Dangers of fatigue and driving addressed through technology

The 2014 New Jersey accident involving a retail semi truck and comedian Tracy Morgan has brought the issue of fatigue on the roads to the forefront, especially where large commercial vehicles are involved. While truck drivers are regulated in terms of driving hours and rest hours, it is difficult to force such a person to sleep during their non-driving hours. In this case, the truck driver may have dozed as he entered a construction zone and failed to slow down. He had not slept for more than a full day prior to the wreck.

Lawsuit filed by estate in death of Bobbi Brown

As New Jersey residents may be aware, a wrongful death lawsuit has been filed by the estate representing Bobbi Brown, daughter of Whitney Houston, against Nick Gordon, the boyfriend she was living with at the time of her death.

Opioid painkillers such as Oxycontin and Vicodin are among the prescription medications most commonly abused, and many workers recovering from an injury suffered while on the job are prescribed these highly addictive drugs. The issue was investigated by the National Safety Council, which found that these painkillers account for more than a quarter of workers' compensation drug costs.
