For some people, an inflated sense of confidence and invincibility seems to be a side effect of consuming alcohol. When combined with driving, this drunken overconfidence could easily lead to serious car accidents. New Jersey State Police believe this may have been the case in a recent crash on Route 80 East.
Emergency responders put their lives on the line every day to help the people in the New Jersey communities where they live. Seeing emergency vehicles such as ambulances and fire trucks at the scenes of car accidents is normal, and the injured are grateful to them for their help. Every so often, however, emergency personnel never arrive at a scene to which they are called because they were involved in an accident along the way.
It may be easy for New Jersey residents to forget that doctors and surgeons can end up needing medical care, just like everyone else. When they do, they put their health, lives and livelihood into the hands of colleagues. Just as any other patient would, medical professionals trust that nothing will go wrong. Sometimes, however, that trust is misplaced, and a medical malpractice claim ensues.
Pedestrians are put at serious risk when drivers are not paying attention to the road. Understandably, it is not uncommon for pedestrians to suffer serious injury or worse when struck by a motor vehicle. In fact, car accidents like these can result in broken bones, head injuries and even death. In many cases, pedestrians crossing the road are struck by a vehicle driven by a person that is simply not paying attention.
