Reasons for car accidents

There are a number of different reasons car accidents can occur in New Jersey. The police and the insurance claims adjusters have to identify the cause or causes of the crashes for various reasons. Law enforcement needs the information to determine who has to be given a ticket. The insurance company requires the information to identify the at-fault party, to whom the claims payment should be issued and the amount of the payment.

Techniques that could reduce truck driver shoulder injuries

Truck drivers in New Jersey sometimes experience serious shoulder injuries if part of their duties involve the cranking of landing gears. Not all trucking-related injuries are entirely preventable, especially ones involving someone else's negligence or unsafe road or working conditions. However, a new study found that adjustments to certain techniques involved with the raising or lowering of trailers could help prevent shoulder injuries that sometimes keep drivers off the road and away from a regular paycheck.

Preventing cold stress while working outside

People who work outside during the winter without the proper protection are at risk of getting cold stress. When the human body is unable to maintain the right temperatures, a variety of health problems can occur. These can include frostbite, hypothermia, dehydration, numbness and shivering. A variety of factors contribute to the risk of getting these conditions other than temperatures, including humidity, wind speed and contact with certain surfaces.
