Survival actions vs. wrongful death lawsuits

Losing a loved one in Ocean County is never an easy thing to deal with, especially when you are involved in the management and administration of their affairs. Many in your same situation have come to us here at Silvi, Fedele & Honschke Attorneys at Law, L.L.C. questioning how to handle any unresolved legal issues that their families and friends left them (even those that were related to their deaths). If you also have the same question, then you might think that a wrongful death lawsuit is the right course of action to take. Yet that depends on the unique circumstances of your case. 

What are cognitive deficits?

Oftentimes, a traumatic brain injury will leave one with serious physical impairments that require continuous monitoring and treatment. In such cases, the need for financial assistance to help cover the expenses associated with such care is apparent (as such care may be necessary for the remainder of the victim's life). Thus, if your family member or friend is able to emerge from their TBI without any physical issues, you may feel as though they (and you, as their loved one) dodged a bullet. Yet that may not always be the case. 

Watch out for work-vehicle accidents during the holidays

Workplace injuries can actually increase during the holiday season for a variety of reasons. Especially for employees who drive vehicles as part of their job, icy weather conditions and increased drunk drivers on the roads during the holiday season can be additional hazards that may lead to injuries on the job.

Persistent headaches after a car crash

The physical toll of a motor vehicle accident can be devastating for victims and their friends and family members. Not only do many people suffer broken bones, deep cuts and other injuries that are immediately recognizable after a collision, but some may suffer in ways that do not become evident until later on. For example, someone may hit their head in a crash but appear to be perfectly normal at the accident scene. Weeks or months later, they may begin to notice that they are struggling with persistent headaches.

Drunk drivers continue to claim lives

Despite widespread public awareness campaigns about the dangers of drunk driving, many people in New Jersey continue to make the negligent and risky choice to get behind the wheel of a vehicle after they have consumed alcohol. With the holiday season in full swing, a multitude of parties and other gatherings will be happening in the coming weeks that will likely see a significant number of people driving after drinking.

How can I deal with grief over the holidays?

The holidays can be stressful enough on their own. When you’re still reeling from the sudden loss of a loved one, the holiday season can seem almost impossible to deal with. In this case, finding a way to cope with your grief is of the utmost importance. Psychology Today offers the following tips, which will allow you to navigate your grief throughout the holidays.
