New York City Teen’s “Wild Rampage” Leaves Pedestrian Injured


Q: Are criminal charges against a driver a prerequisite to a personal injury lawsuit?

It's tough to be a teen these days. It's even tougher to cross paths with a teen whose apparent angst shifted into overdrive, and caused a New York City car accident with a pedestrian jogger.

Chemistry Class “Fireball” Injures Four in Bronx High School


Q: Do schools have a duty to provide protective gear to students in lab classes?

Holy Bunsen burner!

A Chemistry experiment allegedly demonstrating how an atom goes from ground state to excited state got a little bit too exciting in one all-girls Bronx Catholic high school recently--raising questions as to whether a personal injury lawsuit related to the mishap may be forthcoming.

When the Chemistry class experiment went awry on the day before Thanksgiving, four sophomores-- who were allegedly not wearing protective gear--were injured by the resulting "large fireball".

Reportedly, the students were taken to the hospital, "three with burns, the fourth with respiratory-related issues" after the flame in the experiment… which allegedly did not involve hazardous materials…"got too large".

Homeless “Daredevil” Killed by Garbage Truck in Bronx


Q: Are all fatal pedestrian accidents automatically the fault of the driver?

Death After Police Taser Incident Stuns Bronx Victim’s Family


Q: Is a stun gun death a wrongful death?

Third time's a harm.

That's apparently the thinking behind a Bronx wrongful death lawsuit that a grieving sister says the family is bringing against the NYPD and the police officer who allegedly used a stun gun to subdue her brother, who then died from cardiac arrest.

It's common for personal injury or wrongful death cases stemming from altercations between civilians and police officers to result in allegations of police brutality or police misconduct.

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?

Bronx Teen in Hot Water Over Scalding Injury

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.
