Seriousness of car-bicycle crash injury not always clear

Collisions between bicyclists and motor vehicles are not rare in New York City. The numbers of cyclists on the streets of the city's boroughs seems to be on an ever-steady incline, which only increases the risk of dangerous encounters. When a person on a bike is hurt due to negligence of another driver, they deserve to know that seeking compensation is their right and that a skilled attorney can help.

Lead poisoning: A hidden hazard for unwary New York renters

How many apartments in New York carry the threat of possible lead exposure to occupants? No one has a solid number. What we do know, because the city recently admitted as much, is that at least 820 young children living in units controlled by the public Housing Authority tested positive for lead in their blood between 2012 and 2016. We also know that the presumption under law is that any building in the city built before 1960 had lead paint, and a major portion of local housing fits that description.

Speed Week Is Here

Two years ago this month, New York saw a record high number of speed-related car accident fatalities. One year later, state officials announced a Speed Week enforcement campaign. Speed Week is a statewide effort to crack down on one of the most widespread forms of unsafe driving. During last year's campaign, police issued at least 21,000 tickets. While not all of those tickets were for speeding, it is usually a safe bet that the majority of traffic enforcement efforts are geared toward stopping this behavior.

Defective Medical Devices In The Limelight

Netflix is now showing a new documentary which might qualify for some as a horror film. The movie, entitled The Bleeding Edge, takes a closer look at the medical device industry. Medical devices can include anything from birth control implants, to knee and hip replacements, to pacemakers. The documentary is not comforting to anyone who has, or is considering getting an implant of any kind to improve their health.
