Elderly driver faces dozens of charges in bus crash

The bus driver involved in a 2018 crash that left a Paramus, New Jersey, teacher and student dead, has been indicted on more than three dozen counts.

The Morris County Prosecutor's Office filed two counts of reckless vehicular homicide, 16 counts of assault by auto as a disorderly person's offense and 25 counts of assault by auto against the driver, 78.

Who is responsible for payment in a drunk driving accident?

In many cases, car accidents are civil cases instead of criminal ones. That is the case for a standard crash, such as what happened on Route 22 on April 22nd, that ended up closing down several lanes of traffic. 

In the event of a drunk driving accident, the collision automatically becomes a criminal offense. The intoxicated party will go to jail, but the person on the receiving end of the crash still needs to receive compensation. The injured party should work with an experienced attorney to receive compensation in a civil suit even though a criminal case will likely go to court around the same time. 

Medics face special risks when they are on a shift

Paramedics face some serious risks while they are on the job. These come from a variety of factors, many of which can be prevented. It is imperative that all medics are trained to handle the daily stresses of the job. It is up to the company to ensure that these workers have the training they need to reduce the risks.

One of the most important things that they need to ensure everyone knows how to use body mechanics at work. This includes not trying to lift patients using an awkward position. Instead, they should square off the body and use the knees to lift instead of the back. This can help reduce the chance of back and similar injuries, including repetitive motion injuries.

Consistency and teamwork can benefit a parenting relationship

Your children are going to be impacted by your divorce even if you are splitting up on fairly good terms. Everything that they've known about their home life is changing. They will have to learn how to live between two homes, which isn't impossible, but will take a period of adjustment.

That's why it's so important for both parents to set up clear rules in their homes. Even though setting these boundaries can appear to be quite challenging, in actuality, it can be very beneficial to your children.

Jersey City pedestrian injured after alleged DWI driver hits him

How does a court determine pain and suffering?

When you sue for a personal injury, such as injuries from a car accident, you aim to receive compensation for monetary damages. You may have specific medical expenses and quotes for repairs to your vehicle.

However, other damages are not as easy to quantify. You have likely heard of people getting compensation for “pain and suffering.” While these are subjective terms, the amount sought in a lawsuit does not just come from the sky. It has to reflect some tangible harm you have experienced.

Living arrangements are a divorce consideration

Family law cases are sensitive matters because they have to do with the people who are closest to you. When the issue that you are facing is that your marriage is ending, you have to think carefully about various aspects of your life. One of these is who is going to move out of the marital home. This isn't always an easy question to answer, but you must come up with a solution because living together during the divorce isn't a good idea.

When you are thinking about what you are going to do, there are concerns that you need to consider. One of these is whether you can handle the rent or mortgage payment for the home. Don't think about only that payment, go a step beyond and think about the utilities and other bills associated with the dwelling. We don't want you to end up being unable to keep up with the expenses and have to deal with financial pressure on top of the divorce.

Getting full value from your injury claim

Being polite and agreeable may not be the best strategy when it comes to obtaining the competition you need for car crash injuries. The claims process can be frustrating and adversarial. Insurance companies know that people fear conflict and confrontation. So they will commonly make a relatively low offer up front, delivered in a friendly tone, to try to wash their hands of your case.

The insurance adjusters are paid well to further the interests of the insurance companies. Their job is to resolve cases for as little money as possible, without regard for the real value of your case or what your actual losses and hardships are. So in an injury claim, you need to pay attention to the material facts and not the emotional lure of taking the first settlement offer.

Catastrophic injuries demand compensation after a car wreck

The stress of being involved in a car accident is something that can dramatically change your life. When you are going through this type of situation, you have to think about what you need. One of these is likely going to be getting medical care. This is going to depend on what type of injuries you suffered, so you should ensure that you let the doctor who treats you know that you were in a crash.

Once you have a treatment plan for your injuries, your focus is probably going to shift to healing. This is going to be a long road if you have a catastrophic injury like one that involves the spinal cord or brain. Your entire future might change greatly because of the crash.
