Three-car crash in New Jersey results in DWI charge

When individuals in New Jersey and elsewhere are traveling down the roadway, it is not a rare event to see an accident site. While it may be a simple fender bender more often than not, the reality is that car accidents can occur anywhere and at anytime. Additionally, these collisions could be severe, causing serious and even fatal injuries. There are many reasons why accidents occur and are often the result of negligence and recklessness, such as being distracted or intoxicated behind the wheel of a vehicle.

Helping people recover compensation after a car crash

Most days, New Jersey residents get into their motor vehicles without any thought about the potential dangers associated with operating that automobile. Not many people think about the possibility of getting into a car accident. However, no matter how much a person believes they will never get into a car crash, the reality is that anyone at any point could be involved in a car crash because one never knows when they will share the road with a negligent driver.

For those who must travel during rush hour, it is clear how many vehicles can fill up a roadway. This can be vastly different for motorists traveling during the evening and late night hours. The roads can seem sparse, providing a wide open space or motorists. However, motorists are not the only ones traveling on the roadways. Pedestrians and cyclists can share the road with motorists at any hour of the day or night. Because of this, it is also vital that drivers keep an eye out for them.

Proving negligence in a car accident

Drivers in New Jersey and elsewhere are likely to drive by an accident site on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. While some of these collisions are minor and only result in damage to property, others result in catastrophic damages and life threatening injuries. Although a car accident is the last thing we imagine being involved in, the reality is that a motor vehicle collision can happen at any time for any reason. Therefore, victims not only need help navigating the pain and suffering they might endure but also help understanding what legal recourses they might have.

Why do car accidents happen?

With the abundance of motor vehicles in the road, it is easy to see how they might bump into one another. But what really causes these crashes? We have heard the words negligence, recklessness, distracted and intoxicated thrown around when we hear about a car crash happened, but that doesn't explain exactly what happened.

When we get our driver's license, we are well informed that car accidents can happen for a wide variety of reasons. Depending on one's age, it was likely drunk driving was the most dangerous thing a motorist could do while behind the wheel. However, today distracted and fatigued driving are mainstream concerns. Despite the growing dangers on the roadways, drunk driving continues to cause many accidents each year.

Car accidents are unfortunate events that can be very unpredictable. Whether a dangerous condition leads to a car accident, a negligent driver collides with another vehicle or there is a chain reaction of multiple accidents, a car crash could involve several vehicles, severe damages, serious injuries and fatalities. Because car accident could transpire into a very complex event, it is important that the cause and liability associated with the crash is understood.

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.

Tip line designed to reduce frequency of texting and driving

With the inherent risk involved with texting and driving and other distracted behaviors behind the wheel in New Jersey, law enforcement and the state government are seeking ways to reduce the frequency of the practice. One new method that is being implemented is for tip lines to be used by motorists or other witnesses who see a driver texting or operating the vehicle while distracted. Since beginning this program, more than 600 people were sent warning letters.
