A New Jersey driver was arrested, and he is waiting to learn the full extent of the charges against him. Authorities said further charges were pending the receipt of the results of toxicology tests to determine the level of his alleged impairment during an incident that occurred on a recent Wednesday. The crash happened similarly as many other drunk driving accidents in which impaired drivers cannot maintain lane control.
This time of the year typically sees bikers in New Jersey out on the roads, enjoying the summer. Sadly, not all motorists keep a lookout for motorcyclists. When motorcycle accidents involve automobiles, the consequences are often catastrophic. Lives are sometimes lost in these crashes, and those who survive frequently suffer life-changing injuries.

In New Jersey and elsewhere, construction-related scaffolding accidents are fairly common. As this is a known issue, companies are supposed to make sure scaffolding structures are safe for their employees to use by following the building guidelines set by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Unfortunately, this does not always happen, and accidents occur. When they do, injured employees may file workers' compensation claims in order to have their medical care and certain financial losses covered.
