Employees report to work every day in New Jersey. They arrive at work and expect to return home without being injured. Some jobs have more risk than others, but if appropriate safety precautions are exercised most injuries can be prevented. In the event that a workplace injury does occur, the possibility may exist for a workers' compensation claim.
The holiday season is here, and while the possibility of an car crash is an ever present danger, it seems to escalate during the holiday season. Drunk drivers, hit and run drivers and distracted drivers are all present on New Jersey roadways. A hit and run car accident that ended in the death of the person who was hit has resulted in charges against the driver.
Every day, people report to workplaces in New Jersey. People did just that at a Social Security office located in Egg Harbor. At about 10:30 one morning, their work day was interrupted by a car crash that sent a car crashing into the building and through a wall, ultimately landing inside the building.
Every day people go about their business in New Jersey doing such things as going to work, going to school or going to the market. These are all normal, every day activities and one does not necessarily expect anything out of the ordinary to happen. In a market near Jackson Township there was a completely unexpected truck accident.
It is widely accepted that people take a risk every time they get behind the wheel of a car. Traffic on area roads in New Jersey is ever increasing and with more traffic the chance of an accident increases. Drivers are taught to be defensive, to anticipate what another driver might do and to be ready for it. When the other driver is drunk, there may be no way to prepare for what might happen in a drunk driving accident.
