The Tiger Woods Accident

Like many people, When I heard the news about Tiger Woods' car accident, I was saddened. Not because of who he was as a person (because let's face it, he has his flaws), but like Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant, he was a nice looking guy with a winning smile, competitive as one could be, and he rewarded the fans rooting for him ... by doing the impossible and finding ways to win.

Who is responsible for icy sidewalk falls?

A record-breaking winter storm slammed New York City recently, shutting down airports and leaving more than 17 inches of snow in Central Park. Residents and business owners scrambled to dig out from the storm that resulted in a number of deaths in accidents across the state.

As a result, many injured parties never attempt to call a lawyer to find out if they can sue someone for injuries they sustained on the job and they lose the opportunity.

Heavy snow and wind cause 565-foot crane to fall in Manhattan

WHY A PLAINTIFF'S ATTORNEY WOULD TAKE THE "GORILLA GLUE IN THE HAIR" CASE

When I first read about Louisiana resident, Tessica Brown spraying Gorilla Spray Adhesive on her hair, my first instinct was to say "unbelievable". But then a friend, making conversation, asked me, as a lawyer specializing in accident and injuries matters in New York, would I pursue her case if she called. That prompted me to do some research and I concluded that if this happened in New York, I would. Yes, those against tort reform will immediately object and say "those darn lawyers will sue anyone to make a buck", but let me explain my analysis.
