Saddle Brook auto-ped accident kills man

Many in Ocean County might assume that whenever a lawsuit is filed, the party filing it is claiming that the reason the reason for the action is that the defendant displayed malicious intent. Yet oftentimes that is not the case at all. Civil action may rarely be meant to be punitive; in fact, in many cases, it simply arises from the need of accident victims to seek compensation for the enormous expenses they are often made to face.

Your frustrations may not only be directed at the driver, but also to whomever gave him or her access to a vehicle in the first place.
