Car Accidents--What To Do When Tragedy Strikes


Imagine being involved in a hit-and-run accident caused by a drunk driver.  If that is not bad enough, imagine being the mother who was left in desperation while trying to save her injured son, daughter, and husband from the burning vehicle at the scene of the accident. 

This was the tragic reality of one wife and mother, age 35, who was returning home from a party with her family—a husband of 37, a daughter of 4 years old, and a son of 8 years old.  The family was currently living in Queens and originally from Haiti.

When Standard Hospital Procedures Fail

Imagine going into the hospital as a patient for one health problem, but coming out with a handful of new problems beyond your wildest nightmare.  A woman of only thirty-three years old, went into the hospital for what she thought would be a standard gynecological procedure.  She was released from the hospital with a completely changed life--her legs and the majority of her hearing was gone.  The patient has been discharged from the hospital, but is now unable to take care of herself or her 13-year-old daughter on her own. 

The woman neared death due to a puncture in her colon that occurred during a laparoscopic procedure.

Hit and Run

After running a light and driving an expensive Porsche into two individuals, the culpable driver literally ran away, by foot, from the accident scene.  A person riding a bike, and two others operating vehicles had to be rushed to the hospital.  It was reported that the bicyclist endured a head and shoulder injury.  A pedestrian was also pronounced dead after sustaining severe head injury. 

Apparently, the driver’s vehicle sped across the sidewalk and then collided with a tree before striking the victims.

Dog Bites—Who Is Responsible For Your Harm?

There is a limitation on the time you have to file a legal claim.  It is important to consult an attorney.

Elevator Accidents And Preventable Tragedy

Riding the elevator is a daily ritual for many people who live, party, and work in the sky-high buildings of New York City.  One man, anticipating a New Year’s Eve party in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, died in an elevator accident before he could celebrate the arrival of 2016. 

The man saved a woman when an elevator began falling down the twenty-six floor building.  The woman, a mother, was pushed quickly out of the enclosure, just in time.

When Cancer is Left Untreated - Do You Have Legal Recourse?

A visibly healthy woman of forty-two years received the shock of her life when a doctor reviewed her pathology records from a hospital in New York.  Apparently, "there was evidence of cancer on 10 out of 40 of the slides" that were taken at the hospital. 

A doctor previously removed a fibroid in her uterus, but left the rest of the cancer in her body.  The patient began to experience extreme back pain about two years later because the untreated cancer in her uterus, liver, and back reached stage four.  Even more heart-wrenching, by the time this information was revealed to her by the reviewing doctor, the patient was no longer eligible to sue this hospital for their malpractice under New York law.  The statute of limitations barred her claim.
