Top Not So Terrifying Tips for Halloween: Driving, Pedestrian Safety & Premises Liability

As a kick-off to the end of the year seasonal fun, Halloween is a treat for costumed children eager to stock up on tasty sweets and families hoping to share the holiday fun with their neighbors and other community members.

Top Not So Terrifying Tips for Halloween in NJ: Driving, Pedestrian Safety & Premises LiabilityWhile children will focus on the excitement, compare costumes, and fun of the day, parents and caregivers will need to be extra vigilant about speeding or negligent and distracted drivers on the road, to ensure the evening ends as a happy and safe holiday for everyone, motorists included. Although this year some families may opt for fewer trick-or-treating hours, avoiding going in large groups or staying closer to home due to COVID-19 fears, fewer costumed children on the streets may make it easier for motorists to keep an eye out for especially little children darting into the street, crossing through parking lots, stopping suddenly in the street to pick up dropped items or walking unsupervised in small groups along the streets.

Halloween has been referred to as the ‘perfect storm’ of risk, because of the limited visibility as a result of darkness or poorly lit streets, significant pedestrian traffic, and various other distractions. According to 42 years of data examined by the Journal of the American Medical Association Pediatrics the risk of pedestrian fatalities is roughly 43% higher on Halloween. As compared to other times of the year, the most significant risk and the increase was among children ages 4-8 years, where there was a 10-fold increase in Halloween pedestrian fatalities.

The New Jersey State Police listed the top factors in fatal pedestrian accidents as distracted driving, impaired driving, and speed. Between January 1 to October 6, 2021, more than 141 pedestrians have been killed in accidents with motor vehicles. According to recent NHTSA data, that is a 13.1% increase in pedestrian fatalities over this time in 2020.

If you or a loved one was recently hit and injured or killed by a vehicle, you may be able to file a pedestrian accident injury or wrongful death claim against that vehicle’s driver. At Kamensky Cohen & Riechelson (KCR), our dependable lawyers have decades of experience handling personal injury claims for clients across New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

Typical Accident Injuries Which Make Halloween Dangerous For Children and Adults

Common accidents and injuries that occur on Halloween are:

How Pedestrians Can Avoid Being Injured While Trick-or-Treating During Halloween in New Jersey

In accordance with NJ Rev Statute 39:4-36 and Title 75, Chapter 35 of the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes, pedestrians have the right of way in a crosswalk. On Halloween, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recommends that pedestrians:

  • Halloween Pedestrian Accidents in New Jerseyfollow the rules of the road and intersections, crossing only at the corner and observing traffic signals
  • make sure traffic has stopped or passed by before stepping into the street
  • walk on the sidewalk if one is available and walk as far to the side as safely possible facing traffic if there isn’t
  • wear light or brightly colored costumes that are clearly visible to motorists
  • wear sturdy shoes which fit properly
  • make sure costumes are short enough to prevent one from tripping or falling over
  • trim or decorate the moving parts of the costumes (arms, legs, feet) and treat bags/candy containers with reflective tape which will glow or strongly reflect in the beam of a car’s headlights
  • carry a flashlight or strobe light to aid motorists in detecting, identifying, and reacting to them

With pedestrians over 21, for whom alcohol may play a role in their Halloween festivities and impair judgment, balance, and reaction time, it is recommended that they create a “buddy system” and plan a way to get home safely (i.e., designated driver, rideshare, arrange a safe spot to be picked up, etc).

8 Things Motorists Can Do To Make the Roads Safer For Halloween Pedestrians in NJ

A USDOT review of Pedestrian Safety Research in the US and Abroad stated that parents overestimate their children’s ability to handle street crossings in terms of what they know and how well they will perform. This study cited earlier research that indicated that roughly 75 percent of child pedestrian-related automobile accidents occurred at non-intersection locations, and that number increased to 85-90% among children under 5; who were most likely to run into the street at midblock locations.

The other group highest at risk during Halloween according to the NHTSA, are younger drivers (21-34 years old), who are often inattentive, drowsy, and accounted for nearly half of all deaths in drunk-driving/DWI crashes on Halloween night.

With this in mind, during the early evening and late hours of Halloween, drivers should:

  • be prepared to stop for children crossing the streets even if they’re not at an intersection
  • drive below the speed limit in residential areas to give themselves more time to react
  • reduce or eliminate audio distractions like the radio or the telephone
  • exercise extreme caution when entering or exiting driveways, alleys, driving into a parking lot, backing out, or turning
  • contact law enforcement personnel if they see an impaired, drunk, or injured person on the road
  • keep their windows and side mirrors clean
  • make sure their headlights are on and properly functioning
  • not drink and drive.

