Every insurance and self-insured company needs legal assistance

Hundreds of thousands of car accidents happen here in New York every year, and that does not even include New York City. That is a lot of claims for an insurance company or a self-insured company to handle. Some of those claims might go smoothly, but a significant portion will not.

The effects of medication can affect truck accident litigation

Many New York residents take medications for both chronic and acute ailments. Truck drivers are no exception, but unlike people who work in other industries, truckers need to be particularly careful with how their medications affect them because they need to remain vigilant behind the wheel. Truck accident litigation could involve an assessment of whether the medication was a factor in the crash.

Lab technicians and medical malpractice defense

When a New York resident is seriously injured -- or loses a loved one -- to an alleged mistake made by a doctor, nurse or other hospital personnel, they often file claims against anyone who might have anything to do with the diagnosis and/or treatment. This often includes lab technicians, which means that they might be drawn into a lawsuit as well. If you are a lab tech and have been drawn into such a claim, you need to explore your medical malpractice defense options.

Resolution of claims in car vs. tavern crash could be complex

Recently, a car crashed into a tavern here in New York. Four people were injured, including the driver and passenger in the car. The tavern sustained heavy damage as well. The resolution of claims involved in this car accident could be complex.

Should you take advantage of that zero-percent interest offer?

If you are like millions of Americans, you probably shell out more money on interest payments each month than you would care to admit. According to Forbes, the average American household currently has more than $15,000 in credit card debt, and citizens are paying interest on that debt at an average rate of about 13.49 percent. If you are among the many Americans who are only able to make minimum payments on their credit cards each month, you may find you are essentially only paying down the interest and that your actual credit card balance is not getting any smaller over time.

Insurance defense in premises liability claims

Whether you are the manager or owner of a business here in New York, you have a duty to the people who come onto your property to keep it safe. Even when you follow all state and federal laws regarding upkeep and maintenance of your property, that does not mean that accidents will not happen. It is when those accidents occur that you will need a strong insurance defense in connection with any premises liability claims that might be filed.
