Evaluating a brain injury

Head injuries can result from a variety of incidents, including motor vehicle accidents. Anyone in New Jersey who has a loved one that experiences a head injury will want to understand how these injuries are evaluated and what type of impact they may have on their family member's life and health. 

Who is liable after a mass shooting?

Unfortunately, mass shootings are becoming a regular occurrence in this country. When one occurs, the immediate concern is saving victims and stopping the shooter. However, as time goes by, victims and the families of victims begin to pick up the pieces and look for someone to pay for the damages they incurred. If a mass shooting were to happen in New Jersey and you were a victim, who would be responsible for paying your related expenses?

Detailing the dangers of eating while driving

Many take to Ocean County's roads every day with the understanding that the potential exists for them to encounter dangerous drivers. Most tend to classify "dangerous drivers" that those who drive while impaired or intoxicated, or people who choose to text or use their phones while driving. The stigma and potential penalties associated with such activities might deter many from doing them, thus seemingly diminishing the number of potentially dangerous drivers on the road. In reality, however, countless people engage in distracting activities that can cause them to become equally as dangerous those who text or drink while driving. 

Preventing motorcycle accidents, injuries and death

When it comes to driving or riding on the roads, one thing is certain – collisions waste time and money. They also kill and ruin lives. If you prefer riding a motorcycle to driving a car, you are not alone. Many bikers take to the streets each day, knowing how dangerous it is for them to do so. Those who end up colliding with other vehicles are not always fortunate enough to recover and resume their normal activities. 

Dispelling the myth of assumption of risk

While most in Ocean County might claim to understand workers' compensation benefits, that understanding is typically limited to the knowledge that said benefits help cover the expenses that arise from a work-related accident. Beyond that, details such as benefit limits, reporting requirements and qualifying criteria are likely a mystery to them. Speaking specifically about that final point, many may think that certain aspects about one's job may actually disqualify them from workers' compensation coverage. An example of this line of thinking may be people believing that certain jobs already present inherent dangers, and those who do them agree to assume those risks. 

Identifying signs of brain injury

When a New Jersey worker experiences a head injury of any sort, quick action is of vital importance. In order to diminish the chances of these injuries having a severe or permanent impact, head trauma of any sort should be identified and treated quickly.
