Red Bank Property Crimes

If you’ve been charged with a property crime in the state of New Jersey, you need a good criminal defense attorney to handle your case in court.

Property crimes can take the form of theft, robbery, or burglary, each of which is defined differently under the law.

Theft is defined as the improper taking of another person’s property or services, whether it’s shoplifting, receiving stolen property, theft of services, or theft by deception. Any amount stolen over $75,000 constitutes as second-degree theft. Any amount stolen between $500 to $75,000 is third degree theft. Fourth degree theft is any amount stolen between $200 but no more than $500.

Robbery is defined as any theft that is committed with a form of violence. In other words, the robber has to have threatened bodily harm, used force against a victim, or threatened to commit any other first or second-degree crime.

Burglary is defined as any unlawful entry into a dwelling for the purpose of committing a crime. Burglary may include a theft, but doesn’t require a theft to occur to constitute a burglary charge. Any accompanying criminal act, such as murder, vandalism, arson, and rape can result in burglary charges.

If you’ve been charged with a property crime, call our team of criminal defense lawyers today at 888-355-4752.

Red Bank Motorcycle Accidents

Last year, the National Safety Council announced that 19,100 people have lost their lives in motorcycle accidents. Motorcycle deaths grew by 8.3 percent nationwide.

One of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents is head-on collisions. Head-on collisions account for 56% of motorcycle accident deaths. In car-motorcycle accidents, the car strikes the motorcycle from the front 78% of the time. Rear-end collisions only account for 5% of total crashes.

Left-hand turns account for 42% of all car-motorcycle accidents. Turning cars usually strike motorcycles when they are going through an intersection, passing a car, or trying to overtake a car.

Motorcyclists colliding with fixed objects account for 25% of motorcyclist deaths. Crumbling pavement, potholes, and debris can also increase a motorcyclist’s chances of losing control of his vehicle.

If you’re a motorcyclist who’s been injured on the road, you should check your insurance policy to make sure you are covered for property damage and medical expenses. In an accident where the other driver is uninsured or underinsured, your own motor vehicle insurance may compensate you for your injuries.

If you’ve been injured on the road, call our personal injury lawyers today at 888-355-4752.
