As a construction worker, you face dangers every day. If you work at night and on the roadways, dangerous and tired drivers are of particular concern. This case involved someone who rammed his vehicle through a construction zone; unfortunately, that left one worker injured and another dead.
Car accidents can lead to a lot of devastation, especially if a car plows through a populated pedestrian area like in this story. A recent crash in New Jersey killed a woman and two other people who were pedestrians at a local farmer's market. A 48-year-old man was driving the vehicle that police have reported caused the incident. He has been charged with vehicular homicide as well as for leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident that resulted in death.
Pedestrian accidents happen for a number of reasons, but when it's due to a driver not paying attention to the road in front of him, that's a cause for concern. This crash is a good example of how it's important for drivers to maintain a visual of pedestrians looking to cross the road. This driver didn't, and that led to a pedestrian accident.
In July of 2012, a Millville, New Jersey, police officer had been on the job for two weeks when he was killed in a car accident. The man responsible for the accident was allegedly drunk at the time of the crash.
While many premises liability lawsuits may revolve around things that happen within a building, it is important for people in New Jersey to understand exactly how the laws can pertain to anything that happens on the property in general. For example, they should know that falling tree limbs, which may not have been groomed properly, could bring them to premises liability lawsuits even if a person never sets foot in the structure that they own. They need to take care of the property as a whole.
