Personal injury: Fatal crash involves single car

A 24-year-old man recently lost his life in a New Jersey car crash, leaving his family members to grieve over his sudden loss. Meanwhile, another 24-year-old man suffered personal injury in the collision. The fatal accident occurred on a recent Wednesday evening and involved a single car.

At about 5:30 p.m., a man was driving his car along a roadway. However, the car reportedly left the road. Police said that is when the motor vehicle hit a tree.

The driver of the car ended up suffering minor injuries in the crash, but his passenger in the front seat passed away at the accident scene. Authorities said that they were still investigating crash. However, according to prosecutors, the driver was speeding when he ended up losing control of his car. The accident apparently occurred while the driver was attempting to turn right.

The surviving loved ones of the passenger who died in the crash have the option of filing a wrongful death claim against the driver, seeking the reimbursement of monetary damages. If New Jersey prosecutors end up charging the driver in connection with the crash, and if the driver is later convicted on the charge, then the deceased accident victim's loved ones may present the conviction in a related civil court proceeding with the goal of establishing liability in the crash. In accordance with the laws that govern personal injury claims, a successfully litigated case might result in monetary damages to cover the deceased victim's burial expenses and other losses resulting from this crash.
