Several pursue truck accident litigation after fatal crashes

When a trucker engages in questionable judgments, the end result may be others suffering the consequences. After a fatal accident, family members often pursue truck accident litigation in an effort to hold others responsible. These serious accidents occur in New York and other locations throughout the country and can result in civil suits against employers.

Man claims he suffered harm from insurance company denial

Many New York employers offer disability as a benefit to their employees. However, there are times that even purportedly valid claims are denied by an insurance company as a matter of policy, for many reasons. As a result of a denial, some claimants file a civil suit in an effort to obtain those benefits.

State takes steps to help doctors and patients by capping awards

In a move that is touted as helping both sides in medical malpractice suits, a state is closer to finalizing a bill that would limit monetary awards. Lawmakers stated that both doctors and patients will ultimately win by reducing the amounts of compensation except in the most appalling circumstances. While many states have applied these limits, New York currently does not have any set caps.

4 common reasons people turn to bankruptcy

Overwhelming debt does not just come to those who are careless with money. Debt grows and expands if you lose a job unexpectedly if a medical condition arises and you cannot pay for treatment, or even because you are seeking a divorce. Filing for bankruptcy is not an irresponsible thing to do but may be the key to a fresh financial start. If any of the following situations apply to you, you may benefit from considering bankruptcy.

It takes a team to help doctors prevent medical malpractice

Medical providers spend years of their lives studying medicine in order to help patients with health care problems. It often requires a coordinated effort to help these doctors and nurses avoid a medical malpractice lawsuit, and to defend them successfully when one is commenced. Though New York medical providers work diligently to ensure good quality care, a mistake can result in all parties suffering harm through either physical injury for patients or monetary damages for providers.
