The role of negligence in a personal injury claim

Personal injury accidents happen each day all across the city of New York. Many of these incidents are caused by the individuals who suffer harm. However, others involve dangerous conditions created by parties who do not fulfill their duties of care to other individuals.

The consequences of surgical errors can be catastrophic

Medical malpractice is the area of personal injury law that concerns mistakes and errors committed by doctors and other medical professionals. It is an unfortunate truth that many New Yorkers suffer harm at the hands of practitioners who are charged with helping their patients improve their health. One of the most common situations where medical malpractice occurs is during surgery, and this post will briefly address some of the ways that mistakes may happen on the operating table.

Spinal injuries and their long-term consequences

The spinal cord is an integral part of the nervous system. It runs through the back body of an individual and is contained in the spinal column. The spinal cord transmits information from the brain to the rest of the body so that it can move, react and fully function.

Slip and fall accidents can be serious for victims

Falls are a common cause of injuries for New Yorkers. While many of the trips and slips that individuals suffer are self-inflicted, others result when property owners fail to maintain their premises and individuals who come upon their land are hurt. When individuals are harmed on other people's property, they may have rights to sue for the recovery of their damages.

Neck and back injuries are common after car accidents

The shock of a car accident can leave a New York driver emotionally rattled and physically sore. As they begin to process what happened to them, they may discover that they have worse injuries than they initially believed. There are many different types of injuries that individuals can suffer when they are involved in motor vehicle accidents, but neck and back injuries can be particularly common and painful.

Make good decisions after a personal injury accident

Not long ago, this blog discussed a proposed plan by the Social Security Administration to use social media to monitor the disabilities of program applicants and recipients. In essence, if the program was implemented the Social Security Administration could deny an applicant benefits if the organization found pictures or information on the applicant's Facebook or Instagram feed that countered their application claims. This proposal is not currently in use, but its considerations should raise questions for everyone who uses social media in their daily life.

Traumatic brain injuries from motor vehicle accidents

An injury to the brain can have serious repercussions on the way that a victim's body works and responds to stimuli. When a New York resident hits their head or suffers an impact to it in a motor vehicle accident, they can be left with a range of serious and complicated medical issues. These issues are the side effects of traumatic brain injuries, the topic of this informational post.

What to do when a settlement offer arrives after an accident

In the wake of an auto accident, a New York resident may rightfully prioritize the management of their injuries and the improvement of their health. They may take time off from their jobs and seek the help of others to accomplish the tasks they are limited in performing due to their accident-related harm. Only after they have begun to heal may they consider the actions they may wish to take against the party or parties that caused them harm.

What are my rights if a distracted driver hits me?

Distracted driving is a major problem on New York roads, but it affects communities all throughout the United States. It can take on many different forms, though most people just think of cell phone use as the cause of it. While texting, making calls, and using social media apps while driving are all dangerous distractions, other activities also pull drivers' attentions away from the roads. Eating, drinking, talking to passengers, grooming, and looking at maps are all causes of distracted driving accidents as well.

Common examples of medical malpractice

Going to the doctor is never much fun but New York residents keep their appointments with their physicians because maintaining their health is a key component to feeling good and protecting their longevity. It is often the case that a consultation with a doctor will provide a person with valuable information on how to improve their health and continue to lead the strongest lifestyle possible. However, when doctors fail to act in accordance with their duties of care and commit negligence, patients can suffer damaging medical malpractice events.
