Determining Liability in a New York Wrongful Death Lawsuit


Q: Can multiple people be sued for an accident?

New York wrongful death attorneys most often wear detective’s hats when determining who is responsible for the death of their client’s loved one. The earlier an attorney is retained the better, so they can be involved as the investigation unfolds, interview witnesses and gather statements (while memories are fresh and before they die or disappear), and otherwise, support their grieving clients. This is how an attorney determines who is responsible for the death and should be sued for damages.

While all deaths are tragic, the death of an innocent young child is extra difficult.

Q: Can I sue after a traumatic brain injury due to a consumer product?

According to a study published in Brain Injury, a medical journal, over 4 million children in America sustained traumatic brain injuries, or “TBIs” from consumer products.

New York Nursing Home Elder Abuse Lawsuits


Q: Are elder abuse cases rising?


They call them the “Golden Years”, but for those facing life in a nursing home or similar long-term care facility, they may be anything but golden. Virtually no one dreams of spending their sunset years in an institutional setting. But for those without spouses or grown children or other family or friends to care for them—or those with special medical needs or psychological issues that require substantial daily care or attention—nursing home care may be unavoidable.

While the vast majority of facilities are staffed with dedicated professionals who provide quality and compassionate care for the elderly or disabled, the sad reality is that many residents in nursing homes and long-term care facilities become victims of elder abuse. And the numbers are rising.

NYC High School Science Lab Burn Injury Suit


Q: Is the City Responsible for Injuries in Public High School Science Experiments?

New York City personal injury attorneys are watching with interest the long-awaited jury trial in a lawsuit against the city and a high school chemistry teacher for injuries allegedly sustained in a lab experiment gone horribly awry.

The victim, a 16-year-old boy at the time, was allegedly engulfed in a fireball that erupted during a reportedly potentially-dangerous experiment according to witnesses. According to the lawsuit, the “Rainbow Experiment” was performed in an unvented lab, where no students were wearing recommended protective gear. Further, the suit alleges that the high school never passed safety videos it received to its teachers “warning that the rainbow demonstration posed a risk of severe injuries if performed”. 

The fireball erupted when the teacher reportedly “opened a jug of methyl”, releasing potentially flammable vapors that ignited--resulting in the victim “suffering third-degree burns on 30% of his body, including to his head, face, neck, torso and hands” leaving him with disfiguring scars and physical and psychological damages.
