Fatal car accident could lead to 3 separate personal injury cases

Four teenagers were recently driving in the early hours in New Jersey. The driver was apparently negotiating a curve on I-95 when he lost control of the car and caused a tragic car accident. The car spun around, hit a curb and eventually slid into a tractor-trailer that was parked alongside the interstate. It was not immediately clear why the semi was parked where it was.

All three passengers were killed. There were two women in the backseat of the car. One of them was completely ejected from the car while the other was partially ejected. Both women were pronounced deceased at the scene. The passenger in the front seat, a man, was extricated from the vehicle and transferred to a local hospital for treatment, but he passed away shortly thereafter.

The driver reportedly fled the scene on foot, though he was apprehended after a short search. He has since been admitted to a hospital for treatment of his injuries as well. That notwithstanding, he has also been charged with DUI, leaving the scene of an accident and vehicular homicide. Authorities have indicated that more charges may be forthcoming, though it was not immediately clear what those might be.

Any victim of a car accident may have the right to file a personal injury claim under New Jersey law. In a case of a fatal accident like this one, the victims' surviving family members may have the right to file a wrongful death suit. In such cases, financial restitution can help cover burial costs and final expenses. Additional consideration may be granted for pain and suffering and loss of companionship.
