Medical Malpractice 

The Department of Health created a reporting system for patients who have fallen victim to medical malpractice. The New Jersey Patient Safety Act was designed to improve patient safety in hospitals and other care facilities through establishing an error reporting system. Their annual report contains valuable information to users. In 2009 the most common place medical malpractice occurred was in the operating room. Wrong site accidents are a reality in the medical industry and they occur more frequently than one imagines. Patients suffered a medical malpractice injury were most likely required to undergo additional surgery after the incident.

Car Accidents 

According to the New Jersey State Police, officers in Passiac County recorded 27 traffic accidents and 28 fatalities for 2011, five of these occurred in Clifton. In the state, 84.15% of traffic accidents occur in clear weather. As one of the leading causes of death in the country, car accidents are a serious problem in New Jersey. Sometimes these accidents are outside of anyone's control, but there are times when they are the direct result of the negligence of another individual. If this is your case, it is important to understand exactly what the cause of the accident was so that the guilty party can be held liable.

Out of the 27 traffic collisions in the county, ten of them occurred on state highways, interstate highways, and county roads. Distracted drivers are one of the biggest culprits in traffic collisions. Taking your eyes off of the road for only seconds is enough to cause you to lose control of your vehicle, swerve, or read-end the car in front of you. Another reason for car accidents is reckless driving. This includes speeding, dangerous maneuvers, ignoring the rules of the road and traffic signals, and more. The victim of these types of accidents could be entitled to compensation for the guilty party's negligence.
