What are surgical never events and how can they affect you?

Like others in New York, you may have, at one point or another, needed surgery to repair internal damage or treat a medical condition, among other reasons. When undergoing such procedures, you, and other patients, put your life and wellbeing in the hands of your medical provider. All too often, however, surgical errors occur that could be prevented.

FMCSA rule bans cellphone use by truckers

As people in New York, and elsewhere, are likely aware, sharing the road with large commercial trucks can be dangerous. The risk of being involved in a trucking accident may be increased when truckers are using their cellphones, or are otherwise distracted. Often times, it is the drivers and passengers of other vehicles who are seriously injured or killed in such collisions. In an effort to reduce distraction-related truck crashes, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration published rules, which prohibit truck drivers from using hand-held cellphones while driving.

Slip and fall accidents on New York sidewalks

Inclement weather in New York City, and throughout the state, may make the sidewalks a dangerous place for you, and others. This is particularly true during the winter months when rain, sleet and snow can make the sidewalks slick and slippery, which may lead to slip-and-fall accidents. At The Klein Law Group, P.C., we are frequently asked who is responsible when a person falls and injures him or herself on a sidewalk. As such, this post will provide an overview of the city’s sidewalk rules.
