Soon, everyone will use paperless log systems in their trucks

The public tends to believe that any accident involving an 18-wheeler is the fault of the truck driver. People here in New York and elsewhere look into truck drivers' logs and attempt to disparage their character by claiming that they were fatigued, distracted or otherwise unfit to be driving. This makes paperless log systems even more important since documenting that a trucker was not any of those things when the accident occurred may get easier.

Insurance industry blamed by uninformed consumers

There is no question that insurance law is complex, and insurance policies are often full of intricate details. Laws governing the insurance industry also vary from state to state, further complicating the matter. Unfortunately, many consumers have a simplistic view of insurance coverage, believing that because they pay a premium, anything that goes wrong should be covered. Instead of having a full understanding of the limitations and conditions of their policies when they purchase them, they may discover those limitations only when disaster strikes.

Geico bad faith claims may alter insurance law

Insurance companies are often portrayed as the bad guys when claims are denied. They may be accused of acting in bad faith, and it is common for policyholders to file lawsuits in New York courts against companies that deny their claims. However, insurance law varies from state to state, and one state supreme court is facing a challenge of its bad faith laws.

3 steps you can take to protect your credit during divorce

Divorce not only takes a toll on your emotions but your finances, too. Those co-signed loans and shared accounts that were once a sign of your romance now cause you immense stress. While you will figure out certain financial problems in your divorce agreement, a lot of things can happen before then, particularly regarding your credit.

Declaratory judgment actions taken after suspicious accident

When people own items that are precious or valuable, they tend to insure them. If something happens to an object so that it is lost, damaged or rendered useless, the owner can file a claim to be reimbursed up to the value of the insurance policy. Of course, there are often stipulations and limitations. For example, if someone in New York is suspected of setting fire to his own house, insurance companies may file declaratory judgment actions for the court to determine whether the homeowner has nullified his policy through his actions.

Truck accident defense examines all possibilities

Truckers often get a bad rap, especially when they are involved in accidents with much smaller vehicles. Often, however, the drivers of smaller vehicles simply become impatient sharing the road with trucks that are large, heavy and noisy. It is not unheard of for a New York driver following a truck to act out of exasperation and create a situation that is unsafe. This is one truck accident defense that often proves true.
