Motor Vehicle Accidents
The roads of New York are dangerous. They are congested, hazardous, and filled with aggressive drivers. The conditions of our roads can be perilous as well. Improper maintenance put drivers, cyclists, bikers, passengers, and pedestrians at risk of accidents. If you have been in a motor vehicle accident, you need to consider your future. Some motor vehicle accidents can cause serious injury. Especially those involving buses and trucks, accidents can lead to catastrophic results, including death.
Slip and Fall Accidents
A slip and fall accident can be a serious ordeal. Under certain conditions, the surfaces you navigate can be treacherous and lead to injuries that can impact your life for years. Walking on sidewalks and through parking lots can be dangerous if you slip on snow or ice or trip on uneven, cracked pavement. If the person responsible knew or should have known about the condition and didn’t fix the issue within a reasonable amount of time, you could recover damages if you were seriously injured.
People who work industrial and construction jobs face varying degrees of danger while performing their duties. Even office jobs come with risks to the health of employees. When a person is injured in a workplace accident, there are several legal options to explore. First and foremost, whether it is your employer’s fault or not, workers’ compensation will cover your medical bills and help you pay for lost wages, as long as the injury was not on purpose or because of misconduct. Workers’ compensation also protects the employer from lawsuits based on the injuries sustained.
A dog is a wonderful addition to the family. Dogs are loyal, loving, and protective. When a dog is poorly trained, it can lead to disaster. They can become unruly, dangerous beasts with the tendency to be unpredictable. When a dog becomes a hazard, it is the responsibility of the owner to make sure they take precautions that serve the safety of the public to avoid dog bites other people. Dangerous dogs in public are a problem. If an owner knows that the dog is a danger, he or she should be sure to secure the dog on a leash, keep the dog away from others, and in some cases, muzzle the dog if brought to a busy and bustling place.
When a consumer buys a product, they hope that the company has taken care and concern to ensure that they offer a quality product to the masses. We buy cars, household products, and industrial products with the idea that we are investing our money in a company that believes in excellence. When regular consumers buy a car or household product, they often put the safety of their family in the hands of the company they bought from or the manufacturer who made the product. When industrial workers buy safety equipment and other products for work, they are even more dependent on the quality of the product, otherwise, you may be in need of a product liability attorney.
When the loss of a loved one was because of another person’s actions or neglect, the family may have a claim for wrongful death.

We understand this time is difficult but the loss of your loved one can burden you with lost wages, funeral expenses, and other unforeseen costs. You may be entitled to damages that can help you and your family relieve the stress of the future while you heal in the present.
