New Jersey car accident that injured 15 blamed on improper turn

Some might say that car accidents are like snowflakes; no two are exactly alike. Weather, road conditions, driver attentiveness and the number of vehicles and people involved can all affect how a crash happens and the extent of the injuries. But no matter what the details are, almost all car accidents create stress and confusion for everyone involved. And if the accident resulted in injuries or damage to vehicles, those affected will want to know immediately who will cover the cost of medical and auto repair bills.

Supreme Court to rule on Medicaid, birth injury awards, part 1

There are few more devastating experiences parents can have than dealing with a debilitating birth injury caused by a doctor's mistakes.
