Fatal Truck Accidents in New Jersey
Motor vehicle accidents in New Jersey leave tens of thousands of people injured every year. More than 500 victims who are injured in these accidents end up passing away due to their injuries. A fair share of these accidents occurs during the night and early-morning hours when drivers have difficulties seeing others sharing the road. Accidents involving semi-trucks result in fatal injuries at an increased rate. When drivers engage in reckless activities while operating their vehicles, speed, or drive impaired, they are more likely to be involved in a serious accident that claims their life or the lives of others involved. These incidents leave families distressed, especially in cases where they are forced to deal with the tragic loss of a loved one due to the negligence of others. In some cases, families can contact a wrongful death attorney in New Jersey to protect their legal rights.
