New Jersey highways can be dangerous. Navigating rush hour may feel more like playing Russian roulette than commuting to and from work. Accidents happen often on state roadways, the results of which are often disastrous. A multiple vehicle collision that recently occurred led to fatal personal injury.
It was a Monday afternoon, sometime near 3:30 p.m., when the collision occurred. There were reportedly several vehicles involved, one of which was a tractor-trailer. In addition to the massive truck, three other vehicles succumbed to the impact of the crash as well. One of the vehicles was a silver-colored van.
The driver of the van was undoubtedly unaware a few hours earlier that it would be the last time he’d ever get behind the wheel to go anywhere. Sadly, however, it was, in fact, his last trip as he was unable to survive the injuries he suffered in the collision. As is always the case following fatal car crashes, an official accident investigation was begun and remains ongoing at this time.
When family members learn of a New Jersey loved one’s fatal personal injury following a car accident, they often want answers to many questions, such as whom, if anyone, was at fault in the collision. If a particular motorist was negligent, an accident victim’s loved ones may experience intense feelings of anger and frustration, considering the fact that more cautious driving may have prevented their family member’s death. Such circumstances often lead to litigation when surviving family members ask experienced attorneys to help them seek recovery for their losses.
