Do drivers need to drive to prevent accidents with children?

When your child goes out to play, you trust that drivers on the roads will be paying attention whenever children could be present. Speeding, driving drunk or doing things like texting or talking on the phone while driving can lead to accidents that leave your child scarred, disabled or worse. In those cases where your child is injured and you can prove negligence, your attorney can help you make a claim on behalf of your child.

What you can do if you're hit by an uninsured driver

When you get into an accident with another driver and that driver is at fault, you expect him or her to pay for the damages to your vehicle and for your medical bills and lost wages. You're suffering the impact of that driver's negligence, so there's no reason you should have to pay for that mistake financially as well.

Local and state governments: Sovereign immunity may not apply

One of the hardest entities to hold liable for injuries or damages to your property is the government. However, it is possible to file a premises liability claim against the government and to be compensated for losses.

Ways to stay safe as a pedestrian in New Jersey

To stay safe as a pedestrian, you should know the laws of the roads and how the state protects you. In New Jersey, motorists must stop and stay stopped if they see you or others in a crosswalk. They may not continue on until after you have passed through the entire crosswalk, making it safer for you to cross without the risk of a car bumping you or hitting you because of an impatient driver.

Drivers admit to distracted driving but still do not pay attention

Most drivers know that behaviors such as drunk driving, speeding, or using a cell phone while navigating the roadways are dangerous, yet many persist in doing them, mistakenly believing them to be socially acceptable. According to the New York Times, fatal car accidents are on the rise after years of decline, largely because of distracted driving. The number of road-related deaths in 2015 was 8 percent higher than the previous year. In surveys, Americans admitted not only to talking and texting but also using social media and even taking selfies behind the wheel.

Motorcyclist killed in rear-end collision

Motorcycle accidents can take place at any time and anywhere, but they're most commonly caused by dangerous drivers who simply aren't paying attention. Texting, driving while intoxicated, or driving recklessly are all potentially dangerous to motorcyclists and other drivers.
