Can I end a partnership and keep the business?

It's a tale as old as time, or at least as old as modern business law. Individuals form a business partnership with great intentions, but somewhere along the way things get complicated and ultimately untenable for at least one partner.

Many partners see the end of the partnership as the de facto end of the business as well, but it doesn't have to be. With careful planning and perseverance, partnerships can fairly dissolve while the underlying business remains intact.

Can I appeal an insurance claim denial?

After a car accident, the appropriate thing to do is to make sure everyone involved gets any medical treatment they need in the moment, gather whatever information you can about the accident, and file a claim with the relevant insurance provider or providers.

For many individuals, this is more or less the end of the story, but for others the process may become a burden rather than a safety net. Insurance providers are companies first and foremost, and are therefore keenly interested in saving money where they can justify it. Far too often, they achieve these savings by under-compensating a claim, or in some cases, refusing to pay out for a claim at all.

Do you have delayed onset injuries from a car accident?

Car accidents happen all the time, and often we walk away from them believing that nothing more than a bumper or two suffered serious harm. However, in many cases, individuals who experience car accidents suffer delayed onset injuries that take days or weeks to cause pain or disorientation.

If you recently experienced a car accident and now have some pain developing, it is always wise to receive professional medical care to determine the cause of the pain and identify the causes of the pain.

Construction injuries deserve fair compensation

If you work in construction, you know that you face very serious dangers each and every day. Construction sites, even when they meet safety standards, contain many opportunities for serious injury to workers in all areas.

When a construction worksite injury occurs, workers' compensation insurance steps in to ensure that you receive medical treatment and compensation for your lost income.

When money doesn’t solve your contract dispute

In the course of doing business, there are many opportunities for contract disputes to arise, as they regularly do. In many cases, when a claim is deemed valid, a court or out-of-court settlement will lay out a plan for fair monetary compensation to settle the matter.

But, what if your contract dispute can't resolve with money changing hands or paying for a similar service or product? This is sometimes the case if a contract involves a specific piece of property changing ownership, or if you entered into a very specific contract where substitutes will not suffice.

New Jersey Transit busses pose serious threat to pedestrians

Here in New Jersey, many people of all walks of life depend on NJ Transit busses to get them where they need to go. They also depend on these same busses to not endanger their lives, either as passengers or as pedestrians.

Unfortunately, not everyone who depends on NJ Transit for these simple needs is so lucky. Just a few weeks ago, a NJ Transit bus struck and seriously injured a man while he was crossing Route 22.

Dissolving a partnership can be messy business

Business partnerships are a tricky affair, not only because they make a business venture so innately personal, but also because they are one of the few business relationships that can legally exist without a written agreement.

Unfortunately, many partnerships hit the end of the road sooner or later, which can make for immense frustration for partners, especially if there is a disagreement about the terms of dissolution. For many partners, the difficulties of business create personal tensions that are make objectivity hard to maintain.

Wrong-way driver causes accident on turnpike

Imagine driving on the New Jersey Turnpike when a car suddenly appears in your lane, coming straight for you. This is exactly what happened to drivers on March 19. At approximately 9:30 p.m., officers made their way to the northbound lanes of the turnpike near Elizabeth to locate a driver that was driving in the wrong direction.

Once the police arrived on the scene, they found an accident had occurred. At least two people had to go to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The state police later charged the wrong-way driver with drunken driving.

As a pedestrian, you have rights, too

Imagine entering a crosswalk while with the right-of-way, but the car coming toward you fails to stop. The damages of such a collision can be severe depending on the speed of the car. Simply because the car is larger, does not mean the driver can ignore your rights as a pedestrian. Whether you are walking on the sidewalk or crossing the street, as long as you are obeying a reasonable duty of care, you have the right to be there.

Unfortunately, the National Highway Safety Associate (NHTSA) reports that, on average, almost 5,000 pedestrians lose their lives due to motor vehicle related accidents. Many of these accidents happen when people try to cross highways on foot.

Commercial construction workers: Be wary of accidents

As a commercial construction worker, you love the high-paced environment in which you work. Furthermore, you enjoy the fact that you're not sitting in an office all day long.

Unfortunately, the construction industry can be dangerous at times. Every year, people are injured in a variety of construction site accidents. Making matters even worse, this type of accident can also be fatal at times.
