Motorists: to yield or not to yield to pedestrians?


New Jersey maintains a set of traffic regulations that are designed to protect the safety of motorists and pedestrians. However, some rules are updated occasionally in order to promote safety. When laws are updated, despite being promoted by the state, some motorists remain blissfully unaware. Being aware of these changes is crucial for drivers and especially pedestrians, who can sustain serious injuries or even lose their lives in a pedestrian accident. So what does a New Jersey driver need to know when it comes to the state's updated laws about pedestrians?

Drivers should be aware of disturbing truck accident trends


In the busy and often congested roads and highways of New Jersey, a truck accident can have catastrophic results. Property can be damaged, serious injuries can occur and lives can be lost. Knowing the recent disturbing truck accident trends can help truck drivers avoid accidents. This information also can be beneficial to other motorists so they can travel safely on New Jersey roads.

Premises liability: holding the right people responsible


Property ownership has its own set of responsibilities that, when followed, should provide for the safety of the property owner and other property visitors as well. Some New Jersey property owners may forget this very real responsibility and blame the victim when an accident occurs leaving a visitor or resident injured. However, we are aware of these responsibilities and the laws regarding premises liability and we believe that the right people should be held responsible for any negligent acts.

Man responsible for fatal pedestrian accident faces charges


Pedestrians who are accident victims usually sustain serious injuries. Some even lose their lives. Ironically, pedestrians typically have the right of way and all a driver needs to do to prevent a pedestrian accident is to follow the law and yield to a pedestrian. However, some drivers either forget this law or intentionally break it. Regardless of whatever a driver's reason may be, it is still an act of negligence and the driver can be held criminally liable. This was apparent in a recent accident that happened just north of Newark, New Jersey.
