Throughout the nation drivers are educated on the dangers of drinking before they get behind the wheels of their cars.

Drinking and driving is a common cause of vehicle accidents and annually many Americans lose their lives in crashes with drunk drivers.

Who is liable for a dog bite?

Dog bites can result in serious harm to New Jersey residents. When dogs attack, victims may be left with severe lacerations, disfigurement and other medical problems. Medical help should be sought by dog bite victims to ensure that their injuries have been properly assessed and treated.

Victims should not have to fight for their rights alone

A personal injury accident can leave a New Jersey resident with emotional, physical, and financial pain. While the extent to which victims of these incidents suffer losses may vary, individuals who suffer hardships as a result of other people's negligent, reckless, or intentional action can often sue for compensation.

What is a wrongful death?

The death of a loved one is always a difficult event for their surviving relatives. When old age claims a beloved leader in a family, their descendants may mourn them but remember the full life they lived. When a young person passes away from an illness, their loved ones may struggle to understand why their life was cut so short.

Know when negligence is the cause of a personal injury

New Jersey residents may be aware that not everyone uses the best judgment. Whether they are out on the roads, walking through their communities or shopping in their favorite stores, they may see others distracted by their cell phones or engaging in other behaviors that are dangerous to themselves and others. While it may not be possible for everyone to always be perfect in terms of their actions, when individuals make poor choices that lead to others suffering harm they may be held liable for their victims' losses.

Recognizing liability for slip and fall accidents

Slip and fall accidents are very common and sometimes, caused by the fault of the victims. For example, if a New Jersey resident accidently trips off of a sidewalk because they are engrossed in an article on their cellphone, it may be their fault that they are injured from their fall. However, slip and fall accidents also happen when property owners fail to provide others with safe and secure places to live, work and shop.

Dog bite injury may be a compensable personal injury claim

Though many New Jersey pet owners consider their dogs to be members of their families, dogs are animals and can be unpredictable. Even the gentlest dogs can act out when they feel threatened or under duress, and individuals who have injury-causing encounters with dogs may feel at a loss when it comes to getting help with their recoveries. Victims should know, though, that they have rights and the laws of the state protect their interests.

Distracted driving remains top concern on the road
