New Jersey woman dies after fender bender

A 21-year-old woman died as she waited by the side of the road after a fender bender in Monmouth County. The woman, who drove a Volkswagen Jetta, was in a small accident and stopped by the side of the road, according to the prosecutor's office. She and the other driver, a 49-year-old from Cherry Hill, were waiting between their two vehicles. A third vehicle rear-ended the Jetta in the second car accident, killing the woman at the scene. However, another report indicated that she was hit by the third vehicle, a Dodge Ram truck, as she left her car.

The man suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to a medical facility where he was listed in stable condition. It is unknown if the 46-year-old driver of the third vehicle suffered any injuries. Authorities, including the prosecutor's office Serious Crash Analysis Response Team, continue to look into the accident.

After a death or serious injury occurs in an accident, the victims might want to hold the responsible parties accountable. They could have numerous expenses related to the accident, such as time off work, emergency room bills, hospital bills, doctor visits, prescriptions, physical therapy and counseling and might want compensation for these costs.

A personal injury attorney might be able to review the circumstances surrounding the accident to determine if the drivers were negligent. The attorney might try to conduct their own investigation into the accident. They might discuss filing a lawsuit for wrongful death after the accident and make a recommendation regarding specific amounts. They could consider the total economic losses, pain and suffering and punitive sanctions.
