Man in critical condition after accident in Queens

Accidents can strike at any time, under any conditions. Many of us believe that we are most likely to get into a car accident while driving in a parking lot or in a traffic jam, and while that may be true, there is always the chance that you may be struck by a car when crossing the road or walking near parked cars. In one particularly bizarre case that occurred recently in New York, a man was run over by a parked vehicle.

Defective product injuries could mean compensation

We have all seen the warning labels on the products we buy: "keep out of reach of children," or "may cause irritation in contact with eyes and skin." Many of these warnings might seem inane or unnecessary, but these warnings are as much about protecting the company behind the product as they are about keeping consumers safe. If these warnings did not appear on a product, and a consumer was injured by that product, the victim could file a product liability claim.

How risky is bicycling in New York City?

Bicycling is a very common form of transportation in New York City, especially for employees who must arrive at their destination quickly, such as pizza deliverers. Other residents are simply looking for a healthier, cheaper or greener transportation alternative. With this mode of transportation comes many of the same risks as traditional motor vehicles, including accidents. Bicycle accidents are very similar to car accidents because bicyclists are expected to follow many of the same rules as other drivers.

New York leads medical malpractice payouts

According to recent data compiled by a medical malpractice insurer, New York is by far the highest paying state when it comes to medical malpractice claims. Out of all 50 states, only two paid out more than $300 million in 2013. One of these states was Pennsylvania, which paid out $357 million. New York was the other state, the payments of which nearly doubled that of Pennsylvania: $690 million.
