Is playing Russian roulette negligent, reckless, or intentional behavior?


When New York police brutality and misconduct attorneys get called with inquiries on whether they have a case, it’s often stemming from a police officer’s alleged brutality or misconduct against them or one of their loved ones.

But a recent incident allegedly involving a game of Russian roulette among three St. Louis Police officers could result in a wrongful death lawsuit in addition to the criminal charges already filed.

Is the misdiagnosis of cancer medical malpractice?


Imagine being told by a doctor or hospital that you likely had kidney cancer and needed to have both of your kidneys removed because of it. In addition to mentally processing the life-threatening cancer diagnosis, imagine the end result of the surgery would mean four hours of dialysis three days a week for the rest of your life--unless a kidney transplant could be obtained. 

The kidneys remove toxins and regulate potassium levels in the body among other things. Dialysis is needed when kidneys are absent or not functioning optimally. It’s reportedly time-consuming, uncomfortable, and life-altering.

Are all accidents grounds for a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit?


Some people love going out on New Year’s Eve. Others stay in, many preferring the safety of being home instead of out on the roads. After all, the holiday is known for widespread excessive drinking and celebrations that run into the wee hours of New Year’s morning--with an uptick in New York automobile accidents often caused by drunk or distracted driving.

As if to jinx things, only three days after New York Mayor Bill DeBlasio announced that New York City was “on pace to see its fifth year of declining traffic-related fatalities” what was likely the first New York City bicycle accident death of the New Year happened merely hours after midnight.

Reportedly, a 26-year-old man who’d been riding on an e-bike was found unconscious on a Brooklyn roadway.

Can I sue for psychological or emotion harm without physical injuries?


New York City personal injury lawsuits do not always arise from the victim receiving physical injuries as a result of the actions of somebody else. Sometimes, personal injury lawsuits are based on a victim’s psychological or emotional pain and suffering allegedly suffered as a result of the negligent, reckless, or intentional actions – – or in actions – – of another person or entity.


The allegations in a recent New York City lawsuit against a hospital provide a perfect example.

Can I sue for emotional distress over someone’s unflattering use of my image?


New York personal injury attorneys know that personal injury lawsuits don’t always come from physical injuries. They can also arise from psychological pain instead. 

Recently, a young model from Brooklyn sued the Division of Human Rights after learning it used a stock photo of her in newspaper spots for an HIV public health campaign. The campaign reportedly featured her face and the words “I am positive” and “I have rights”.

What happens if police administer Narcan unnecessarily or improperly?


More often than not, when police brutality cases hit the headlines, they involve allegedly unjustified beatings, shootings, or other potentially overreaching physical altercations between the public and the police. 


But with the current opioid crisis escalating, and the advent of Narcan, a new area of alleged police misconduct is emerging. Narcan is a drug that medical professionals and more recently police officers, can administer in suspected overdose cases to reverse the overdose and potentially save a person’s life.

Can I sue for damages over a botched circumcision?


While some may call it the unkindest of cuts, countless parents in America opt to have their baby boys circumcised before leaving the hospital while still others of the Jewish faith have the procedure done in a religious ceremony after the infant is discharged. But despite being considered routine by many, the procedure is not without risk. And when the delicate procedure goes wrong, it can go horribly wrong and lead to a personal injury lawsuit.

Sorting Out Liability After a College Party Goes Wrong


How do you determine liability after a college party accident?

 

Parents are not the only ones who worry about children they send off to college. New York personal injury attorneys worry, too, because they see some frightening cases.

While the majority of fraternity- or sorority-related accidents or deaths that make the headlines stem from hazing incidents, huge parties can apparently result in multiple casualties, too.
