Can you plan ahead to avoid distracted driving?

If you have to commute to your job each day in New Jersey, you have probably encountered times where the temptation to multitask while driving is quite appealing. You may even feel justified with your decision if the road around you is not busy or if you are confident in your ability to maintain attention on the road. However, distracted driving is deadly and even the simplest of tasks can create a major danger. Fortunately, there are proactive things you can do to lessen your temptation to drive distracted. 

Why should we all care about truck driver health?

It may be challenging for you to find the time to exercise, and eating right when you're so busy with work and life in New Jersey may seem next to impossible. For truckers who often work 14-hour days and eat every meal at a restaurant, the struggle may be even more difficult.

Please tell your friends to 'buckle up'

When you're driving friends or family in your car, and you notice that they're not using a seatbelt, politely ask them to please "buckle up." If you do so, and they comply, you might just save a life. If you do so, and they don't comply, at least you know that you did your best to help prevent a catastrophic injury or death in your vehicle.

Suggestions for planning an affordable funeral for your loved one

When you are faced with the unexpected death of a loved one in New Jersey, it can be overwhelming to begin sorting through emotions and planning a funeral. Because coordinating a funeral involves several important factors, chances are you want to spend time preparing so you can give your loved one the memorial he or she deserves. At Escandon, Fernicola, Anderson & Covelli, we have helped many grieving families as they navigate their way through the legalities following the death of their family member. 

Brain tissue injuries may develop slowly

Immediately after your car accident on the New Jersey highway, you may feel shaken up and disoriented. However, you are able to get out of your car, exchange information with the other driver and give your account of the event to the police officer who comes to make a report. We at Escandon, Fernicola, Anderson & Covelli, LLP, often advise people who have been in a collision to seek medical attention as their next step.
