Motorists share New Jersey streets not only with other vehicles but also with pedestrians. As in any situation where people need to share, respecting each other's rights is essential.

Countless New Jersey workers face the everyday risk of getting injured on the job. That is why workers' compensation was created, to help injured workers to pay for their medical expenses and compensate their lost wages following an accident.

Filing a workers' compensation claim also prevents workers from suing their employers following a workplace injury accident.

However, even the most defensive motorists may not be able to avoid accidents. This may happen because of an inattentive truck driver, speeding and negligent truck maintenance. These factors can be used to file a personal injury claim if the victim sustains serious injuries following the crash.
