Making a case for drowsy driving

While most in Monmouth are likely very confident in their own driving skills, it’s often the reckless actions of others that lead to car accidents. In some cases, evidence indicating recklessness is readily apparent. Oftentimes, however, making a case for negligence can be quite a challenge.

Many of the Lakewood residents who come to see us here at Escandon, Fernicola, Anderson, and Covelli are facing enormous medical expenses stemming from serious accidents. When those accidents are caused by a drunk driver, victims often question how far liability extends to other parties who may have been involved. While most may assume that responsibility begins and ends with the one who chose to drive while impaired, there are certain scenarios where those who helped him or her reach an intoxicated state may deemed to be liable, as well. We’ll examine those instances in this post.

How much does an average motorcycle accident cost?

If you happen to count yourself among Monmouth’s many motorcyclists, you no doubt enjoy the freedom your bike provides from the dull everyday monotony of a car. Unfortunately, along with that freedom comes the increased risk of injury or death you face should you ever be in a motorcycle accident. If you are involved in an accident, your first inclination may be to forgive and forget rather than worry about the hassle of pursuing compensation. Yet once you know what the average cost of a motorcycle accident is in America, you may think differently.

Examining EMS response times to car accidents

Those in Monmouth with a fear of flying have probably been told many times that one is much more likely to die in a car accident than in a plane crash. While most likely accept that logic, few may truly understand how true it really is. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there were 10.8 million auto accidents in the U.S. in 1990. From those accidents, over 69,000 people were killed. Averaged out over a 100,000 resident population, that equates to a fatality rate of 11 percent.
