Officer hit by unknown driver- insurance coverage?

The officer was hit by an unknown driver who left the scene. The officer was on duty. This is a workers compensation claim and it is also covered by the uninsured motorist coverage on the Officer's vehicle. Special rules apply to get the benefit of both coverages as these overlap but cover more of the Officer's damages when combined. We help clients comply with the law to get the full benefit of all insurance coverages. If pursued improperly, injury victims can lose the benefits they should be entitiled to. http://www.independentmail.com/news/2014/may/19/greenville-officer-hurt-when-struck-car/

Person sending texts to driver can be held liable

A New Jersey appeals court recently ruled that a remote texter can be liable for injuries caused when the distracted driver has an accident if the individual sending the texts from another location knew they were being viewed by the driver as he or she is driving.
