Could New York City be liable in a pedestrian accident?

Although traffic fatalities were slightly down, safety statistics took a dip last year for pedestrians and bicyclists in New York City, killing 229 people. Even more individuals across the city’s five boroughs suffered serious, but non-fatal, injuries.

Common winter weather-related injuries

In recent years, winter storms have hit the east coast and covered roadways in deep snow, causing not only difficulties and delay for residents, but dangerous conditions. Around this time last year, a blizzard left the boroughs of Staten Island and the Bronx with 2 1/2 feet of snow. Unfortunately, city plows were unable to clear it for almost two days. Drivers had a difficult time getting around due to the dangerous road conditions, but vehicle fender benders and serious crashes aren't the only weather-related accidents that can cause injury during the winter.

Catastrophic personal injuries require just compensation

Serious personal injuries call for sizable verdicts and settlements. Our founding firm’s membership in the Million Dollar Advocates Forum is no coincidence. A review of some of our Manhattan law firm’s recent verdicts provides a sobering perspective.
