The act of crossing the street at an intersection in the city should be safe for all to do; however, that is not always the case on the busy streets of New York, unfortunately. A fatal accident recently took the life of an elderly woman. The 77-year-old was tragically killed as she walked across the city street at an intersection in Brooklyn, New York.
Putting your life or the life of a loved one in the hands of a medical professional comes with a certain assurance that the professional involved will use reasonable standards of care. Despite those standards of care, situations arise where a medical professional in New York acts recklessly, carelessly or with negligence, causing the injury or death of a loved one. This is called medical malpractice and those who become the victim of medical malpractice should understand the scope of the problem and what kind of scenarios may warrant legal action.
The aftermath of being involved in a car accident can be confusing and overwhelming as the reality of what has happened may take time to settle in, especially if the accident was in no way your fault. Despite the shock and confusion, anyone involved in a car accident on the streets or highways of New York should be aware of what actions to take immediately afterwards. If proper actions are taken by victims, it can be easier to pursue a personal injury case against a driver who may be liable for the car accident.
