Unexpected car accidents can have serious outcomes

Injuries can change a person's life in ways that most people do not expect. While pain is often the first repercussion that pops into people's heads, injuries can also lead to high medical bills, lost wages due to being unable to work, loss of abilities and other hardships. As a result, when injuries result from car accidents, it is common for injured parties to seek compensation.

Snow squalls significantly increase risk for car accidents

Amid the recent heavy snowfalls in New Jersey's center parts, safety authorities cautioned drivers about the hazards posed by snow squalls. According to the National Weather Service, snow squalls are short-lived, intense bursts of exceptionally heavy snowfalls. When they occur, the risk of car accidents is significantly higher.

Car accidents: In New Jersey texting and DUI equally serious

Losing a loved one in a crash is naturally a traumatic experience for the surviving family members. The fact that many car accidents were preventable makes it even tougher for families to work through. It is only natural to seek justice after such a loss; however, nothing can bring that person back. The family of a New Jersey pedestrian who died after being struck by a texting driver may find no comfort in the fact that the driver might spend 10 years in prison after she was convicted in a New Jersey criminal court.

Car accidents: Many people question the safety of e-scooters

Several cities in New Jersey have given ride-share companies permission to operate e-scooters before making final decisions about allowing programs to run permanently. The safety of this mode of transport is once again questioned after the death of a 15-year-old e-scooter rider. Car accidents involving scooters have become a significant concern.

Risks of car accidents increase after end of Daylight Saving Time

Safety authorities say for a while after the clocks are turned back when Daylight Savings Time ends, the number of drowsy driving incidents on the nation's roads, including New Jersey, increases each year. Although many people enjoy that extra hour of sleep, others will find themselves driving to work in the dark. It takes most people some time to adjust to the changes, and car accidents are reportedly more prevalent during this time.

Car accidents: Teen driver dead, 2 injured in crash with big rig

Losing a teenage child is naturally a traumatic experience for parents, especially when they do not know exactly how it happened. This might be the case in the death of a 17-year-old New Jersey girl, who died in one of those car accidents that need reconstruction to determine how it happened. Authorities report that the deadly crash occurred shortly before 9:40 a.m. on a recent Friday.

New Jersey drivers to see big changes to DWI laws

State lawmakers in New Jersey recognize drunk driving as a serious statewide issue. They wish to reduce the risk to the public from intoxicated drivers while at the same time not placing an unreasonable burden on individuals trying to hold down jobs and take care of their families. To that end, the governor recently signed a bill into law that will expand the use of ignition interlock devices in addition to revising other drunk driving penalties. 

When are defective car parts recalled?

Understandably, you likely expect your car to get you anywhere you need to go in New Jersey safely and without hiccups. Unfortunately, manufacturing errors do occur, and some can be dangerous. If your vehicle has a safety-related defect, you might even be dealing with an auto recall.

Dealing with whiplash after a rear-end car crash

When another New Jersey driver hits your vehicle from behind, you may experience whiplash, which occurs when something causes your neck to move back and forth forcefully, causing damage to neck tendons and muscles. At Lieberman, Ryan & Forrest, L.L.C., we understand that rear-end collisions are a common cause of whiplash, and we have helped many clients who experienced whiplash and other injuries due to another driver’s negligence pursue appropriate recourse following a car crash.

FMCSA and DOT at odds over trucker drive time limits

Most people in New Jersey have seen, read or heard reports about tragic accidents that have happened in which tractor-trailers have collided with regular-sized passenger vehicles, motorcycles, pedestrians or bicyclists. It is not hard to understand how people in other vehicles, on bikes or on foot face serious disadvantages when these events happen. This is one of the reasons that the government has developed a series of rules designed to improve trucker and public safety.
