BERGEN COUNTY JURY AWARDS UPHELD FOR TEEN INJURED IN AUTO ACCIDENT

A Bergen County jury's $4.1 million verdict in favor of a teenager who suffered permanent spinal cord damage in a motor vehicle accident has been upheld. The girl, who was 14 at the time of the accident-February 23, 2013- was traveling in the back seat of a car operated by her father when he ran a stop sign and crashed into another car. As a result, she suffers from chronic pain and has lost some of the strength and mobility in her back. She also has numbness and weakness because of trauma to her spinal cord.

UBER DRIVERS MAY HAVE INSURANCE RISKS

Ride-sharing has taken the nation by storm, with estimates that more than 200,000 people are earning their primary income, or supplementing other income, by working for such companies as Uber, Lyft and Sidecar, among others. It can seem like a pretty easy and relatively safe way to earn a few extra bucks, but individuals who turn their private motor vehicles into taxis should take the time to carefully read their auto insurance policies-they may be engaging in activity that voids the policy.

RECOVERING FOR MEDICAL EXPENSES AFTER A CAR ACCIDENT IN NEW JERSEY

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT DISTRACTED DRIVING

Most people think that distracted driving is limited to driving while texting, but it takes many other forms as well-putting a CD in the stereo, trying to break up a fight in the backseat, or simply watching the scenery, rather than the road. The bulk of accidents involving distracted drivers, though, involve the use of handheld devices. According to a U.S. Department of Transportation website-www.distraction.gov-nearly 700,000 drivers may be texting, talking or looking up something on a handheld device at any given moment.

MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENT RATE ON THE RISE--CHEAP GAS CONSIDERED A FACTOR

OFFICIALS FEAR DRAMATIC RISE IN MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENTS

Gas prices have dipped below $2.00 a gallon in many communities across the country, the lowest they have been in more than five years. Another statistic that has government officials worried, though-the last time gas prices were this cheap, there was also a dramatic increase in the number of motor vehicle accidents nationwide. Before the plummeting of gas prices in 2009, officials had seen more than four consecutive years of declining rates of death and injury in motor vehicle accidents. Throughout the time prices remained low (2008-2009), accident rates remained high. As soon as fuel prices went back up, accident rates dropped precipitously.
