New Jersey intersections, like many other crossroads throughout the country, are often busy, dangerous places. Most four-way intersections are secured with traffic lights or stop signs; however, that does not necessarily guarantee motorist or pedestrian safety. A recent Tuesday morning crash shows how suddenly and unexpectedly a serious collision can occur and result in personal injury, especially if a particular incident involves driver negligence.
A mother in New Jersey recently shared thoughts about her 23-year-old daughter who, along with two other young women, was killed in a motor vehicle accident. Here mom described her as someone who would have made a very good counselor because she had a knack for reading people. Hours before she suffered a fatal personal injury, the daughter joined two of her best friends from high school for a reunion before one of them deployed in the U.S. military. Two of them were apparently apparently estranged, and the night was meant to mend some fences between them.
New Jersey highways can be dangerous places. You likely agree, especially if you've ever been on one during rush hour. Many drivers are in a hurry and even impatient, a combination that is often a recipe for disaster. Many drivers do things they shouldn't while behind the wheel, which could place you at risk for personal injury.
A New Jersey community came together on a recent Saturday to support and comfort one another after hearing tragic news. It was not the first time friends, students and faculty had gathered to pray for a local family, whose 15-year-old son had suffered serious personal injury in a pedestrian collision. For the past week, he lied in a medically induced coma but has since succumbed to his injuries.
A New Jersey man, age 53, had served his community as a corrections officer for 23 years before his sudden, unexpected death on a recent Thursday. The former officer was on a motorcycle when a tractor-trailer collided with his vehicle. He suffered fatal personal injury, which has left his former colleagues and entire community reeling with grief.
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.
