After the accident: What is PTSD and how to handle it

It was only a quick ride to the grocery store. You headed home and sailed through a green light. Unfortunately, another driver sped through a red light and t-boned your car. You saw the lights blaring, remember the ambulance ride and now find yourself in the hospital. What just happened?

When you stand up to police misconduct, you fight for all of us

Law enforcement personnel have some of the most difficult jobs in the country. Their sacrifice is not to be taken for granted or minimized. Unfortunately, many people still experience police misconduct every day. Victims of police misconduct must choose carefully how to pursue justice when they suffer unfairly at the hands of those who are sworn to protect and serve.

New York Tugboat Crash Claimed Three Crewmember's Lives

On March 12, 2016 a tugboat escorting a crane from Albany to Jersey City, collided with a stationary construction barge located near the Tappan Zee Bridge. The tugboat, named The Specialist, was manned by three crewmembers, all of whom perished in the incident. After hitting the barge, the tugboat capsized and sank to the bottom of the Hudson River.

New York Wrongful Death Lawsuit Ongoing

In the ongoing case of a teacher killed after a New York Police Department (NYPD) officer drove into him, the NYPD is refusing to release records pertaining to the incident. The event happened on July 6, 2013 at the intersection of Broadway and Hooper Street in Brooklyn. The 61-year-old was crossing the street when he was struck by a marked police van and thrown onto the pavement. He later died from severe head injuries, and his family is currently suing the NYPD, New York City, and the officer who was driving.

Dangers of Older Drivers

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety estimated in 2013 that there were approximately 23.6 million drivers age 70 and above in the United States. With age comes health complications, such as dementia, loss of vision, loss of hearing, and longer response time. These declines in health can create a dangerous situation for the older driver, as well as all other drivers on the road.
