At Console & Associates, we believe the holiday season is a time for giving. This year, our law firm made a donation to Forgotten Angels Equine Rescue in Medford, NJ, to save the life of a retired racehorse.
Without help, this beautiful creature would have ended up at the slaughterhouse. Instead, he will be joining an Equine Therapy Program that will help veterans with PTSD cope with

The times when you most need a lawyer – divorce, injury, custody, criminal charges – are usually undesirable events. It’s no wonder, then, that these past and potential negative events can cloud public opinion of lawyers and lawsuits.
Legal matters are inevitable in life, but what people often forget is that attorneys are not the cause of your legal problems. Instead, they are the allies you have

With Independence Day on the horizon, it won’t be long until fireworks light up the night sky across the nation. There may be few things more American than watching the rockets’ red (and blue, green, and gold) glare, but remember that even the smallest sparklers are still explosive – and dangerous – pyrotechnics.

When fans across South Jersey and beyond bought tickets to see Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa this past Friday, they had no idea they’d also witness a shocking accident.
A railing at the BB&T Pavilion on the Camden Waterfront collapsed during the show. It sent dozens of concertgoers
On any snowy day, think about your walking route. Can you take an elevator instead of potentially slippery steps? At any point on your path, do you have the option of using a tunnel instead of walking out in the open? If so, do – during winter storms, minimizing the risk of a slip and fall on ice the most important thing you can do.
Poet Robert Frost may have famously taken the road less traveled, but he probably didn’t do it during an ice storm. A snowy day is not the time to pioneer your own route – and trying could increase your risk of suffering a slip and fall on ice. In slippery weather conditions, the route you walk could make a big difference in your safety.

Feeling ill? Your cough might be more than seasonal allergies or a nasty cold. Every year, early autumn sees an upsurge in cases of a severe form of pneumonia called Legionnaires’ disease, according to the New Jersey Herald. And if you’re like many Legionnaires’ disease patients, you never even realized
A man vanished during his honeymoon, never to be seen again. Investigators found bloodstains in his cabin and more streaks of blood down the side of the ship.
When a woman traveling with relatives didn’t return to the cabin as planned, her travel companions assumed she was out enjoying herself. Only as
We’ve all been there – trapped in an ocean of glaring red brake lights, waiting for what seems like an eternity for the bumper-to-bumper traffic to clear. Yet when it does, there’s no obvious reason for traffic to have slowed to a crawl in the first place. No debris from an
Every year, thousands of young people die in auto accidents, and hundreds of thousands sustain injuries. Even one avoidable child death is too many, but statistics show the problem is far more widespread than that. On average, more than a dozen children under 12 die every week in a crash – and that’s excluding teenagers, who make up the single most at-risk group for car accidents.

We often frame discussions of cancer in terms of war. We talk about “cancer battles,” in which “winning” means surviving. Yet just like literal warfare, cancer can leave survivors with scars – physical and emotional. Many real cancer survivors don’t always feel victorious after beating cancer. They may struggle with the physical and psychological consequences of the illness. Cancer survivors have an increased risk of suffering serious
If you’re one of the 84% of car owners whose vehicles need service right now, you’re putting yourself, your family, and everyone on the road at risk every time you get behind the wheel. The worst part is that you probably don’t even know that you’re in danger.
April is spring’s National Car Care Month, one of two months (the other is October) dedicated to promoting
For a parent, the possibility of your child – your baby – suffering a debilitating brain injury is unimaginable – but for millions of parents, that nightmare is a bleak reality.
Children age four and under and adolescents ages 15 through 19 are more likely than any other age groups to suffer a life-changing TBI. Even between ages four and 15, the risks are high, and the

There’s something your rental company isn’t telling you: your car might still have serious safety defects. Don’t assume a recalled car is fixed before you rent it.
Last year was a record year for safety-related car recalls. If your car wasn’t among the tens of millions of vehicles with potentially deadly defects, you might have breathed a sigh of relief and not given the news another thought.
