Recently, allegations of daycare negligence made the news regarding a Westchester daycare center where a couple claims their toddler son’s fingertip was severed and the daycare allegedly failed to notify them of the severity of the injury or call 911.

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?

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.

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.

Removing a Healthy Organ in Error


Can I sue for malpractice if a surgeon mistakenly removes a healthy organ?

Skilled New York medical malpractice attorneys need to know their way not only around the legal aspects of the case but must also navigate the often-complex terminology and best practices of the medical profession in proving their case.

That’s because succeeding in a medical malpractice lawsuit requires clearly showing that the doctor, hospital, and/or other medical personnel deviated from the accepted standards of medical care and that such deviation caused the victim’s injuries.

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.

Several members of one family were in the limousine including four sisters and three of their husbands. The limousine was reportedly on the way to a birthday party for one of the sisters when it ran down a steep hill and off the road hitting two pedestrians and “slamming into a shallow creek bed” immediately killing all involved.
