New Jersey emergency rooms are often filled with people who have been involved in motor vehicle accidents. When a collision results in serious or life-threatening personal injury, the emergency room process might merely be the first in a long line of medical visits. Depending on the situation, surgery might be necessary or repeated physical therapy sessions to help an accident victim achieve as full a recovery as possible.
New Jersey highways are often busy, dangerous places. During holiday weekends, there is often an increase in accidents, perhaps because there are simply more cars on the road or maybe because holidays also often mean there are more drunk drivers on the road, as well. A recent incident resulted in personal injury but police have yet to locate one of the drivers involved.
Medical treatment is expensive. Going to a hospital for even a minor issue can result in weeks or months of medical bills. In a more serious situation, especially if you suffer personal injury in a car accident or other unexpected incident, you might be completely unprepared to cover the costs of health care. New Jersey law allows recovering accident victims to seek monetary judgments if their injuries were caused by someone's negligence.
Driving in New Jersey can be quite dangerous. One never knows if there's a distracted or reckless driver nearby. Sudden, erratic maneuvers can cause serious collisions that result in personal injury and, in worst cases, death.
A recent Monday proved disastrous for seven New Jersey travelers. They were involved in a multi-vehicle crash that resulted in personal injury. Investigators say there were at least 12 vehicles involved in the collision. The good news is that all seven people who were transported to the hospital are expected to survive their injuries.
New Jersey roads can be dangerous, especially for pedestrians. Even if those traveling by foot adhere to crosswalk regulations and act with caution, there is no guarantee against personal injury if a negligent driver is nearby. A community is grieving the loss of a 12-year-old boy, and investigators are working hard to find answers to many questions about the accident that recently took his life.
When the topic is vehicle sustainability upon sudden impact in a collision, a Toyota would likely be no match for a tractor-trailer. Such massive rigs have been involved with smaller vehicles in many collisions in New Jersey and other states, often resulting in catastrophic or fatal personal injury. Sadly, the latter was the case in an incident that took place on a recent Tuesday.
A New Jersey community mourned the loss of a 35-year-old teacher who was involved in a hit-and-run pedestrian accident. The personal injury the victim suffered ultimately proved fatal when she died 11 days after the accident. The incident has led to an arrest and criminal charges against the man believed to have struck her as she was crossing a street.
New Jersey consumers spend millions of dollars every year on a variety of products in the marketplace. Many are at risk for personal injury because of hazardous products. Such hazards may be caused by manufacturing or design defects, insufficient product labeling or other issues.
When a New Jersey traveler pulls up to a gasoline pump, he or she has the right to reasonably expect that the transaction will occur in as safe a manner as possible. While every motorist and vehicle passenger, plus pedestrians, gas station workers, etc., do face a certain amount of risk for injury whenever they are driving, riding or working, they definitely do not expect that stopping for gas will end in a fatality. Tragically, that is exactly what happened to three people on a recent Tuesday.
