting that New Jersey follows a Comparative Negligence law which says that if you are partially responsible for the accident, your damages (i.e. money that serves as a form of relief) will be reduced by your percentage of fault. For example, if you had $20,000 in property damage and medical bills related to the injuries you suffered in the accident and your percentage of fault was determined to be 50%, you would only be entitled to $10,000.
In the event your percentage of fault is more than the other driver, then you are not entitled to collect compensation from the other driver’s insurer. Now, if you would like to have an attorney provide you with an estimate for what your case is worth, contact USAttorneys.com today.
