How dangerous is power-line work?

Power and cable lines are not things that many New Jersey residents think about unless the services they deliver are down. Unless they are in your home, you probably do not think about the workers who install and repair those lines either, although there are several thousand in the state. But these essential workers have a dangerous job.

Lawsuit filed after assisted living patient was over-medicated

Most in Ocean County may associate wrongful death lawsuits with cases were a person's negligence may have contributed to the death of another, but not to the point of warranting criminal charges. This essentially implies that this particular legal recourse option is simply another way of punishing someone for their culpability in a death, with the indirect implication being that such action is not needed when said someone is facing criminal charges. Yet often, a wrongful death lawsuit's purpose is to help the families of victims in affording the expenses that accompany their losses. For this reason, one might see a civil action filed in conjunction with an ongoing criminal case. 

Does Workers' Comp pay death benefits?

When someone you love dies due to the fault of another, it may seem monstrous at first to think in terms of compensation for that loss, especially if that loss occurs in your immediate family. Shock and grief are overpowering emotions that can blot out everything else. Unfortunately, New Jersey has a two-year statute of limitations to consider when filing a wrongful death lawsuit, which may sound like a long time at first, but really is not in the legal field. As you juggle your personal life to absorb the impact of loss—including the very real financial loss— there are many legal steps that need to be taken as well.

Why estate planning is not just for rich people

When it comes to the topic of estate planning, many people dismiss the idea without even having any information about it. The word "estate" often conjures up ideas of vast sums of wealth and assets, and people who do not have a high net worth think that estate planning is not for them.

Dental malpractice can be deadly

New Jersey residents, like other news followers, have likely heard the horror stories of doctors removing the wrong organ, amputating the wrong limb, or leaving surgical tools inside of patients. You may not realize that dentists make errors, too, and some of them can be deadly, especially those that involve infections after tooth extractions, oral surgery and other procedures.

Airbag recall biggest in U.S. history

Ocean County drivers must realize the risks of the road, which are often increased by other drivers who are inexperienced or careless. Texting, speeding and DUI drivers endanger thousands of lives every year, and so do defective products. Add bad products to dangerous driving conditions and the risk potential only increases.
