When a Fall Leads to a Lawsuit


Q: When can someone sue for injuries from a fall?

Did you know that falls are not only the leading cause of injury for those over age 65, but that “deaths from falls are rising”, according to a new report?

Preventing falls at home

If you are a senior-- or live with one-- you can reduce the risk of them having a slip, trip and fall accident by decluttering, installing more lights and handrails, repairing any broken steps, and securing any carpeting or rugs. In addition to these improvements and safeguards to the physical space, routine vision checks and reviewing medication lists for any side effects that could increase the risk of falling are also advisable strategies to keep seniors safe from falls.

But what if you fall while on someone else’s property?

Suing Multiple Parties for Personal Injury


Q: Can many parties be at fault in a personal injury case?

Skilled Bronx personal injury attorneys are not only lawyers, they are also detectives.

How do I know if I have a good personal injury case?

Can I Sue If I’ve Been Hurt in a Car Accident in Which Bad Weather Played a Part?


Have you suffered a serious injury in a car accident that occurred during bad weather? If so, you may be under the misconception that because the crash occurred during a dense fog or snowstorm you cannot sue for damages. In fact, as long as the other driver’s negligence or recklessness was at least partially responsible for your injury, you should be able to file a successful claim.

Once you are receiving appropriate medical care, the most important step you can take is to contact a highly skilled car accident attorney.

Suing New York City Agencies for Personal Injury


Q: Are there special rules for accidents involving government vehicles?

As Bronx personal injury attorneys know, the extremely heavy amount of traffic on New York City streets – cars, trucks, buses, bicycles, and a steady stream of pedestrians— leads to frequent accidents.

And accidents, which result in serious personal injury and/or death, often lead to lawsuits.

Recently, a New York woman was reportedly injured when the hydraulic arm of a garbage truck extended to grab a nearby garbage can but accidentally hooked the arm of the bench and “yanked it out of the ground as it pulled the can back in”.

Alleged Medical Malpractice Over Several Years Led to Amputation


Q: Can multiple doctors and hospitals be held liable in a medical malpractice lawsuit?

Whenever someone seeks medical attention for an illness, injury, or accident, they have the right to expect that the medical professionals treating them will provide them with a level of care that is commensurate with accepted medical standards. If the healthcare workers – doctors, nurses, other medical professionals, and the hospital itself – deviate from those standards of care, and the patient suffers a serious injury directly due to that negligence, a medical malpractice lawsuit to recover damages may be warranted.

Very often, a medical malpractice lawsuit, which is a form of a

During the summer months—and even longer in warmer climates-- swimming pools bring happiness and a welcome relief from the heat to people of all ages. Swimming is also great exercise. But swimming pools can be a source of danger and tragedy, too, as New York personal injury attorneys know too well.

Why Are Nursing Home Falls with Injuries So Rampant?


If your loved one has suffered a fall in a nursing home and been seriously injured as a result, you may be wondering, even after receiving an explanation from those in charge, how the accident happened in a place tasked with keeping your relative safe. There are many reasons patients in nursing homes fall. Certainly the elderly and infirm are more prone to falls and fall injuries than the population at large. Unfortunately, however, in too many cases, falls in nursing homes are the result of negligence and/or premises liability.

If your family member is located in the Bronx, Ryan S.

Bronx personal injury attorneys understand how upsetting it is to be involved in a car accident especially if serious injuries are sustained. You might be hurt or frightened or flustered – – or all of the above.

Is Your Workplace Making You Sick?


If you are a generally healthy, energetic person, but experience symptoms of ill health while at work, you may be working in a toxic environment. While the term “toxic workplace” is now more frequently used to describe an atmosphere of discrimination or harassment, what we are discussing here is an environment that is contaminated enough to cause staff members serious physical symptoms.

If you are being sickened by your workplace and your employer is failing to address the issue, you need the services of a seasoned personal injury attorney with experience in toxic tort litigation.

Tragically, Police Brutality Targets the Mentally Ill


Police brutality has always been a part of the culture, particularly against vulnerable segments of the population. One of those neglected, misunderstood, and badly underserved segments of the population is the mentally ill. Now that illegitimate beating, shootings and other killings by overly aggressive police are coming into open view, it is time for those with psychiatric illnesses to get their day in court.

If you have been brutalized by the police because you suffer from mental illness, or have tragically lost a mentally troubled loved one in a police killing, you need to contact a Read more . . .

Who Pays for Injuries Resulting from an Uber Accident?


The yellow taxis have become a symbol of New York City. It turns out, however, that more and more people are turning to rideshare companies to make their way around the boroughs. Uber vehicles are privately owned and maintained by Uber drivers. Because Uber riders opt for this as opposed to a commercially owned and operated taxi, fares are generally available at a lower rate. It is important, however, to be aware of the implications of being involved in a motor vehicle accident involving Uber.
