In the wake of the serious highway accident last month that nearly took the life of beloved actor and comedian Tracy Morgan (and ended the life of one of his colleagues), Morgan has filed a lawsuit against Wal-Mart, the company that owns the giant truck that caused the crash. Our personal injury lawyers know what to expect with this case, for we’ve handled similar lawsuits emanating from very similar circumstances.
The lawsuit in the case named Morgan v. Wal-Mart (14-cv-4388), which will be handled in a U.S. District Court in New Jersey (where the crash took place), claims that …

Our experienced personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg represent individuals who have been injured due to the negligence of others, whether or not that negligence occurs on a construction site, in a supermarket or – as is most often the case – on the roadway. Many drivers, often while distracted, choose to drive recklessly, thereby risking the safety of not only themselves, but also everyone with whom they share the road.
Unfortunately, as TIME recently reported, despite ever-increasing numbers of public service announcements warning about the dangers of texting while driving (something that is …

This Fourth of July weekend, Americans will come together with friends, food and drinks to commemorate our nation’s independence. Unfortunately, as our personal injury lawyers know, with celebration inevitably comes the risk of injury. Moreover, the risk of injury on the roads, streets and highways of our country increase exponentially when the Fourth of July holiday is tucked into or tacked onto a weekend, opening the door for a 3-day celebration filled with toxic combinations of automobiles and alcohol.
Just as someone injured by a distracted driver has a legitimate legal claim against said person, so too does someone injured …

Back in 2011, a woman was riding her bicycle on Broad Street in Philadelphia, when she suddenly became the victim of a terrible accident. The woman, then a student at Temple University, was struck by the door of a parked Honda Accord; then, she was struck from behind and run over by a van. Finally, as our experienced personal injury lawyers can report, this month, the woman received the justice she deserves.
The injured woman and her lawyer named three defendants in the lawsuit filed after the accident: the driver whose door hit her, the driver of the van that …

We’ve written at length on this blog about the surprising extent to which low-speed and low-impact auto crashes can cause serious injuries to the drivers inside. Despite the fact that, from the outside, a car might not seem to have incurred serious damage, the passengers inside can be left badly wounded and permanently injured due to their bodies taking the majority of the force from the impact.
Well, it’s one thing to hear all of this information from personal injury attorneys; it’s quite another to hear it from the very insurance companies that so often try to reject claims based …

Our experienced personal injury attorneys represent individuals who have been injured by the negligence of others; more often than not, our clients sustain injuries from auto accidents caused by the recklessness of others. While our clients are frequently harmed as travelers (or drivers) in a motor vehicle that was hit by the negligent driver, sometimes they are pedestrians who are hit by reckless drivers unable or unwilling to safely share the road with those on foot.
According to a new report issued last month, pedestrian deaths in the United States are at an all-time high. Furthermore, if you happen to …

Our experienced personal injury attorneys at the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg frequently represent individuals who have been injured in auto accidents caused by the negligence of others. In the majority of these cases, the disputes involve the other driver their insurance company; when the other driver is at fault, it is their insurance company that is typically liable for damages.
But what happens if the at-fault driver flees the scene of the accident? If you were hit by someone who then fled, you could be facing the prospect of having nobody to hold responsible for the damages you’ve …

The FDA has just recently released new warnings regarding the popular sleep aid Lunesta (Eszopiclone). In addition to issuing new warnings, the government agency has published new requirements that Lunesta must meet in terms of properly warning consumers of the possible dangers of taking Lunesta.
One of the primary reasons for these new developments is the recent discovery by the FDA and others that taking Lunesta can seriously affect the ability of the consumers to do things such as safely drive a car the day after taking the drug.
As personal injury attorneys, our lawyers at the Law Offices of …

At the Law Offices of Aronberg & Aronberg, a majority of our practice is representing individuals who have been injured in auto accidents, many of which could have been avoided. We’d like to share with you some safety tips to keep in mind while driving; suggestions that could help you prevent a costly auto accident.
1. Avoid the “Fast Lane: If you are driving on a multi-lane road like a highway, try to avoid the fast, left-most lane when possible. If you are driving in the center or right lanes, you have more “escape routes” available to you, should you …
