Losing a loved one is never an easy thing to deal with. Unfortunately, fatal car crashes take the lives of hundreds of people right here in New Jersey every year. In many cases, fatal car crashes can be attributed to some type of negligent action. We see countless people lose their life as a result of drivers who are intoxicated by drugs or alcohol, distracted by their cell phones, or speeding. Unfortunately, any act of negligence can lead to a life-altering collision.
When vehicles catch on fire after crashes, the injuries that victims involved in the accidents are left with can be more severe.
