Multi-vehicle accident kills couple driving to their wedding

State troopers in New Jersey witness a great many fatal traffic accidents in their careers, and most of them develop emotional shields to protect their sanity. Occasionally, however, the circumstances of a particular accident pierce this shield and haunt a trooper's memories for a long time. A motor vehicle accident on I-78 in Berks County had that effect on several troopers that were at the scene.

What is a wrongful death action in New Jersey?

According to multiple news reports, a woman and a child were killed in Chester, New Jersey, when a tractor-trailer smashed into an SUV driven by a third person. The accident is still being investigated by law enforcement officials, but it appears that the truck driver was at fault. If that proves to be the case, the injured SUV driver may have a claim for medical expenses, lost wages, and permanent injuries. But, what about the woman and the child who were killed?

Bar pays $1.5 million to settle wrongful death case

New Jersey law requires bars and other establishments that serve intoxicating beverages to assume liability if they serve someone who is obviously intoxicated and that person then becomes involved in a traffic accident. A bar in Belmar recently agreed to pay $1.5 million to the estate of a young woman who was killed in an motor vehicle accident caused by a person served by the bar.

New Jersey car accident statistics are sobering

The Association for Safe International Road Travel reports that more than 37,000 individuals nationwide lose their lives in motor vehicle crashes each year. Moreover, 2.35 million individuals suffer injuries due to auto accidents. While these statistics are certainly sobering, the statistics regarding motor vehicle accidents in New Jersey may be of greater concern to residents of the state.

Accident victims deserve compensation

Whether you are on your daily commute, running errands or taking a road trip, most drivers in New Jersey assume they will reach their destination safely. Unfortunately, this doesn't always happen. Every year thousands of individuals suffer injuries or lose their lives in car crashes caused by another driver's negligence.
