New York bicyclist fatally injured in truck accident

We sometimes talk about vehicle accidents as a hierarchy, almost a food chain in which the smaller vehicles are extremely susceptible to injury from the larger ones. Tractor-trailers and 18-wheelers obviously occupy the top of this list, which descends from large cars and trucks to smaller cars, and finally to motorcycles and bicycles. In most accidents, cars are involved in some way or another because they are the most common types of vehicles. But sometimes, a very large separation of size and weight leads to a catastrophic tragedy.

What to know about animal attacks on other people's property

There are many different dangerous property conditions that could cause an injury if a person is not aware of them, such as puddles of water or rotting wood. But not all dangerous property conditions have to do with a house itself or with an inanimate object for that matter. Depending on the circumstances, a pet or animal could qualify as a dangerous property condition, and if you are injured by such a creature, you could be compensated at the owner's expense.

Legal aid for victims of defective products in New York

What is perhaps the most frightening thing about product liability accidents is the vast scope in which they can occur, and how there is no telling what product may cause an injury or how serious that injury may be. For example, you could have a defective toy that seriously bruises your child, or you could have a faulty smoke detector that fails to alert you of a fire, causing your house to burn down.

New York man convicted of DWI following fatal accident

When it comes to car accident personal injury claims, it can sometimes be very difficult to get the compensation you deserve because there is simply not enough evidence to determine who was truly at fault in the accident. This is generally the hardest part about making a successful claim because even eyewitness testimony can sometimes be unreliable, and reconstructing accidents is a difficult and complex process. However, there are some instances in which no investigations or reconstructions are required, and fault can be easily determined based on certain factors.
