All motorists in New Jersey must drive with due care, but this is especially true for those driving semi-trucks. This is because, when it comes to truck accidents, a standard 2,000-pound automobile is simply no match for an 80,000-pound fully loaded semi-truck. And, unfortunately, these types of accidents seem to be becoming more common.
There is something about riding a motorcycle that draws many people to travel via two wheels instead of four. Whether it be the freedom of not being trapped in a car or just having the wind hitting your face, the popularity of motorcycles continues to grow. Unfortunately, riding a motorcycle does not afford you the same protections a car or truck can provide when it comes to safety. In addition, a motorcycle navigating the roads with other vehicles can often be deadly.
Sometimes it is easy to take our good health for granted. However, accidents happen every day in New Jersey that could lead to serious injuries such as spinal cord injuries. Whether it is sustained in a car crash, falling on a slippery floor or due to a sporting accident, a spinal cord injury can affect a person's health and well-being for the rest of their life. According to data from the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center, a person with a spinal cord injury can expect to incur a million dollars or more in expenses over the course of their lifetime.
