Negligent Drivers

When a car accident happens, there is often one party that is clearly at-fault. Negligence must be addressed when trying to prove that one party is at-fault for the car accident. When a driver is negligent, they are evading their duty to conduct themselves in a responsible manner while driving on public roadways. A responsible driver should take all proper precautions to operate their vehicle safely and obey traffic laws. Negligence While most drivers instinctively realize it is their duty[…] Read More

The Emotional Impact of a Car Accident

When people think about car accident injuries, they naturally focus on the physical damages. Broken bones, head trauma, whiplash, spinal cord damage, and other common motor vehicle accident injuries can keep people from working or leave them permanently impaired.

Even if a person has no physical injuries, the trauma of a car accident can be long-term or permanent. While[…] Read More

In the event of an emergency, the tailgating car cannot stop or maneuver quickly enough to avoid rear-ending the car in front of them. New Jersey state law mandates that drivers keep one car length for every 10 miles per hour of speed between their car and the next car. Therefore, someone tailgating another vehicle in New Jersey has very little defense if[…] Read More

Liability in T-bone Car Accidents

Most people are familiar with T-bone accidents, which occur when one vehicle crashes into the side of another. Also called side-impact or broadside collisions, the aftermath can result in significant injuries and damages. Common sites for these accidents include intersections and parking lots. T-bone crash injuries are often worse than in rear-end and head-on collisions, since a car’s side may have less protection than its front or back. Injured passengers can also be trapped inside if the doors are smashed,[…] Read More
