Slip and fall accidents can take place essentially anywhere, but one of the most common locations for them are apartment complexes. These multi-unit structures provide homes for many people and pose significant hazards for residents and visitors. In some instances, the landlord can be held liable, which means that you can pursue a legal case for damages.
After a car accident, there are numerous damages to calculate, such as the costs of your medical bills, the costs to repair your car, and the costs of any property damage that occurred. However, other types of damages can be more challenging to calculate, such as pain and suffering.
Absolutely anyone can be a victim of a slip and fall accident, regardless of age, agility, or athletic ability. Slip and fall accidents commonly take place in the home, on business properties, event venues, and public transportation stations. Furthermore, these accidents could cause severe physical trauma and be the fault of another liable party.
There’s nothing quite like riding a motorcycle through New York City and feeling experiencing the exhilaration of all the sights, sounds, and smells of the city. However, there’s no denying that riding a motorcycle comes with its fair share of risks and that motorcycle accidents are all too common in NYC.
Brooklyn is one of the most walkable places in America, which is great for running errands and commuting to work without the hassle of having a car in the city. However, pedestrians face significant dangers while walking around our borough due to the negligence of drivers who are distracted, reckless, or simply make a mistake.
Taxi cabs are deeply ingrained into New York City culture and a convenient way to get around without having to deal with traffic and parking. However, taxis are certainly not immune to roadway accidents, which often catch both passengers and pedestrians off-guard.
New Yorkers rely upon city buses to get them around the city every day and getting into an accident is the last thing on their minds during a commute. However, MTA buses get into accidents every day and cause innocent riders to suffer from injuries and even death.
Drunk driving is far too common in our society and results in devastating injuries, property damage, and even death in Brooklyn. Since the injuries from drunk driving accidents are often severe and because determining liability can be a complex endeavor, it is important to call a drunk driving accident attorney if you’ve been affected by a drunk driver’s negligence.
We rely upon emergency vehicles, such as ambulances, fire trucks, and police cars, to help us when we’re sick, injured, or in danger. When an emergency vehicle responds to an incident, it must often travel at speeds above the speed limit, weave in and out of traffic, and blow through traffic lights without stopping. While these driving practices may help save the life of a person being transported, they can also put other innocent drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians at risk.
In New York City, not all intersections are created equal, and some are far more accident-prone than others. Unfortunately, many of these problem spots are right here in Brooklyn. A recent Localize Labs study revealed the 20 most dangerous intersections for pedestrians and cyclists, and eight of them were right here in our borough.
