How do "statutes of limitations" apply to wrongful death claims?

All civil lawsuits have what are known as "statutes of limitations." This is the time period in which a person can file a lawsuit. Once the time period is up, a person can no longer pursue a legal claim. This is true of personal injury claims, including wrongful death lawsuits. Each state has its own statute of limitations for wrongful death claims, so this post will only speak generally about this topic and does not provide legal advice. Those who want to know what the statute of limitations is for wrongful death claims in New Jersey will want to speak to a professional.

Are New Jersey bus drivers subject to hours-of-service rules?

People in New Jersey may already know that drivers of semi-trucks must follow federal regulations that dictate how long they can be on the road before having to take a rest break. These "hours of service" regulations are meant to prevent drowsy driving. They are especially important because the sheer size difference between a semi-truck and a standard automobile is so great that, if the trucker falls asleep behind the wheel and causes a commercial vehicle accident, it is the occupants of the other vehicle that can wind up seriously injured or even killed.

You were in a collision. Now, what?

You were driving along the New Jersey turnpike and another vehicle slammed into yours. The next few seconds might have passed in a seemingly slow-motion speed, as many accident victims later say they experienced this sensation. When your car came to a halt, you may have also felt dazed or confused, perhaps frightened and in pain, as well.

New Jersey Certified Civil Trial Attorney

Why Is This Important? Roughly 3% Of Attorneys Achieve This Status.

A certified civil trial attorney is a designation granted by the New Jersey Supreme Court to attorneys who can demonstrate sufficient levels of experience, education, knowledge, and skill in civil trial practice. The Supreme Court, through its Board on Attorney Certification, designates only those lawyers who apply for certification and who are able to meet the standards set by the Board and approved by the Court.
