Those who cause drunk driving accidents often face other charges

Residents of New Jersey can attest that they spend a great deal of time in their cars. With all of that time spent driving, it seems that the occasional traffic accident is a given, if unfortunate, event of everyday life.

In our last post, we began looking at the types of benefits available through the New Jersey workers’ compensation system. As we have noted, injured workers are able to receive compensation not only for medical bills and temporary disability, but also ongoing compensation for permanent disability, whether partial or total.
