New York bicycle laws

For many New Yorkers, bicycling is an extremely popular method of transportation. Whether you are seeking to reduce your carbon footprint, find a more cost-efficient method of transportation or you just want to add a bit more exercise into your day, there are many benefits to riding a bicycle around the city. However, if you hope to ride a bicycle on the streets of New York, it is very important to understand the state's laws governing bicycle travel.

Legal aid for victims of medical malpractice

Medical malpractice injuries are not always the most severe injuries, but they can often be the most distressing or disappointing injuries simply because they are often suffered because an individual was seeking treatment for a pre-existing injury. Imagine you have a surgical procedure that needs to be performed, the removal of a tumor, for instance, and you visit your health care provider in order to have the operation taken care of. Instead of leaving in better health and free of your tumor, you are now facing additional injuries that will require even more health care to resolve.

New York playgrounds could pose serious threat of injury

If you have a child, you have likely taken them to one of New York City's many playgrounds. Playgrounds are wonderful places that allow children to expend energy and get physical activity in a variety of exciting ways, as well as offer opportunities to meet new friends and play new games. Unfortunately, there are many dangers and hazards that children can find on a playground, and reports seem to indicate that these problems are growing worse in New York.

What is New York's defective product statute of limitations?

For any case, whether it be civil or criminal, it is extremely important to be aware of the statute of limitations, because if its time-limit expires, it is almost impossible to file a claim, no matter how valid the claim may be. This can become even more complex when you consider that the statute of limitations varies depending on the type of case, and each type of case may have a different statute of limitations depending on the state.

Distracted drivers can cause serious accidents

New York is notorious for its crowded streets and dense population, complete with daily traffic that will put even the most seasoned of drivers on edge. Thousands of accidents occur annually in the city and state of New York, and some of them are tragic freak accidents that nobody could have avoided or predicted. However, it would be erroneous to say that all accidents are unavoidable, and there are plenty of them that may have been prevented if drivers had only paid more attention.
