NEW JERSEY'S STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS ON PERSONAL INJURY

When you have a legal claim based on someone else's wrongful conduct, whether it's the failure to perform according to the terms of a contract, or a lawsuit for injuries sustained in an accident, you must file your claim within a specific period of time or it will be barred. There are a number of reasons for this rule, known as the statute of limitations. It helps ensure that evidence doesn't get lost and that memories don't fade. It also ensures that a person doesn't live for a long period of time with a potential claim hanging over his or her head.

NEW JERSEY CONSIDERING LAW TO BAN TEXTING AND WALKING

A New Jersey assemblywoman has introduced legislation that would make it illegal to send and receive text messages or to otherwise use a handheld device while in a crosswalk or walking along a public street.

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.

LIABILITIES IN INTOXICATION ACCIDENTS

Drunk and impaired drivers can be held liable for any injuries and deaths they cause. In cases where a bar, restaurant, liquor store or party host serves alcohol to a visibly intoxicated person, who later causes an injury or fatal accident, that person or establishment can also be held liable under New Jersey's dram shop law. Here, it's important to thoroughly reconstruct the events that happened prior to a drunk driving accident in order to establish a timeline of when a drunk driver started drinking, how much he or she likely had, and the time frame involved. Reviewing bar tabs, credit card purchases, security camera footage (if available) and eyewitness testimony can shed considerable light on whether or not a drunk driver was visibly intoxicated when he or she was served alcohol.

MEDICAL MALPRACTICE RULING PROTECTS THE RIGHTS OF THE INJURED

The medical malpractice insurance carrier must still cover a doctor who lied on his policy application and who is now being sued. A New Jersey appeals court published this ruling regarding the case of DeMarco v. Stoddard.

NJ Court Reinstates Bristol - Myers Wrongful Death Suits

Two-dozen wrongful death suits against Bristol-Myers Squibb Company were recently revived after a New Jersey federal judge ruled that a more lenient federal statute of limitations law should be applied to the cases. The plaintiffs filed a lawsuit against the pharmaceutical giant, alleging the company failed to warn its neighbors about contaminated air and soil. However, the cases were dismissed in February  2013 after U.S. District Judge Freda L. Wolfson said the state law applied and under New Jersey's Wrongful Death Act the lawsuits must be filed within two years after the death occurs. In September, 2013, U.S. Magistrate Judge Douglas E. Alpert ruled that federal law preempts a state law and the lawsuits have been reinstated. The lawsuits are filed in the in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey under Dyshelle Harris v. Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. et al., case number 3:11-cv-06004.
