Car accident attorneys use the rules of evidence for you

Being injured in a car accident is no small thing. Depending on the severity of the wreck, you could wind up with serious injuries that cause you extensive pain and suffering, force you to miss work and thereby lose your wages, and encumber you with overwhelming medical expenses. These damages can take a toll, leaving you stressed and concerned about how you and your family will get by.

New York worker killed in construction fall

With so little available space in New York's cities, many construction projects involve building up rather than out. This means that construction workers oftentimes have to work at excessive heights every day they go to work. For many of these individuals, the height is nothing more than another part of the job. For others, though, operating at such heights can be frightening. Yet, regardless of how one feels while working many feet up in the air, all of them are at risk of an injurious or fatal fall. This risk is multiplied when employers fail to provide adequate training and proper safety equipment. When a construction accident occurs and a worker falls, the results can be tragic.

Using vicarious liability to recover medical malpractice damages

Medical malpractice can result in extensive harm. Some victims are left with a worsened medical condition that puts their chances of survival at risk, while others are dealt additional physical pain when they receive improper care. Treating these negligence-caused injuries and illnesses can be costly, especially when you take into account lost wages. A victim of medical malpractice who is unable to work may find themselves struggling to pay not only their new and undeserved medical expenses, but also their mortgage or rent, car payment, and grocery expenses.

Failure to diagnose conditions can lead to lawsuits

Receiving a diagnosis for a serious injury or illness can be very upsetting for patients across New York. However, it can also be the first step in treating the condition and getting on the road to recovery. After all, if you do not know what's wrong, it can be all but impossible to know how to make things right.

Five ways drivers can prevent car accidents

You're hit in traffic on the way home from work, and even the pain of your injuries is secondary to your outrage about the accident, itself. The reason is simple: You think the accident could easily have been avoided. You're mad that someone else was negligent or reckless and caused the crash.

We know how to anticipate medical malpractice defenses

Many New Yorkers have false perceptions of litigation. Sure, you have to prove your case by a preponderance of the evidence in a civil case, but merely putting on your case may not be enough. Why? Because aggressive defense attorneys will be doing everything they can to present their side of the story and undermine yours. This is especially true in hospital negligence cases, where numerous expert witnesses may testify, and where the evidence can be complicated for a judge and jury to understand.
