When you think of a car accident it is typical to think of a vehicle crashing into another vehicle while on the road. And while an intersection, a heavy traffic situation or merge is a typical scene to place the accident at, there are actually many incidents that take place outside of that setting.
This was recently showcased at a bookstore in New Jersey when an SUV crashed through the storefront, injuring a bookstore employee. The vehicle came through the storefront in the afternoon, right in the register section where the clerks were working. The accident broke two glass windows and the awning above them was left hanging above the crash site. The bookstore employee sustained an injury to her lower body, officials said. Meanwhile, the driver of the vehicle was transported to a local hospital for evaluation.
Car Accidents and Injuries Can Happen Anytime
While the aforementioned story might seem like a freak accident, it happens more often than you think. The worst part is that the employee injured in this type of situation never thought they would say they were hit by a car while inside their place of work. Luckily, in this particular situation, no one was killed and the liability is clear-cut. The employee injured in the incident and the driver could have each suffered much more catastrophic injuries and both should be seeking legal counsel in regard to the incident.
The only question that remains is: does it fall under the category of a car accident, personal injury or workplace-related injury?
