1 family lost a loved one, 2 other victims injured in 1-car crash

Sadly, many New Jersey families know what it is like to receive a phone call or visit from police informing them that a family member died in an accident. Understandably, the news is often devastating. Every family who has lost a loved one due to the negligence of another person or persons deserves to know what happened.

Law enforcement agencies in New Jersey are required to follow certain procedures and protocols when making the determination to initiate and/or maintain a pursuit.

Pedestrians and passengers are often victims of auto accidents

Passengers in a motor vehicle are also in the same position, and are at the mercy of a driver to whom they entrusted their lives. Sadly, many drivers betray that trust and their duty to others on the road, which means that pedestrians and passengers are often the victims of auto accidents during which they have no control over their fates.
