AASM survey shows prevalence of drowsy drivers

In a survey by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, 45% of the 2,003 respondents admitted to driving in such a drowsy state that they had trouble keeping their eyes open. This, as New York residents should know, is a dangerous condition to drive in. AAA reports that every year in the U.S., there are some 6,400 fatal car crashes that arise from drowsy driving. Drowsiness impairs judgment and slows reaction times.

3 reasons to get a medical opinion after a serious car crash

So, you don't have medical insurance, or your policy has a very high deductible or co-insurance rate. That could mean that you don't want to spend the money on a medical examination after a car crash. After all, you've already got to worry about missed work and fixing your car. You probably don't want to worry about medical bills on top of all of those other financial concerns.

Workplace sexual harassers often go unpunished

Workers in New York and around the country who have been subjected to sexual harassment are often placed in a position where they are expected to work alongside their perpetrators. This was the conclusion researchers from Michigan State University reached after studying sexual harassment cases that were settled through arbitration between 2008 and 2018. The study, which was published by the Hofstra Labor & Employment Law Journal, reveals that the punishments meted out to harassers were not upheld almost half of the time and more than one in four harassers were not punished at all.
