A frontal collision between two minivans in South Amboy traveling on Route 35 killed both drivers and caused serious injuries to three passengers. One of the vehicles, a 2002 Nissan Quest, was heading the wrong way and collided with a 2011 Honda Odyssey minivan.
The drivers were pronounced dead at the accident scene. Passengers in the Odyssey were transported by helicopter to a local medical center for treatment. A third passenger received minor injuries. The son of the Nissan Quest driver said his father had received an award for Best Assistant Coach that night. The son stated that his father did not drink or smoke and that he “was not fatigued.”
Frontal collisions, sometimes called head-on collisions, frequently cause death and serious bodily injuries. Surviving family members have the right to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the negligent driver and his insurance company.
Family members of both drivers probably aren’t thinking about filing personal injury claims at the moment but they may have questions about the process involved. Garber Law represents injured victims in South Jersey and throughout the greater Philadelphia, PA metropolitan area. The firm has offices in Voorhees, New Jersey and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
It’s often challenging to answer “What’s next?” after a serious accident because injured people need immediate and possibly ongoing medical treatment. Injured passengers may still be receiving medical care for their injuries. They may miss work as part of the recovery process. Expenses relating to the passengers’ injuries might be piling up. Pain, suffering, and emotional trauma may be present after experiencing a serious motor vehicle collision.
The law in New Jersey allows injured victims to bring legal claims against negligent individuals for medical expenses, lost wages, and resulting pain and suffering.
