2019 was a deadly year for pedestrians in New Jersey. According to the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA), New Jersey ranked 9th in pedestrian fatalities from January to June of 2019. There were 79 fatalities in New Jersey in those six months. Many safety experts believe that the rising number of pedestrian deaths is due to the increase in distracted driving. Others, however, believe it is because many of New Jersey’s roads lack the infrastructure needed to protect pedestrians.
Car accidents are unexpected, and it’s easy to panic when you have been involved in one. Although no one can ever really be ready for a crash, you can familiarize yourself with the proper steps to take after a collision. Knowing what to do (and what not to do) after a New Jersey car accident can help you get through the first few minutes and days following an accident without compromising your legal rights.
The American Registry has honored attorney Daniel E. Rosner with the America’s Most Honored Lawyers 2020 award. Rosner Law Offices, P.C. is proud to announce this award on behalf of our founding partner. This award recognizes continuous professional recognition and is awarded to the top percent of lawyers in the country.
After a car accident, police will arrive at the scene and complete a report. This is true for both minor accidents and accidents which cause excessive damage or severe injury. A police report can include details about the incident, who it involved, injuries sustained, and any citations written as a result. Documenting this information in an official report can come in handy for many reasons. For example, if you are pursuing a personal injury claim for damages, it is very important to get a police report after your auto accident. Below, our New Jersey auto accident attorneys explain why it is important to get this report, how to request the report and how long it takes to obtain.
According to the Chicago Tribune, the problem with self-driving cars is that they do not drive themselves – or at least not yet. Presently, there are so-called self-driving cars on the highways that are being tested by Tesla and Uber. And while these cars have a number of features that allow them to “drive” without too much assistance from a human being, they still require a human in the driver’s seat who can take over in the event something goes wrong. Below, we discuss these safety issues, self-driving car accidents, and your legal options.
When you get a concussion, you essentially suffer a brain injury. Even though it is a mild traumatic brain injury, any injury to the brain is serious. Some concussions can lead to a lifetime of pain and suffering, as well as disability. In fact, up to 20 percent of concussion survivors will suffer from effects years after their initial injury. Swiftly recognizing the signs of a concussion is the key to receiving prompt medical treatment. This alone could save your life and prevent long-term complications. After a car accident, survivors may wonder if they have a concussion. If you notice any of these signs and symptoms, it is important to get help immediately.
Car accidents often result in serious injury. However, sometimes those injuries do not always appear quickly. In an accident, adrenaline surges through the body. This adrenaline surge can mask the symptoms of serious injury. As a result, accident survivors often believe that they escaped the crash unharmed. They may even go home feeling lucky to be uninjured. However, in the hours and days following the accident, they may suddenly enter emergency rooms with late appearing car accident injuries. These injuries are sometimes life-threatening if not identified and treated quickly.
Rosner Law Offices, P.C., is proud to announce that New Jersey personal injury attorney Daniel Rosner is one of The National Trial Lawyers Top 100. He received this prestigious honor and recognition for his formidable work litigating on behalf of personal injury clients throughout New Jersey.
What is the National Trial Lawyers Top 100?
The National Trial Lawyers Top 100 is an organization composed of highly regarded trial lawyers in every state. A select number of lawyers in the nation receive an invitation. These lawyers are selected only if they meet strict qualifications. The committee selects members based on a stringent review process which includes peer nominations, as well as third-party research.
The novel coronavirus spreads quickly, but may not be detectable for up to 2 weeks. Given these facts, COVID-19 is extremely difficult to trace in most cases. However, certain occupations entail more exposure to the coronavirus than others. If you contracted COVID-19 while at work, you may be eligible for workers’ comp benefits. Below, our attorneys discuss what you need to know about coronavirus and workers’ compensation in New Jersey.
After a work accident, you need money fast to pay for your expenses. For example, as medical bills pile up, you may find that you are unable to work and collect a paycheck. Suddenly, your family is struggling to make ends meet. Unfortunately, during this time, workers’ compensation may not cover all of your needs. In fact, most workers’ compensation benefits do not cover full wages or compensation for pain and suffering. Often, injured workers only get 70% of their paycheck each month while collecting workers’ compensation. However, filing a third-party claim can help you get the money you need after a serious work accident. Unfortunately, not everyone is qualified to file a third-party lawsuit. Do you qualify? Our attorneys are here to help you find out.
