Insurance company may not cover work-related accidents

It is not uncommon for those who purchase insurance coverage in New York to be shocked when a claim on the policy is denied. Many think the insurance company is acting in bad faith or is somehow deceiving them, but often, the truth is simply that the customer did not read the policy or ask important questions when purchasing the coverage. Customers may think they can save money on a policy by keeping information from the insurer, or they may simply fail to understand the exclusions in their policies.

Insurance company may deny claims when applicants lie

Telling a white lie every now and then is something most everyone does. After all, New York may not be a very pleasant place to live if everyone told the harsh truth. Nevertheless, there are certain circumstances under which one should always be entirely truthful. One of those is when dealing with an insurance company. Customers may not realize the importance of being entirely truthful if they expect their claims to be covered.

Patients want doctors to speak honestly about medical errors

Medical errors are a great concern, and some studies show that the rate of such incidents may be on the rise. While many mistakes are caught and corrected quickly before harm is done, some patients suffer terrible injuries or even lose their lives from problems following a medical procedure. In some cases, the injury could have been prevented through proper protocol, but in many situations, New York doctors could not have foreseen the complications. However, a new study shows that injured patients have very simple demands following such mistakes.

Collision warning sensors may prevent truck accidents

There is no denying that tractor-trailers are involved in many accidents each year and that those accidents often result in catastrophic injuries. In fact, in 2015, over 4,000 people died in accidents with large trucks, and more than 116,000 people suffered injuries, according to a recent AAA report. However, the agency's Foundation for Traffic Safety also predicts that many future casualties can be averted if more trucks are equipped with collision warning sensors and other safety technologies.

Bill seeks insurance company discount for dash cams

Law enforcement agencies have long known the benefits of dashboard cameras. Cameras record interaction between officers and citizens and provide evidence of violations on the part of the citizen as well as police. However, more than one car insurance company overseas recently began offering discounts to customers who install dash cams in their cars. Lawmakers in New York want to see this happen in the United States.
