New Jersey Workplace Accidents

The New Jersey personal injury attorneys at Breslin and Breslin are saddened to hear this week that a 45-year-old North Bergen man was killed after a car crashed into a construction site on the Garden State Parkway where he was working. According to reports, a Ford Explorer traveling northbound on the Parkway crossed from the middle lane to the right lane where the construction site was assembled, crashing into workers, machinery and a parked vehicle. A second worker is being treated for moderate injuries at the Bayshore Community Hospital. As of this morning, the accident is still under investigation.

New Jersey "Dog Bite" Laws

In light of the recent debate over the safety of pitbulls, the New Jersey personal injury lawyers at Breslin and Breslin would like to remind all NJ dog owners of the state's "dog bite" laws. New Jersey, like the majority of states, is a statutory strict liability state. This means that the dog owner is legally liable for all the damages inflicted upon a dog bite victim, even if the dog had never shown a propensity for attacking humans.

School Bus Safety

A Camden County Superior Court jury this week awarded $5 million to a teenage girl who was struck by a drunk driver after her school bus let her off at a dangerous and unapproved stop. According to court documents, plaintiff's attorneys argued that the school bus driver ordered the Gloucester County woman to exit the bus about one-third of a mile from her home and walk down a busy, high speed road with no sidewalks, instead of dropping her at the designated stop in front of her home. The driver did that an alleged 40 times throughout the school year prior to accident in an effort to shorten his bus route.
