Taking Legal Action Against the Church for Personal Injury


Q: Can a priest, parish, or archdiocese be sued for personal injury?

When we think about a personal injury lawsuit against a priest, parish, and the Archdiocese, the first thought that comes to mind are lawsuits regarding sexual abuse as they’ve consistently made national headlines frequently over the past couple decades.

But priests can find themselves in hot water under other circumstances as one man of the cloth—and his parish and archdiocese—recently experienced. Using the wrong words in certain situations may cause psychological issues.

Lawsuits and Hazing


Q: Is a college liable for fraternity hazing deaths or injuries?

Sending a child off to college is a source of both great pride and a bit of fear for many parents – especially if the child is living on campus in a distant state.

In addition to the usual worries about whether the child will make friends, whether the school is the right “fit”, and whether they can handle the course load academically, parents often worry if their child is safe at school. Colleges are held to high standards when it comes to protecting the students entrusted to their care. Despite this, some college students will find themselves victims of the negligent, reckless, or intentional actions of another in a

Q: Can I sue after a traumatic brain injury due to a consumer product?

According to a study published in Brain Injury, a medical journal, over 4 million children in America sustained traumatic brain injuries, or “TBIs” from consumer products. 

The study found that “products like beds, flooring and sports items” were largely to blame for most of the injuries. In addition, it found that younger children were more often injured by home furnishing products (like beds and flooring) while older kids’ TBIs were often linked to sports activities.

New York Nursing Home Elder Abuse Lawsuits


Q: Are elder abuse cases rising?


They call them the “Golden Years”, but for those facing life in a nursing home or similar long-term care facility, they may be anything but golden. Virtually no one dreams of spending their sunset years in an institutional setting. But for those without spouses or grown children or other family or friends to care for them—or those with special medical needs or psychological issues that require substantial daily care or attention—nursing home care may be unavoidable.

While the vast majority of facilities are staffed with dedicated professionals who provide quality and compassionate care for the elderly or disabled, the sad reality is that many residents in nursing homes and long-term care facilities become victims of elder abuse. And the numbers are rising.

NYC High School Science Lab Burn Injury Suit


Q: Is the City Responsible for Injuries in Public High School Science Experiments?

New York City personal injury attorneys are watching with interest the long-awaited jury trial in a lawsuit against the city and a high school chemistry teacher for injuries allegedly sustained in a lab experiment gone horribly awry.

The victim, a 16-year-old boy at the time, was allegedly engulfed in a fireball that erupted during a reportedly potentially-dangerous experiment according to witnesses. According to the lawsuit, the “Rainbow Experiment” was performed in an unvented lab, where no students were wearing recommended protective gear. Further, the suit alleges that the high school never passed safety videos it received to its teachers “warning that the rainbow demonstration posed a risk of severe injuries if performed”. 

The fireball erupted when the teacher reportedly “opened a jug of methyl”, releasing potentially flammable vapors that ignited--resulting in the victim “suffering third-degree burns on 30% of his body, including to his head, face, neck, torso and hands” leaving him with disfiguring scars and physical and psychological damages.
