When does the time limit for medical malpractice claims begin?

Many people have heard the phrase statute of limitations, which refers to the amount of time in which you can file a legal claim for an accident or incident. This statute exists for a number of reasons, and it is not concrete. Even if the statute expires, you may still be able to file a claim, though it will likely be more difficult. For some injuries, such as medical malpractice cases, it is not always apparent that an injury has occurred.

Legal help with complex bicycle accidents

Bicycle accidents are an interesting case because depending on the circumstances, a bicyclist could be the victim or the aggressor. Bicycles are fairly common on the busy streets of New York, and as bike messengers or delivery workers speed about to meet their deadlines, they may cut corners when they can. This can include weaving in and out of traffic, biking on sidewalks or even biking through public areas. Such behavior can put many people at risk of injury.

Police involved in New York car accident

It is not uncommon to see police vehicles at the scene of an accident. In fact, calling the police should be (and usually is) the first course of action for people involved in a car accident, as not only can police provide an authoritative legal perspective to an accident, but the testimony and notes they take in the accident can be crucial to a court hearing. But recently in New York, police were involved in an accident in a different way.

Understanding automobile recalls

We use many different products in our daily lives, but it is arguable that nothing is more important than our automobiles. Our cars take us to and from our places of work; we drive them to the grocery store. There is perhaps no single product that we use so consistently and with such importance, and yet cars are a bit of a double-edged sword in that they are also arguably the most dangerous products we use.
