Rapid bike messengers pose hazards for NYC pedestrians

New York is one of the most amazing cities in the world and life here can be extremely fast-paced. The bicycle messengers that shuttle food, documents and other items throughout the city exemplify the rapid rate at which things can get done. Because the Big Apple's streets get so congested, it only makes sense to have small package deliveries handled by bicyclists. They can cut through the traffic and bypass many of the obstacles that leave cars and truck crawling at a snail's pace.

What should I do if I think a nursing home is acting negligently?

Typically, elder care professionals are able to provide an appropriate level of care for their residents. But unfortunately, there have been incidents of abuse and neglect in nursing homes. And there are a number of telltale signs that could indicate a nursing home patient is suffering from poor treatment. These signs include malnutrition, dehydration, bedsores and stiffening muscles.

Manufacturers may be held in strict liability in defect cases

If you own a car, SUV, truck or any other kind of motor vehicle, the investment you made is for more than just transportation. You also paid for a vehicle that will help keep you safe while you are on the road. A vehicle malfunction while in motion could result in occupants suffering serious injuries.

A two-second distraction can double the risk of a car crash

There are many people who spend a great deal of time behind the wheel of an automobile. In fact, it can become an ingrained part of their daily routine. Unfortunately, it is easy to forget how important it is to keep your focus on the road and avoid succumbing to distractions.

What to do if you receive a product recall notice

For most people, safety is the main concern in their lives. When you have children, you worry about what school to send them to, and what activities they should participate in. However, the last thing you want to worry about is if the products we are giving them are safe for consumption. This is, unfortunately, something we do have to worry about.

Alleviating fears after serious injury and loss

As the economy starts to heal, so too, does the construction industry. With construction on the rise again in New York, those once vigilant in adhering to safety rules and regulations are being pulled further away from those parameters as they are more often pushed towards finishing projects on time, at all costs. Unfortunately, with this urgency to complete new construction, the risk of potential injury or death also increases. The grief felt by those left behind to continue working in the construction industry is shared amongst all those whose livelihoods depend on this line of work and their families.