Avoiding Liability on Mischief Night Or Halloween: Duty of Care for Trick-or-Treaters

Halloween and Premises Liability attorneys, Trenton NJ As a homeowner or landlord, you may find yourself liable if any injuries or accidents are caused by the condition of your property. As such you have a duty of care to make your property, walkways, or premises are reasonably safe for trick-or-treaters and even those who may trespass onto your property.

Either because of decorations or signage on your property which can be seen as an invitation, “premises liability” means you are legally liable for the safety of any “guests” injured on your property. Since your “guests” expect your property to be reasonably safe, if they are injured by a dangerous condition on your property that you knew or should have known about, and you failed to remedy or warn of them of, you could be held liable for damages.

As such, if a trick-or-treater or an adult supervising them slips, trips, or falls on your property, your bodily injury liability coverage may be sufficient. So, to improve your home’s safety and reduce your premises liability:

  • be mindful of the type of decorations you have and where they are placed
  • use battery-powered light sources for decorations
  • avoid dry combustible materials like corn husks
  • keep all entrances and exits free from obstructions
  • keep pets away from the front door, as unknown sounds or sights can overwhelm them
  • make sure the external area of the property is properly lit so children and adults can see the path to and from your door or container of treats, and
  • even if you’re not participating in trick-or-treating, turn off the exterior lighting and keep all walkways clear so children who may still knock at your door, may safely enter and exit your property.

NOTE: In cases of Mischief Night mayhem, most basic homeowners’ policies cover damages to your home caused by vandalism.

What To Do If You are Injured on Residential or Commercial Property During Halloween

  • seek medical attention as soon as possible
  • use your mobile phone to photograph and accurately document the scene and any conditions (i.e., decorations, lighting, etc) that contributed to the injury accident
  • collect the names and contact details of any witnesses
  • inform the homeowner, landlord, or property manager of your injury but limit discussions that could verbally or physically escalate the incident
  • contact an experienced personal injury accident attorney
  • DO NOT sign any liability waivers or medical release forms prior to consulting an attorney

Whiplash Injuries in Personal Injury Cases in New Jersey

One of the most common soft tissue injuries arising from a motor vehicle accident is whiplash.

Whiplash Injuries in Personal Injury Cases in New JerseyIt is not uncommon to leave the scene of a motor vehicle accident with soreness, maybe some aches and pains. Sometimes, however, it takes a day or two for the physical effects to show up. Soft tissue damage, such as muscular strains, is what many accident victims suffer. When your car is hit hard enough from behind to impact the spine, you may injure your neck when it is bent forward and backward or backward then forward by force. The extent of the whiplash may depend on the impact location, directly in the center rear or angled left rear or right rear. But any activity that violently forces the head forward and back or vice versa, like sports injuries, slip and falls, physical beatings, and roller coaster type rides, can cause the condition. All causes considered, whiplash affects the muscles, nerves, tendons, and discs in the neck.

Most Common Whiplash Symptoms in Ewing, NJ

Typical whiplash symptoms involve the neck but can also affect other body parts when pain radiates from the neck to your extremities or up to your brain. For example, you may experience neck or shoulder pain and stiffness that causes or occurs with low back pain. In addition, an injury in the cervical spine can affect the lower regions of the spine, such as the thoracic (middle) or lumbar (lower) spine. Other symptoms include pain or numbness in the arms or hands when connecting nerves reaching the neck and shoulder and impinge on blood flow to the extremities. You may also experience neck and brain-related symptoms, such as headache, dizziness, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), blurred vision, irritability, fatigue, and trouble sleeping and concentrating. Moreover, your memory may fail you. These symptoms appear like other conditions, so examining physicians must run tests for a correct diagnosis.

When you suffer a collision on the road or other accident, you probably want to visit your physician right away for a complete physical exam and review of your medical history. Your physician may want to rule out other causes for your aches and pains, especially involving the neck and spine. For example, similar symptoms appear in arthritic patients. Running tests like x-rays to check for bone fractures or tissue problems is a common first step. But an x-ray may not show soft tissue injury, so your doctor may order MRI, DTI, PET, and CT scans for a more detailed look at the soft tissue (muscles and ligaments), bones, brain, and other organs. Ruling out other cervical and other pain sources, a radiologist and physician can review the scans for any significant damage, such as fractures, tears, or breaks. If not, whiplash may be the diagnosis.

