Make your medical malpractice claim easier

When it comes to legal matters, the more preparation you do, the better off you will be. Much like going to the DMV, it is best to simply bring every document you can think of that might be remotely relevant to your issue. Of course, if you are unfamiliar with the litigation process, you may not know just how much information you need to bring. This is especially true in cases of medical malpractice, in which your entire medical history can be relevant.

Bicyclists can pose a danger to pedestrians

When one thinks of traffic accidents, one cannot help but notice the obvious hierarchy of vehicles in a collision. At the top of the hierarchy sit large trucks carrying heavy loads, as any vehicle that strikes such a truck will suffer significant damage, while the truck itself will likely come out of the crash in rather good shape. As you continue down the list, you will come across large cars such as Suburbans or SUVs, then smaller cars including convertibles, and finally two-wheeled vehicles such as motorcycles or bicycles.

Hazardous conditions make driving more difficult

For some, winter may still be coming, but for those of us who live in the far northern states like New York, winter is already here in full force. Our planet's tumultuous climate has already slammed us with a newsworthy blizzard, and with that blizzard came foot upon foot of snow. While we may be more used to driving in hazardous weather conditions than other parts of the country, that does not mean by any stretch that it is safe to drive in such dangerous weather.

Could my hip replacement qualify as a product liability case?

When people hear that products are faulty or defective, either by design or manufacturing mistake, they will likely wonder what products such terminology applies to. It may sound too good to be true, but the fact is that almost any product could be grounds for a product liability case as long as a fault or defect in the product has caused you harm. This applies even to medical devices such as pacemakers or metal hip replacements. As inhabitants of one of the largest cities in the country, there are undoubtedly many New Yorkers who make use of such medical devices.
