One fatality in Bernards, New Jersey car collision

Auto accidents in Newark and Essex County, New Jersey, have claimed many lives throughout the years. Some of the drivers and passengers involved walked away with injuries that altered their once normal lives. A car accident can be caused by a number of different factors including drunk driving, distracted driving and failure to comply with traffic rules and regulations.

Recently in Bernards, New Jersey, two cars were involved in a head-on collision. The incident happened on Liberty Corner and Martinsville Road. Emergency responders quickly arrived at the scene near the Pingry School on Liberty Corner and Martinsville Road where one driver was killed and other passengers were trapped inside the vehicles.

Although the cause of this particular accident is still unknown, similar accidents are often caused by speeding. A negligent driver going over the speed limit can easily cause a tragic accident. Fatal car accidents like this one happen across the state of New Jersey due to negligent or distracted drivers. Following an accident, victims' family members may find themselves in a state of shock and struggle to accept the sudden loss of a loved one.

Victims of auto accidents should be aware that they may be entitled to compensation. Immediate family members of the fatal auto accidents may file a wrongful death lawsuit against the presumed driver-at-fault. Additionally, the injured party may file a personal injury claim. Compensation can be obtained through the insurance provider of the driver-at-fault.

If the driver-at-fault is uninsured, victims of the mishap may find themselves struggling with undue financial burdens that include medical expenses. Victims may find it helpful to seek advice from a legal professional when dealing with issues of this kind. The legal professional can help the victims to obtain compensation for pain and suffering, medical expenses and property damages such as car repairs.