Whiplash treatment and recovery process, East Windsor

Whiplash and Type of Collision in Trenton NJWhile many whiplash patients feel better after a few weeks, more severe whiplashes may need more treatment. If your pain is intense, the neck stiffness comes and goes, tingling, weakness, or numbness in the shoulders or limbs appear, or loss of bladder or bowel control arises, you may require various treatments. Depending on your medical history, age, and health, your doctor may prescribe multiple treatments at specific times in the healing process. So, considering the severity of the injury, medication allergies, sensitivity to pain, and preferences, your doctor may first prescribe ice to relieve pain in the first day or two after injury. Then, to stabilize the neck and decrease the incidence of pain, they could send you home with a neck brace. And once healing begins and the pain lessens, gentle exercise with anti-inflammatory medication, muscle relaxation exercises, physical therapy, massage, acupuncture, electronic nerve stimulation, or chiropractic adjustment may be next in the healing process.

Whiplash injuries typically resolve over a few days to weeks or months unless complications arise. Unfortunately, some violent collision survivors suffer headaches and intermittent or chronic pain for years after an incident. When stretched ligaments, displaced discs, and injured neck joints are the source of the pain, doctors may treat the symptoms with pain management, physical therapy, or surgery. But some continued pain after whiplash is inexplicable. Some suffer for years long after an accident. And living with whiplash complications may deeply diminish a person’s quality of life.

Importance of Whiplash Medical Reports in NJ Negligence Cases

If you need whiplash treatment due to another’s negligence, you want to make sure your doctor concludes in their reports that the accident caused or likely caused your injury. Negligence may be inattentive driving, failing to clean up a spill on supermarket floors, physical assault, abuse, or unnecessary violent play in sports. Insurance companies that typically pay for personal injury claims against drivers, businesses, or other organizations need medical verification and proof that the injury the claimant suffers is from an accident caused by the insured. In addition, insurance companies may raise defenses to payment on claims that the injured party had other injuries, pre-existing conditions, or causes of their pain and injury. For this reason, a personal injury victim must see their doctor soon after an accident and narrate what occurred in the accident, and chronicle the symptoms. All of this is highly valuable information for your personal injury lawyer who is handling your claim.

Keep track of your Medical Expenses after Whiplash Injury

Keep track of your Medical Expenses in West Windsor, NJIt is also essential to keep track of the out-of-pocket expenses you have paid since the accident. For example, you may pay co-pays for doctors, radiologists, chiropractors, acupuncturists, physical therapists, and lab technicians if you have insurance. If you do not have insurance, those costs are all out of pocket. And attending the various doctor and therapy appointments may result in days off work that are either unpaid or paid sick days. In addition, you may pay for pain medications and a cervical collar. And through the healing and treatment, you may suffer pain in living your daily life. With whiplash, the simplest actions you take for granted, like turning your head to see over your shoulder when you back out of a driveway, are painful and prevent you from doing your normal activities.

All of the information you track, including a journal of your pain and difficulties performing daily tasks, is vital to your attorney. And you will need an attorney to represent you since without one; the insurance company will attempt not compensating you for your damages, including your medical, therapeutic, and pharmaceutical costs, as well as your economic losses from days off and sick days or vacation pay lost due to the accident.

Types of School Bus Accidents and Injuries

Serving Clients in Trenton, Princeton, Pennington, Lawrence, and East Windsor NJ in all Matters Related to Personal Injury Cases.

Types of School Bus Accidents and Injuries AttorneysSchool bus-related accidents cause approximately 137 deaths per year, leaving hundreds of other people injured. However, there are years when this figure climbs higher. In November 2016, in Chattanooga, Tennessee, 30 children were injured, and five others died in a school bus collision. The bus driver was identified as a 24-year-old male who was apparently speeding before the bus flipping over and crashing against a tree, being this a single-vehicle accident.

School bus accidents not only endanger our children’s safety while riding local buses. The school bus is, in fact, the safest place to be if a school-bus related tragedy were to happen. Deaths resulting from school bus collisions between 2001-2010 impacted 72% of the passengers and drivers of other vehicles compared to only 7% of people traveling inside school buses, having the remaining percentage represented by cyclists and pedestrians.

