Ceremony held to honor drunken driving accident victims

The organization New Jersey Remembers recently held a dinner to commemorate those killed by drunk drivers and to honor the law enforcement officials responsible for enforcing laws against drunk driving in Trenton. At the ceremony, family members of alcohol-related accident victims testified about the lives of those lost and how the accident had impacted them. Police officers related how the death of a partner due to drunk driving gave them an insight that they never had before into how the accident impacts a person. Speakers also related that the penalties were now more severe than they were at the time of the accident, and how this serves as a deterrent to drunk driving. The speakers also related how organizations such as Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) advocate for the victims and their families and work to spread awareness of the dangers of drunk driving. The ceremony itself was held to honor the police officers with the most DWI arrests by the Attorney General's Office.

Wrongful death suit filed in abortion clinic case

The family of a 41-year-old woman, who allegedly died in a Pennsylvania abortion clinic operated by a doctor charged with murdering seven infants that were born alive, has filed a wrongful death suit against the doctor. The suit alleges that the doctor contributed to the woman's wrongful death by giving her a lethal combination of drugs and failing to adequately check on her condition.

New Jersey parents sue volunteer cops in wrongful death suit

The parents of a 31-year old Garfield, New Jersey man who was killed in a crash while being chased by a pair of volunteer police officers recently filed a $30 million lawsuit against the city of Paterson, New Jersey and its police department. The wrongful death suit stems from an April, 2012 incident in which the man was allegedly chased by two auxiliary police officers as he rode his motorcycle through Paterson. The volunteer officers gave chase despite the fact that they did not have the authority to conduct traffic stops and were only allowed to direct traffic and control crowds.

Dentistry board pushes for malpractice charges against dentist

As many New Jersey residents are aware, a dentist's behavior in the United States recently has allegedly caused substantial harm to a number of his patients. Specifically, over 1,000 of this dentist's 7,000 patients in Tulsa, Oklahoma have tested positive for Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, and HIV. On top of potential criminal charges, the man could also be facing a number of civil suits alleging medical malpractice.

Due to increase, workers' compensation claims reviewed closely

A former supervisor at the Trenton Water Works, who also happens to be the half-brother of the city's mayor, may face a battle to obtain workers' compensation from two separate claims amounting to $5,000. The city's council has decided it wanted to look into his claims further before approving a settlement. The council may be particularly concerned in this instance of workers' compensation claims because the man is currently jailed for allegedly being involved in the misuse of city workers and resources.
