New Jersey residents who have been in a car crash should get themselves checked out by a doctor as soon as possible. This is because a medical professional can check for symptoms of a concussion or traumatic brain injury (TBI). Tests can be done that check for the ability to recall words or if there are signs of memory loss. Other symptoms of a head injury include a lack of balance or a change in mood over time.
If you live in the state of New Jersey, you know that each month presents its own challenges with respect to the weather.
According to the 2016 Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries, logging is the most dangerous job in America. New Jersey residents may also face a higher risk of an on-the-job fatality if they work as roofers or iron or steel workers. Loggers had a fatal injury rate of 135.9 per every 100,000 full-time equivalent (FTE) workers. This list was published in late 2017 by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Most drivers in New Jersey don't doubt that technology is distracting more and more people behind the wheel. The U.S. Department of Transportation has noted a 10 percent rise in car crash fatality rates from 2014 to 2017, and this could be traced to the increased use of smartphones and in-car infotainment systems. A recent AAA analysis showed just how distracting both can be.
