Motor vehicle accidents: 3 dead in New Jersey

Three people are tragically dead following a serious single-vehicle accident in the late evening of June 9th. Two other people involved in the crash are hospitalized, and New Jersey police are trying to determine the cause of the crash. As with many motor vehicle accidents, charges may yet be filed against the driver, who was among the survivors of the fatal crash. 

First steps to take before a premises liability claim

If you were injured on a premises, whether it was the home of a friend, a grocery store or an amusement park, the owner of the premises may be legally to blame for your injury. This means that if you make a personal injury claim against the premises in question, you may be able to gain back financial compensation for the damages caused in terms of medical bills and lost wages. You may also be able to gain additional compensation for the pain and suffering caused.

Criminal defense: Did police request a field sobriety test?

If a New Jersey police officer makes a traffic stop, there is no way to predict how events might unfold. Perhaps, the officer will merely issue a warning to the driver to slow down or to repair a brake light that is not functioning. If the officer asks the driver to step out of the vehicle and take a field sobriety test, more serious issues might be at hand, such as a suspicion that the driver is operating the vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs, in which case the driver may be in need of criminal defense assistance in the immediate future.
