Malpractice May Occur No Matter How Experienced a Doctor May Be


Q: Is choosing the most experienced doctor for my surgery the safest choice?

No one wants to have surgery. But when it’s necessary, most people seek out the best surgeon to handle their procedure. They ask friends for recommendations and read reviews in search of a specialist-- maybe even the head of the department. Surely that’s the best person for the job, right?

According to some unhappy patients, choosing the head of orthopedic surgery could come back to bite you in the… hip. Or the knee.

Bronx Teen in Hot Water Over Scalding Injury


Q: Can a minor be arrested for assault?

Most teenage girl sleepovers involve a limited degree of usually innocent pranking. A game of “truth or dare”, some prank phone calls, or maybe a magic marker mustache on the first girl to fall asleep. Certainly nothing that might be grounds for a personal injury lawsuit.

High School Football Practice: Negligence in the End Zone?


Q: Are players’ deaths during rigorous pre-season training sessions grounds for a wrongful death lawsuit?

Americans love their sports, from baseball and hotdogs in the summer to football and chili in the fall. But the training season for each high school sport begins weeks or even months earlier which, in the case of football, means wannabe superstars hit the field for conditioning drills during the hottest weeks of the year.

This summer, an upcoming high school freshman on an academic scholarship to a private Catholic school in the Bronx died during his second pre-season work-out with the junior varsity football team.

Was this a wrongful death?

Relatives have reportedly questioned whether "heat and negligence" caused the boy’s death. During a running drill the boy allegedly "told coaches he was exhausted but was told to run one more lap.

Bronx Motorcycle Accident Claims Motorcycle Club Co-Founder


Q: Is every death a wrongful death?

There is something particularly tragic, and also ironic, in hearing of a biker dying in a motorcycle accident while he was reportedly returning home from a fallen fellow biker's memorial. Especially when the biker was "very involved in community service and was very loved by everyone".

The Bronx motorcycle accident occurred about 2:00 am when the victim-- who was reportedly traveling home from the memorial along with "approximately 20" members of the Tru 31 Motorcycle Club he co-founded-- rear-ended a sedan and was sent into a guardrail.

Q: Should I sue or accept an insurance company’s settlement offer?

A Bronx car accident on a sunny and dry afternoon recently left a path of devastation in its wake along a stretch of busy roadway lined with cars and pedestrians.

A 65-year-old woman in an SUV reportedly "barreled down" the road literally slamming into several “parked cars and other vehicles” before her own vehicle flipped over and landed on its side. Neighborhood video surveillance recordings captured the incident, which claimed the life of the woman.

Police Brutality in New York and the Emotionally Disturbed


Q: Are NYPD officers properly-trained to handle people with mental illnesses?

Police brutality and misconduct cases are seemingly commonplace in New York City. Part of what’s driving the numbers up may be the NYPD's apparent failure to provide crisis intervention training to all frontline officers on how to handle the emotionally disturbed or mentally ill people they encounter on a call. If the number of people suffering from mental health issues is also increasing, this combination could be a recipe for recurrent disaster.

New York City Bus Accident Conspiracy Allegations Against MTA


Q: Does the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (“MTA) have secret mobile crash clean-up crews?

A New York City personal injury attorney convincingly argued to a jury that there was a "conspiracy to hide or skew the evidence" in the post-accident investigation of an MTA bus accident that caused "disabling injuries" to a passenger.

The theory presented was like something right off the silver screen. "The MTA has mobile crash squads around the city that swoop down on the scenes of bus collisions and orchestrate cover ups" according to the plaintiff’s allegations.
