Factors that contribute to semitruck rollover crashes

With your vehicle's low center of gravity, a rollover crash on the roadways of New Jersey is probably one of the least of your worries. However, if you are next to a tractor-trailer, maybe it is not your own vehicle you should be worried about. We at Escandon, Fernicola, Anderson & Covelli, LLP, are aware of many issues that could cause that 18-wheeler to roll.

Should I tell my friends to stop texting and driving?

We've all experienced the uncomfortable situation of riding in a friend's car, when he or she whips out a smartphone and starts texting while driving. Considering that scientific studies have shown texting while driving to be almost as dangerous as intoxicated driving, it's natural to be afraid in these circumstances.

Driver awareness may prevent motorcycle collisions

The many beautiful roads that traverse throughout New Jersey create a prime route for motorcyclists looking for a beautiful and memorable ride. Additionally, riding a motorcycle is a valuable form of transportation for many people that provides convenience, cost-effectiveness and flexibility. However, motorcyclists face an enhanced risk of injury and death because of the vulnerability they are exposed to on a bike. Unfortunately, if motorists fail to pay attention and stay vigilant, they may not notice a motorcycle and this oversight could result in fatal consequences. 

The dangers of parking lots

Whether driving around a parking lot looking for a good spot, walking in or out of the store or backing up to leave, people in New Jersey need to be fully aware of the dangers around them. According to the National Safety Council, about 500 people die in parking lots and garages across the U.S. each year, and thousands more are injured. 

Losing a loved one in a car accident increases your risk of PTSD

When you were hit by the driver who was texting, the worst part was not the damage to yourself but the loss of your loved one in the passenger seat. Our legal team at Escandon, Fernicola, Anderson & Covelli in New Jersey understands that this trauma can cause mental and emotional harm that magnify the pain and suffering of the collision.
