What Is a Toxic Tort?


A tort is a civil wrong. It is an injury or loss to a person’s body or health, financial situation, or other interest, and the injury is caused due to the negligent action or inaction of another. The law provides that those who have been the victims of a tortious action can seek compensation for the harm they have sustained as a result of the wrongdoer’s behavior. Usually, compensation comes in the form of financial compensation, but other remedies are available in some tort actions. Now that we have the basics of what a tort actually is, the question may then become, what is a

What Is Negligence?

What Is Product Liability?


Manufacturers and distributors of products owe consumers a duty to take reasonable measures to ensure products are safe for their intended use.

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?

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

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.
