Navigating the process of workers' compensation

Countless Americans across the country work hard every single day so that they can support themselves and the ones they love. While there may be certain dangers associated with a job, no one goes into work on any given day expecting to be injured. Unfortunately, injuries in the workplace do happen and can severely impact one's ability to continue work. Thankfully, however, there are safety nets put in place that help injured workers continue supporting their loved ones. In such tragic situations, workers' compensation can be a major silver lining.

Rise in car crashes believed to be due to distracted drivers

The number of auto accidents in New Jersey and across the U.S. combined with their aftermath of injuries and fatalities has led to significant research into how and why they happen, so the numbers can be reduced. Recent research has found that there was a rise in fatalities due to a car crash and it is believed that this is because of the increase in distracted drivers who are using cell phones. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has found there was an increase of 10.4 percent in traffic fatalities in the first half of 2016 versus the same time period in 2015.

Holding reckless drivers accountable in Camden County

Getting into an automobile accident is something that can range from a complicated hassle to a life-altering or even life-ending tragedy. Unfortunately, even minor car accidents can spur long-term health problems and immediate money woes. Yet another negative aspect of a car accident is dealing with the other driver, particularly if that other party was at fault and won't accept responsibility. While getting in a wreck is sometimes unavoidable due to the actions of other drivers, dealing with such drivers doesn't have to be another headache.

Safe bicycle operation may not prevent all accidents

New Jersey has a reputation for being crowded, industrious and its residents always on the go. As a result, it's not surprising that many car accidents occur in the Garden State every year, including numerous tragic collisions between cars and bicycles. Especially in the summertime when the weather is more amenable to riding a bicycle, both drivers and cyclists need to stay safe and be aware of each other's rights to use the road.

Are drowsy drivers really that dangerous?

Summertime means many things to many people, but for plenty of New Jersey residents it may mean it's time for a road trip. With the season's longer daylight hours drivers can avoid driving after sundown in many instances. Still, whether one is driving in broad daylight or in the middle of the night, drowsy drivers can pose a serious danger to everyone else on the road.

Route 55 in New Jersey: Five deaths so far this year

Residents of the Camden area may have driven along Route 55, a thoroughfare that is increasingly home to numerous tragedies. Earlier this May, a deadly early-morning crash involving multiple vehicles closed the southbound lanes on the highway in the vicinity of Route 42. So far this year, five people, including this most recent victim, have lost their lives to car accidents on this road. For those who have been hurt or suffered serious injuries in New Jersey car accidents, a local personal injury attorney can offer key legal advice.

Vision-related safety concerns with older drivers in New Jersey

In today's society, demographics are changing, and there are countless Americans surviving into old age, both here in New Jersey and across the country. With this aging population comes safety concerns regarding older drivers with whom many of us share the road every day. Unfortunately, car accidents can be caused by a variety of factors but it's not unusual to hear of one -- or to be involved in one -- caused by deficiencies in an aging driver, particularly that person's ability to see and notice what's going on around them.
