Federal court decides if insurer must cover malpractice lawsuit

Insurance companies offer their products to protect people in the event of unforeseen circumstances. New York consumers purchase insurance because they can't predict the future, and insurance companies assume the risk for them. However, it would not be a fair risk to the insurance provider if the client already knew trouble was on the way and didn't say anything before purchasing insurance. In fact, one insurance company in another state has filed a complaint in federal court because of just such a situation.

Nurses facing more medical malpractice lawsuits

When people in New York think of medical malpractice, their first thought may be of doctors, especially surgeons. While the media may emphasize the frequency of physicians, plastic surgeons and anesthesiologists who are accused of errors and oversights that cause injury to their patients, another group of medical professionals is also at risk of such claims. The number of nurses accused of medical malpractice is climbing.

Video assists with truck accident defense

Most every New York truck driver understands the reputation truckers have among drivers of smaller vehicles. Often seen as the bullies of the highway, tractor-trailers are quick to catch blame for accidents, especially if there are injuries or fatalities involved. Trucks are an easy target, with their size and weight contributing to the damages that may result. However, fleet owners and managers are looking to technology to help them with truck accident defense.

A New York accident may involve in uninsured motorist

Those who drive in New York know that it is no walk in the park. Local drivers do not need studies and statistics to know how dangerous and frustrating it can be to try to reach one's destination by car. However, this commute may be even more frightening when a motorist discovers that the driver responsible for his or her accident is an uninsured motorist.
