Medical malpractice can extend to dentists

There are many reasons for personal injury lawsuits to be filed. It doesn't matter if you live in New Jersey or any other area of the country.

Prosecutor seeks maximum penalty for DUI video confessor

MADD honors police officers for fighting DUI accidents

Recently, the organization Mothers Against Drunk Driving held an awards ceremony in Edison, New Jersey, where they honored police officers for their role in curbing incidents of drunk driving. The group gave certificates and pins to the police officers it felt did the most to stop alcohol-related accidents. Speakers at the event discussed family members lost to drunk-driving accidents and honored the officers for their efforts. MADD is also working to lower the legal blood-alcohol content limit from .08 to .05, a change recently advocated by the National Transportation Safety Board. The group also favors technology to prevent drivers from starting their cars if alcohol is detected on their breath.

Judge suspends sentence of elderly men for drunk driving

Recently, a judge in Westfield, New Jersey, suspended the sentences for two elderly men involved in a hit-and-run that left a 68-year-old hospice nurse dead. The alcohol-related accident allegedly occurred when the two men struck the woman while she tended to an injured pedestrian. The two men admitted to drinking before the accident at a local Knights of Columbus Hall. The victim had struck a pedestrian with her car shortly before the accident, and had gone out to help him when she was hit by the two men. The woman died at the hospital from her injuries from the accident. Both men stopped after the accident, but one left before police arrived and he was charged with hit and run.

Distracted New Jersey driver causes injuries to 8 others

Contaminated dog food in New Jersey leads to federal lawsuit

Every day Mt. Laurel residents shop for and buy products that, without proper oversight, could be potentially dangerous.
