On Saturday, April 21, 2018, a terrible accident occurred in Deptford, New Jersey. According to news reports, a Nissan Sentra hit a dump truck carrying asphalt when entering Route 42. The little Nissan’s driver escaped with no injuries, according to Somehow, the dump truck then tipped over. A Chevy Subruban SUV then crashed into the dump truck. Tragically, the driver and a passenger in the SUV died in the collision, and at least 3 others involved in the collision were seriously injured.

Our hearts go out to the injured and loved ones of the people involved in this tragic crash.

Insurance and multiple vehicle accidents

After any accident involving a serious injury or a death, unfortunately, insurers will usually attempt to shift blame away from themselves to save money. This comes as people are trying to recover or grieve for their loved ones.

This is especially true in accidents involving multiple vehicles or truck accidents. What started out as a minor property damage accident can escalate into a multiple fatality tragedy in a matter of seconds.

Additionally, if a trucking company was to blame, or partially at fault, matters become more complex quickly as truckers and trucking companies have sophisticated insurance companies who are prepared to fight claims.
