Wrongful deaths are devastating

All of us are expected to live a long, full life. There may be some inherent danger in walking outside, driving a car, getting medical treatment or using specific tools or products, but we do not expect to lose our lives doing those kinds of things. We live our lives without fear, and embrace the small risks as necessary.

The seriousness of pedestrian accidents

Believe it or not, every time we are motorists, we are also pedestrians at some point. This is because when a vehicle is parked, we become a pedestrian when we walk from our parked car to a final destination. Whether it is in a city, shopping district or a residential area, pedestrians are found on sidewalks, parking lots and the side of a street. Therefore, drivers in New Jersey should constantly be aware of their presence. The failure to do so could result in a serious or even fatal pedestrian accident.

A motorcycle-automobile crash can cause a serious injury

Fall is upon us, and many motorcyclists in New Jersey are looking forward to taking their motorcycles out for a scenic cruise. Even as we transition to the cooler months, motorists should always be on the lookout for motorcycles. These small vehicles can easily be overlooked and missed, resulting in a severe collision involving serious injuries.

Motorcyclist ejected and seriously injured in New Jersey crash

Although summer is coming to a close, many individuals in New Jersey and elsewhere are still enjoying the warm weather by still taking their motorcycles out for short and long distance rides. Motorcycles are enjoyable and efficient to ride; however, they tend to pose a variety of risks to those that travel on them. Due to their small size, other motorists frequently fail to notice them traveling nearby or traveling in oncoming traffic in an intersection. The failure to be attentive and uphold their duty to drive safely could result in a negligent driver causing a motorcycle crash.

When truckers are distracted

Nowadays, distracted driving gets considerable media attention. Much of this focuses on the dangers of using the phone and texting and driving behind the wheel. There are numerous other distractions that earn far less attention in the media, however, and they distract today’s commercial truckers as well as regular motorists.

Initial steps to take following medical malpractice

Going to the doctor, even for a routine visit, is not always easy. What if the doctor says you need to change your habits? What if you need to get blood tests? What if you need a shot? While there are some uneasy thoughts, they are relatively minor when compared to those going through the mind of a patient admitted to the hospital for a surgical procedure or medical treatment. Here, the medical care is more extensive, raising the duty of care by the medical professionals treating a patient. And when a doctor, surgeon, nurse or medical staff member in Newark fails to uphold their duty of care, this could result in serious harm to the patient's health, well-being and life.
