Personal injury and death can come from construction accidents

In Brooklyn and throughout New York, construction is a part of daily life. There are always buildings being erected and maintenance and repairs are being done. This is a boon to the economy and provides jobs to skilled workers, whether they work directly for a construction company or are contractors. However, the benefits do not eliminate the dangers faced by people who do this type of physical labor. Accidents can happen in the blink of an eye, whether it is due to a company mishap or employee negligence. When there is an accident and workers suffer personal injury or death, understanding the next step is critical when seeking compensation in a lawsuit.

Personal injury incidents spark private sanitation crackdown

New Yorkers will understand that the amount of trash that is generated in a municipality this size will require a lot of garbage trucks moving around at all hours to pick it up. When the number of businesses that use private haulers is added to the mix, there is major danger of encountering one of these vehicles when out as a driver, bicyclist or pedestrian. This can lead to accidents. People should be cautious and aware of this.

Get experienced help for compensation for personal injury

When a New York resident is injured due to someone else's negligence, be it on the road or in a hospital, they most likely are unaware about the long treacherous road they are about to embark upon. Hospital tests and medications begin to pile up, as do costs related to repairing the injured vehicle. At the same time, the person who has been injured is very likely not to be able to return to work temporarily, or even permanently, and this means their source of income might become reduced or ends altogether at the very time they need it the most.

What's the difference between personal injury and workers' comp?

New York residents may be aware that the type of injury they suffer in an accident plays a significant role in the amount of compensation they can recover. However, they may not be aware that the place where the accident occurred might also be important. Factors such as what the injured party was doing when he or she got injured could play a big role in determining if someone can pursue a personal injury lawsuit or a workers' compensation claim.

Where do you go if someone else injures you?

One instant a New York resident is likely driving down the road or entering a store, going about their business with no more than the usual concerns on their mind. The next instant, a personal injury, through either a car accident, a slip and fall on someone else's property or a medical mistake, can potentially plunge an accident victim's life into turmoil and uncertainty. No one actually plans to get hurt, which is why one usually doesn't have a financial or emotional plan in place.

Dog bite laws in New York

Dogs may be man's best friend but there are times when man's best friend turns on him or her as well. When a dog bites someone, the dog owner may become liable for the injuries that have been caused to the victim, depending both on the laws of the state and on the danger level of the dog in question.

School bus accident injures several

With school season back in full swing, mostly every driver on the street knows the protocol to follow when a school bus stops in front of him or her. It may seem overkill to some, but ensuring the safety of children while getting on or off the bus is no small matter. This is why stopping a good distance behind a halted bus and slowing down in a school zone is part of our safety culture and law.

Who can file a premises liability claim?

When someone owns or operates property, such as a store, restaurant or even private property, they have a duty to ensure their property is relatively safe so that people who are entering it do not suffer an injury. Through premises liability, New Yorkers can hold the owner accountable for their personal injuries.

Birth injuries can have long-term consequences

Every day New York families welcome new babies into the world and celebrate the joy of their new additions. Although many newborns start their lives healthy and thriving, others undergo difficult and sometimes dangerous birth processes that can threaten their short- and long-term health. While some birth complications are unavoidable, birth injuries are incidents caused by medical errors and, generally, can be prevented through reasonable medical care.

Spare tire flies off truck, causing fatal accident

A truck driver may be behind the wheel when an accident takes place but not all situations are under their control. When the accident is not caused by negligence but rather with the vehicle's maintenance, then the trucking company may also be responsible for the injuries and destruction caused. It is the company's duty to ensure that the truck driver not only drives responsibly but is also given a vehicle that is properly maintained.
