Restaurant May Be in Hot Water Over Scalding

Q: Can I sue if burned by hot water at a restaurant?

Things aren’t good in the neighborhood at least that’s according to one family who’s reportedly intent on starting a personal injury lawsuit against their local Applebee’s restaurant over a controversial incident.

The lawsuit stems from a toddler allegedly being “severely burned” after grabbing a couple of scalding hot water the mother had requested for sterilizing utensils.

The parents allege restaurant “employees did not call 911 for over 20 minutes”. But the restaurant is defending itself, claiming its staff was very responsive and “acted with urgency”. It further claims that video footage evidence and the fact that police and EMTs “were on-site within minutes” support its defense.

Legal Options After New York Limo Crash

Q: Who has standing to sue for wrongful death?

Several members of one family were in the limousine including four sisters and three of their husbands.

Q: What happens in the case of an accident involving a government-owned vehicle?

New York City Car accident attorneys have seen it all due to the nature of the many ways people navigate the city. In addition to accidents involving two cars, accidents may also involve trains, motorcycles, buses, trucks, bicycles and pedestrians.

Recently, New York City’s first fatality involving a City Bike rider and a New York City bus went to trial on the criminal charges. It’s not known if a wrongful death action has been commenced.

A married 36-year-old investment banker and father of two was reportedly bicycling without a helmet while wearing an “over-the-ears”-style headset when a city bus driving in the same direction beeped but proceeded to pass the biker very closely as he was cycling passed a parked car.

Q: Does a criminal action impact a wrongful death claim arising from the same incident?

One of the most disturbing kinds of wrongful death cases to handle is one that involves the death of an innocent baby. Such cases are shocking to the conscience, especially when due to the actions of someone whose nature would be expected to be nurturing – – like a mother or a nurse.

A New York wrongful death lawsuit was brought against a licensed practical nurse who was "accused of scalding a disabled toddler" in a bath so hot that it caused "severe burns" that "peeled off the girl’s skin ".

Teen Pushed Off Bridge by Friend Suffers Personal Injuries

Q: If I am pushed and injured, can I sue the person who shoved me?

It was a picturesque scene in a Washington State Park where a bridge three stories tall towered above a river tempted some teenage girls to climb up and step onto the ledge. It was also a personal injury lawsuit waiting to happen.
