Losing a loved one is tough on families, regardless of the situation. When families receive an out-of-blue phone call letting them know a loved one has been injured or killed in a car accident, shock joins grief, and it can be hard to move forward with immediate arrangements. In some cases, dependents and others are left not knowing how they may move forward with life, especially when it comes to finances.
One person is dead following a fatal car accident that occurred on July 10 in New Jersey. State police say the accident occurred on the Turnpike and that one person died as a result of injuries in the crash. The incident occurred sometime around 10:50 a.m.
As of July 10, State Police limited the amount of information they reported regarding they accident. It’s standard practice for authorities not to name or identify victims of such an accident prior the family being informed. Perhaps the only thing worse than receiving a call from authorities with such news would be seeing the news first on television.
As of July 10, the accident was still under investigation, say state police. Investigators had not released additional information, such as the number of vehicles involved in the incident. The western spur of the Turnpike did remain closed and authorities were routing traffic to the eastern spur.
Families who are going through the shock of such a loss should know there are legal options that can help secure the future. In the event loss or damages is caused by an at-fault or negligent driver, a personal injury claim may help families secure the funds needed for medical bills or other needs.
