A rear-end collision on Route 22 in Salem Township, has left one man dead. The victim’s wife and three-year-old daughter were also injured in the crash.

Police said a pick-up truck struck the victim’s vehicle while they were stopped at a stop light.  The vehicle was then thrown into the median.   

The victim died due to his extensive injuries.  Police said the victim’s wife was lucky to be alive after the crash.  Their daughter suffered a broken bone.  Both are expected to recover.

 The at-fault driver declined medical treatment at the scene of the accident. It is uncertain as to why the truck failed to stop and struck the victim’s vehicle.  The investigation is ongoing.   

Recovering compensation after an accident.

If a loved one was killed in an accident, it is important to contact a personal injury attorney right away to review your family’s rights. You may be able to file a civil wrongful death claim.

Pursuing a claim after losing a loved one will never fill the void left by a loved one’s passing away. It is not a matter of profiting for the family left behind, but rather recovering.  The recovery of damages can alleviate the unexpected funeral costs and expenses accrued when a loved one passes.