Growing figures of property damage, injuries, and death resulting from school bus accidents can be classified into three main types.

School Bus Collision Against Another Vehicle

Other motor vehicles are involved in nearly 75% of all school bus accident tragedies. An average family car is much lighter and smaller than a school bus, which is basically a truck, causing large damage and considerable injuries.

School bus routes are used during mornings and afternoons, affecting the regular traffic, slowing it down, and forcing other drivers to navigate otherwise easy-flowing roads. In other words, running late in your regular commute having a bus in front of you means the speed limit will drop to only 15 mph instead of the typical 45mph, including several stops to pick up or drop off children.

School bus drivers are sometimes found at fault for these motor vehicle accidents due to reckless driving, causing injuries such as fractured bones, whiplash syndrome, and even death.

School Bus Accident Involving Pedestrians

One cyclist or pedestrian is hit and killed by a moving school bus approximately once a month in the U.S. If the victim survives, they might suffer from extensive injuries ranging from fractured bones to paralysis. Whether you are a pedestrian or a vehicle driver, Complying with road safety regulations becomes of utmost importance during the school year (in-person school sessions).

Although crossing guards regulate traffic, they often halt traffic randomly filling the road with pedestrians. Pedestrians and cyclists could very easily get impacted by a distracted bus driver or a driver rolling through a stop sign, especially considering a large bus offers very poor visibility at a close range.

Bus Occupants Involved In School Bus Accidents

On average, over 23 million children in the U.S. are transported by school buses daily, and studies report that up to 17,000 injuries happen yearly inside those buses. Nearly 42% of the injuries result from actual school bus accidents, meaning that a larger percentage of the injuries are only minor scraping and bruising when occupants get on or off the bus or because of the bus not being in optimal conditions.

Bus Occupants Involved In School Bus AccidentsChildren between 11 and 14 years old sustained approximately half of the injuries, abrasions, strains, head injuries, and sprains shown as the most common ones. Unfortunately, nearly 7% of all school bus incident-related injuries happening onboard result in a child’s death.

Options are available to protect your family and children from situations that seem too hard to prevent, like school bus accidents. Study road regulations applicable to your state, avoid distractions while driving, maintain a safe distance from school buses traveling on the same road as you.

How Are Damages for Pain and Suffering Calculated?

Serving Personal Injury Victims and Getting Compensation for Damages in Trenton, Lawrence, Princeton, Hamilton, and Mercer County.

How Are Damages for Pain and Suffering Calculated?We can’t give strict rules or formulas to put a dollar value on the pain and suffering you endured in a personal injury case, but here are some guidelines for what an insurance company might consider.

If you were injured due to someone else’s carelessness, in most cases, you could seek compensation from that person’s insurance company by filing what’s known as a third-party claim.

This article will discuss the conditions under which an insurance company will compensate for pain and suffering and how these damages are calculated.

After you have established that the at-fault party, hereinafter called the “defendant,” is the person responsible for your injuries (in other words, “liable”), you will then need to present evidence of all the losses you sustained in the incident (called “damages”). The defendant’s insurance company should compensate you for your medical expenses as well as any wages you lost as a result of the defendant’s actions.

Besides, the insurance company should provide you with some compensation for your general “pain and suffering.” Let’s discuss when an insurance company will compensate for pain and suffering and how these kinds of damages are calculated.

First: What is “Pain and Suffering?”

This is a legal term that includes a host of injuries that a plaintiff may suffer in an accident. The term includes physical pain caused by an accident and physical discomfort resulting from necessary medical treatment. It also covers emotional and mental injuries such as fear, insomnia, grief, worry, inconvenience, and even the loss of life enjoyment.

Almost without exception, in an injury case, the plaintiff should recover some amount, sometimes small and sometimes very large.

An insurance company or a jury will look at both the type of injury you suffered and the nature of your medical treatment as two basic ways to determine the degree of pain and suffering you have endured.

If you’re in a car accident that results in $5,000 in damage to your car and $15,000 in medical bills, your “pain and suffering” damages are going to be significant. But if that same accident results in only $500 in medical bills (for x-rays that came back negative), your “pain and suffering” damages will likely be nominal.

Second: How Does an Insurance Company Calculate Pain and Suffering Damages?

No rule or law says how this must be done. But many plaintiffs’ attorneys use one of two methods for calculating pain and suffering. The first method is to multiply the plaintiff’s actual damages (medical bills and lost wages) by a factor between 1 and 5, depending on the severity of the injury. For example, if a plaintiff incurs $4,000 in medical bills related to a broken arm, he might multiply that by three and conclude that $12,000 represents a reasonable amount for pain and suffering.

