Elderly woman struck and killed outside New Jersey supermarket

Although many risks for New Jersey residents are on the roadways, collisions involving motor vehicles could also occur in parking lots. This not only places motorists at risks, but also pedestrians traveling to and from their vehicles in the parking lot.

According to recent reports, a New Jersey woman was struck by a vehicle outside of a supermarket. The accident happened during the morning hours while the 71-year-old woman was exiting a ShopRite. Emergency crews responded to the pedestrian accident, and the elderly woman was airlifted to the hospital where she later died from her severe injuries.

Reports indicated that the driver of the vehicle that struck the pedestrian remained at the scene of the crash and is cooperating with law enforcement. An investigation is still ongoing and authorities are asking for any eyewitnesses of the crash to come forward and help with the investigation. Once completed, law enforcement officials should be able to understand the cause and liability of the crash.

The death of a loved one is a difficult event to experience for anyone. No matter the cause or the age of a loved one, a sudden accident that takes the life of a loved one away can be emotional and overwhelming. It is important that surviving loved ones understand their rights and options. A wrongful death claim could help address the losses and damages caused by the accident. It could help offset financial losses, such as medical bills, funeral costs, lost wages and other damages suffered by the surviving family members.
