No One Stops After Man is Run Over Multiple Times in the Bronx

Q: Who is at fault if multiple drivers hit a pedestrian?

A hit-and-run automobile accident literally adds insult to injury. It is bad enough when a driver’s reckless, negligent, or intentional actions or inactions cause personal injury or wrongful death to someone else, but failing to stop and render aid or call for help makes the situation worse for both the driver and the victim.

It's even harder to imagine multiple vehicles following suit, striking the same victim and also driving away.

Q: What charges and consequences may a police officer face for off-duty conduct unbecoming an officer?

Add to that the allegation that the accident was caused by an off-duty NYPD officer driving while intoxicated-- and it’s front page news.

Avoid the Window Table

Q: Who is responsible for patrons’ personal injuries or property damage after a car drives through a store-front?

There’s a new drive-thru pizzeria in the Bronx, New York. At least, that’s how it looked when the dust from the accident had settled.

Engineer Escapes Criminal Prosecution in Fatal New York Train Crash and Joins Victims List

Q: Is it possible to cause an accident, but also be a victim?

When a train accident occurs and leaves personal injury and wrongful death victims in its wake, people want answers and accountability. Very often, fingers initially point to the engineer when mechanical failures or track problems are apparently not involved.

But what if the engineer is merely another victim?

In December, 2013 a Metro North train took a turn at 82 miles per hour in a 30 mph zone, causing the train to fly off the tracks.

Fatal New York City Trucking Accident Pile-up

Q: Are commercial trucks and their drivers subject to additional rules and regulations that don’t apply to cars and ordinary drivers?

If you’ve travelled through the Bronx, New York, you know that nothing is worse than the usual traffic on the George Washington Bridge--unless of course the bridge is closed as a result of a multiple-fatality trucking accident.

Such was the case two days after Christmas when a car, two big rigs, and a pick-up truck were involved in a chain reaction pile up that took three lives and injured five others at the George Washington Bridge.

In an accident too horrific to imagine, the pick-up truck was reportedly idling behind a stopped 18 wheel tractor trailer and was crushed when a second big rig barreled into its rear.
