    Paying attention to traffic isn’t easy for any New Jersey driver who is bored, overworked or tired. Driver inattentiveness is prevalent among people who drive for a living.

    March 05, 2014

    When your car strikes another vehicle of the same size in a low speed collision, the damage is usually slight or at least confined to property.

  • Obvious negligence, no criminal charges in New Jersey bus crash

    December 13, 2013

    Criminal and civil cases may overlap in time and evidence, but the outcome of the same case in each court may turn out very differently. Criminal charges are not necessary for a civil case to proceed. The reverse — criminal charges without a civil case — is also possible. A New Jersey criminal investigation into […]

  • New Jersey bus, truck drivers were negligent but not criminal

    November 27, 2013

    An accident liability claim is not dependent on the filing of criminal charges.

    September 04, 2013

    When people pass by the scene of an accident on the highway, they always seem to take one of three options: They call 911 using their cell phone, they continue to drive believing that emergency responders are on their way or they pull over to the side of the road to render whatever assistance they […]
