4 common bankruptcy myths debunked

Being in debt is not pleasant, especially if you have suffered through countless sleepless nights because of it. It is not easy trying to figure out which bills you can put off this month so you can pay your mortgage. You might also feel worried about your vehicle being repossessed. Bankruptcy is not suitable for everyone; however, it could be the solution to your financial troubles. 

Car accident defense in lawsuit more difficult after conviction

Defending a driver or an insurance company in a lawsuit following a traffic accident can be a complex matter, especially if the accident results in serious injuries. A defense team must conduct a thorough investigation, interview witnesses and review any evidence collected by police. The involvement of serous or fatal injuries means the driver police have deemed responsible will need an aggressive strategy for the most positive outcome. One New York man may be seeking car accident defense following a recent accident.

Collision warning sensors may have prevented bus crash

Commercial vehicles do not operate with the same ease as smaller vehicles on the highway. Those that transport people, such as buses, require special licensing and training for drivers. In addition, due to the size of their vehicles, commercial drivers may need to use special equipment, such as collision warning sensors, to assist them in navigating. The driver of a charter bus carrying New York high school students recently learned this lesson the hard way.

Insurance company may challenge trespasser claims of injury

The owner of New York property, whether residential or commercial, carries an important duty to ensure visitors are not harmed. A homeowner may take certain steps to clear tripping hazards from hallways or repair the broken latch on the fence surrounding a pool. A business owner may have a checklist or protocol for cleaning and surveying the premises for anything that might endanger a customer or vendor. When accidents happen, property owners rely on their insurance company to assist them in paying for the damage. However, who is liable when an intruder is injured on someone's property?

Physicians for high-risk patients face malpractice claims

When undergoing any medical procedure, there is an understandable risk that may increase based on a patient's individual circumstances. Some conditions, such as smoking, heart disease or blood clotting ailments may create an added level of difficulty for physicians treating those patients. One well-known specialist is facing several medical malpractice lawsuits from patients among his very high-risk clientele.
