Fatal New Jersey accident potential case of wrongful death

Because drivers can become completely comfortable behind the wheel, they may overlook the potential harm they can cause should their vehicle drift into oncoming traffic or strike the rear of another. While many drivers would never think to drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol, they may overlook the harm that certain distractions can cause. It is unclear what caused a recent fatal accident in New Jersey that could potentially result in a wrongful death lawsuit.

The accident happened one evening on a day in December. According to reports, a southbound car driven by a 35-year-old woman veered across the center line into oncoming traffic. As a result, the vehicle struck a vehicle headed north driven by a 61-year-old man.

The female driver suffered minor injuries and received treatment at the scene of the accident. The injuries suffered by the male were much more serious. Although rescue workers attempted to revive the man and transported him to the hospital, he ultimately passed away as a result of injuries suffered in the collision. Police do not believe that alcohol or drugs contributed to the crash.

Many families in New Jersey who lose a loved one unexpectedly are often left wondering how they will cope with the emotional and financial implications of their loss. If it can be proved that their loved one's death was caused by another's negligence, surviving family members may choose to file a wrongful death lawsuit. While a verdict in their favor will likely do little to lessen their sense of loss, a monetary award could help them fulfill their financial obligations, allowing them to focus on their emotional recovery rather than how they will pay their bills.
