Pedestrians are also at risk from a DWI accident

As traffic on New Jersey roadways becomes more congested, it is not only other drivers who see an increase in risks. Pedestrians walking along roadways are also at an increased risk of being struck by passing vehicles. If a driver is drunk and strikes and injures or kills a pedestrian, he runs the risk of being charged with having caused a DWI accident.

Workers' compensation rules exist to protect workers

Risk of injury is inherent to many types of jobs, particularly in the construction and manufacturing fields in New Jersey and elsewhere. Workers' compensation exists to help cover expenses incurred by workplace injuries or death. An article in USA Today indicated that as many as two deaths per month and two dozen severe injuries occurred in New Jersey each month in 2018.

Failure to remain alert can cause a tragic car accident

Motorcycles are a popular means of communication for many people in New Jersey. They are a relatively economical and easy way to get around. They are also small and can be very hard to see, which means they are often involved in a tragic car accident. An accident involving a motorcycle happened on a recent Sunday evening.

Drunk driving accident less likely to occur under new law

Car accidents that involve alcohol frequently result in serious injury or death in New Jersey. These accidents are preventable in that if the impaired person does not drive, a death or serious injury that could result from a drunk driving accident could not happen. A new law recently passed takes a step toward making this a reality and, in some instances, reduces the amount of time that a person's license may be suspended.

Chances of a car accident increase on holiday weekends

Police chases can be dangerous in New Jersey. There are procedures that officers follow in an attempt to reduce dangers to other drivers. A car accident can still result from a high-speed car chase. One such accident resulted in a fatality on a recent morning.
