Car accidents and vicarious liability

Many of the vehicles on New York's roadways are business vehicles. Semi-trucks, delivery trucks, vans, and even some passenger vehicles that are driven for business purposes can surround an individual while driving. Sadly, just because a person is driving for business doesn't mean that he or she will drive safely. Distracted, drunk and tired driving knows no bounds, meaning that even those who drive for a living can cause a devastating accident that leaves innocent and unsuspecting motorists seriously injured.

3 reasons plaintiffs often wait to explore wrongful death claims

For anyone coping with the death of a loved one, the days, weeks and months after the person dies can be a blur. If someone caused the death of your family member or friend, you may need to pursue legal options. In fact, because the statute of limitations for filing a wrongful death claim in the Empire State is two years, you likely need to act fast to seek compensation for your damages. 

Pedestrian deaths have spiked, cell phones partially to blame

It doesn't take a genius to realize that New York is filled with pedestrians. For many, walking is the best way to get to where they're going, while others must walk to find another mode of transportation, be it a taxi, rideshare or subway, to go further distances. While walking in our city shouldn't be a dangerous endeavor - after all, one would think that New Yorkers would be used to driving near pedestrians - this simple act can prove fatal. Sadly, a recent study has shown that pedestrians are at a greater risk of being injured or killed in car accidents than they have been at any other point in the last 30 years.
