Siblings file civil suit against insurance company for bad faith

Even though many people do not like to contemplate the end of life, that should not preclude them from considering the need for life insurance. A life insurance company provides a valuable commodity for the surviving family members when the policy holder dies.

Physicians urged to use care with EHRs to avoid malpractice claim

The information age has changed many aspects of life -- including health care.

Medical professionals have options when facing malpractice claims

Those who choose to practice medicine provide an invaluable service to others.

Some New York health care providers may currently be facing this difficult situation.

If injury occurs, experienced truck accident defense is important

By its very nature, the trucking industry is fraught with opportunities for disaster. Be it due to an inexperienced driver of a breakdown in the mechanics of the tractor or the trailer, any incident involving a commercial vehicle and a third party can result in a plaintiff filing a personal injury claim against the trucker, the employer, insurance company or all three. New York residents or companies who have faced these circumstances know the importance of experienced truck accident defense professionals.
