North Brunswick crash leaves 1 in critical condition

When a serious car or truck accident occurs, it quickly impacts the lives of those involved. Whether the accident results in injuries or death, it affects the victims, their families and witnesses.

Accidents are expensive, costing thousands for patients to receive care and more for vehicles to be repaired. If property is damaged, the costs of replacing or repairing it can be extensive.

2 victims die in hit-and-run accident

When you're involved in a car accident, the decent thing to do, and the legal requirement, is to stay at the scene. You need to stay at the scene and assist anyone who is injured if possible. You should exchange information and await police and emergency services.

When a person doesn't stay at the scene, that person can be accused of a hit-and-run and charged. Hit-and-run accidents put lives in danger. If no one else saw that accident, there's a chance that the victims may not receive the help they need.

If Jack fell down and broke his crown, is the hill owner liable?

Most adults who grew up in New Jersey or other regions of the United States are familiar with the popular children's rhyme telling of a boy who tumbled down a hill and suffered a bump on his head. Although it may be a fun and entertaining way to teach children basic poetry skills, anyone who has ever slipped or fallen in a public venue or on another person's private property knows how anything but amusing it can be.

Imagine if that little childhood story ended with Jack filing a lawsuit against the property owner after determining he or she was negligent for leaving construction debris lying in the middle of the path knowing Jack would be walking there that day. Sounds silly, perhaps; yet, in real life, such situations often occur and may not only result in severe injuries but lead to financial problems and other complicated matters in the weeks and months that follow an accident.

2 injured in devastating motorcycle accident

Riding a motorcycle can be a thrilling event, and you may enjoy heading out during brisk days in New Jersey. You know that no matter how careful you are, though, people do make mistakes and may put your life at risk. If a driver doesn't see you coming and hits you, that person is responsible for the damage he or she causes, even if it was accidental.

A March 30 report discussed a recent collision in Galloway that left two motorcyclists seriously injured. According to the news, the crash happened at around 12:15 p.m. A 37-year-old driver had been heading east on Route 30, and the motorcyclist and his passenger, 28 and 34, respectively, were traveling west. The 37-year-old driver turned left to exit the highway and turn onto Cologne Avenue. In doing so, he cut off the motorcyclist's path and caused an accident.

Here's what you should do after you're in a crash

After a crash, there are several things you need to do. You'll want to file an insurance claim against the other driver to start with. You can file a claim in a number of ways, from filing it online to calling the insurance company directly. Some companies now even have mobile apps that help you keep track of your claim.

All people involved in accidents have to provide some basic information to the insurance company. For example, you may need to provide the date and time of the accident, your car's VIN or license plate number, your driver's license number and other important information.

Discrimination and workers' compensation: What you need to know

You were doing your job when your coworker made a mistake that nearly cost you your life. You suffered serious injuries, and you needed to go to the hospital immediately. You knew you'd be covered by workers' compensation, and you were. However, your boss seems to begrudge you over the claim. Is that fair? No. Is it legal? Perhaps not, depending on how far your employer takes his dissatisfaction.

Can you be discriminated against for filing a workers' compensation complaint?

Why do motorcyclists get into accidents?

You love heading out on your motorcycle, because it feels like you're closer to nature. There's little better than the adrenaline of the speed you travel on a highway or through a mountain pass. Even though it's an enjoyable moment for you now, there are risks to riding a motorcycle.

Motorcyclists face additional risks when they're on the roads. They're 26 times more likely to die in a crash than those who are in passenger vehicles, for instance. They are also five times more likely to be injured in a crash than those in larger vehicles.

The risks associated with providing care to others

Health care workers are some of the most important and most undervalued employees. Choosing to work as a doctor, nurse or other type of care provider means committing to long hours and high-stress situations, all in order to provide care and healing to others. Workers in these environments, particularly hospital employees, often face higher risks of injury or illness than those in other industries.

Pedestrian accidents on the rise due to various factors

Data reviewing pedestrian accidents in 2015 has showed a major surge in injuries compared to 2014. According to the data, pedestrian deaths rose by around 10 percent in that year.

What makes pedestrian deaths rise? One reason is because of a better economy. A better economy means people have more money to spend, and that means more cars are on the road. Gas prices dropped, making it more affordable to travel. On top of that, more people are on the roads than in the past.

What are the traffic rules in a parking lot?

Parking lot accidents often don't get reported because they tend not to cause much damage and rarely result in injuries. However, there are times when cars are damaged beyond repair, pedestrians are hit and injured or passengers or drivers feel the sting of an impact.

Who's to blame in a parking lot accident? That can sometimes be a difficult question to answer. Fortunately, there is a relatively straightforward way to know who's at fault.