The second method many plaintiffs’ attorneys use is a per diem (Latin for “per day”) approach. Under this method, a certain amount—perhaps $100—is given to every day from the day of the accident until the plaintiff reached maximum recovery.

Insurance companies are not under any obligation to use either of these two methods to calculate pain and suffering. Many insurers use computer programs to determine what settlement they should offer. These programs take into account the type of injury and the type of medical treatment the claimant sought.

For example, insurance companies usually give greater weight to a physician’s medical treatment than a chiropractor. Insurance companies also take into account the length of time the claimant sought treatment. If the treatment seems excessive for the type of injury, the insurance company will not include all of the treatment to calculate pain and suffering.

Third: How Do You Prove Pain and Suffering?

Third: How Do You Prove Pain and Suffering?Proof of this type of injury may take many forms. The more evidence you have to support your claim, the better chance you’ll have of recovering an amount you find satisfactory.

The extent of your injury and accompanying pain and suffering can be evidenced through documentation such as photographs. It can also be evidenced in personal journals that record your physical and emotional feelings. Documentation from friends and family is important. It can provide additional evidence of the way the particular injury has negatively impacted your life. Proof of treatment by a mental health professional is also helpful and necessary for forgeries such as increased anxiety, insomnia, or depression.

Fourth: How Do You Know What’s Fair?

How will you know if the offer an insurance company makes in the settlement is reasonable? A good approach is to use the multiplier method or the per diem method discussed above to get an estimated idea.

On top of that, you need to consider whether additional circumstances might influence that amount, either up or down. For example, if your injury left you with a permanent scar on your face, it would be reasonable to increase the amount of pain and suffering you consider to be fair. Conversely, a minor bump on the head that healed quickly probably will not be compensated for very much. Keep these factors in mind when evaluating whether the insurance company has reasonably and fairly valued your pain and suffering.

Pre-Litigation Settlement for your Mercer County Personal Injury Claim

Settle your injury case before trial with Trenton NJ Injury Lawyers

While movies like Erin Brockovich and The Rainmaker have popularized lengthy courtroom battles where the injured party waits with baited breath for a jury verdict, many personal injury lawsuits are settled before ever going to court. A “pre-litigation” settlement can have benefits for both the plaintiff (you) and the defendant (the negligent party). When accepting a pre-litigation settlement, you are essentially dropping your lawsuit in exchange for a monetary award. While most personal injury cases are settled, it is still important that you and your personal injury attorney are prepared to go to court if necessary to defend your rights.

Let’s take a closer look at why it can often be beneficial for both parties to settle outside of the court.

Should I Accept a Settlement for my Trenton Personal Injury Case?

There are several reasons why you (the plaintiff) may wish to consider accepting a settlement rather than trying your case in a court. A trial can often take months, if not years, to conclude. By accepting a settlement, you can avoid a lengthy trial process, and use your settlement compensation to begin rebuilding your life now. Additionally, a longer trial means more spent on legal fees, and in cases of serious injury, medical expenses can add up fast. Finally, if your injury left you unable to work, receiving compensation such as lost income and lost earning capacity sooner rather than later is important.

Why Should the Insurance Company Accept a Settlement for my Hamilton Personal Injury Case?

The biggest motivator for an insurance company to accept a settlement rather than taking a personal injury case to court is the risk of a large jury-awarded settlement. Insurance companies generally do not like taking the risk of a jury awarding a much larger settlement than they are prepared to pay, and as such are open to negotiating a more reasonable settlement. Additionally, corporate lawyers and legal representation is very expensive, and the cost of paying for their representation may not be worth it if they can settle with you in the earlier stages of the process.

What Do I Do if I Think I have a Princeton Personal Injury Claim?

What Do I Do if I Think I have a Personal Injury Claim?

If you believe you have a personal injury claim, the most important step to take is speaking with an experienced personal injury lawyer. If you accept a settlement for your injury, and then realize it wasn’t enough to cover your expenses, you have no recourse, your injury has already been compensated. An experienced Mercer County, NJ personal injury attorney will know how to properly evaluate the full extent of the expenses and damages your injury has caused, and will fight to make sure you are properly compensated and not taken advantage of. They can advise you when it is wise to accept a settlement, and when it is better to pursue litigation.
