Head-on car accidents may have fatal outcomes

Two women's lives have sadly been cut short due to a car crash in New Jersey. The head-on car crash occurred on a recent Wednesday evening. Sometimes, these types of car accidents happen as a result of a driver's negligence, which is grounds for litigation in the Garden State.

The recent New Jersey accident took place at about 5:30 p.m. According to authorities, a 22-year-old woman driving a car along a street was trying to pass a fellow motorist. That is when she reportedly hit the other motorist head-on.

The 27-year-old woman who was driving the second car passed away at the accident scene. The first car's driver also suffered fatal injuries in the crash. Police reported that no other occupants were in either of the cars involved in the fatal collision.

The surviving loved ones of the deceased driver of the second car might choose to file a wrongful death claim against the first car's driver, seeking the reimbursement of financial damages. Even though the first driver ended up dying in the car accident as well, her estate may be sued. Likewise, any other person who had ownership interest in the car that she was driving at the time of the accident might be named in the wrongful death lawsuit.

Liability must be established in civil court before a court will adjudicate any claims for damages. If plaintiffs end up being successful in their claim, the court may award them damages to help them cover losses tied to these types of car accidents in New Jersey -- such as burial costs. Monetary damages might also help with covering support for any surviving dependents that the second car's deceased driver may have.
