Car accidents can have devastating results for all involved

Early morning traffic in New York can be difficult for even the most alert driver to navigate. In addition to heavy traffic, many drivers are changing lanes and passing other drivers in attempts to get to their destinations as soon as possible. Traffic becomes even more challenging when an impaired driver joins the morning commute, and the possibility for car accidents becomes even greater.

Another Construction Worker Dies on the Job

A 43-year-old construction worker was recently killed while working at a downtown Brooklyn construction site when a piece of machinery malfunctioned. Paul Kennedy of the Bronx's Woodlawn section had stepped out of the operating booth of a pile-drilling crane when a steel shackle broke off and fell at least 60 feet to strike him in the head. Even though some reports said that Kennedy wore a helmet, the blow left him unconscious and he was eventually pronounced dead at the scene.

Best Buy fined $3.8 million for product liability concerns

When a product that is already available to the consumer is found to be defective, a product recall is generally issued. This is done to protect the consumer and the company as well. Companies can be held responsible if their product causes harm to the consumer or his or her property. In New York, failure to issue the recall can cause product liability issues for the company.

Lead paint in your home?

Lead is an extremely toxic metal that can cause a wide range of health issues in the young and old alike. Nonetheless, it is particularly lethal for children under six years of age. It's also hazardous for pregnant mothers who can pass lead on to their babies, possibly causing premature birth, low birth weight, mental development issues and nerve damage. It can be accidently ingested by a child, inhaled in dust or even absorbed through the skin. Once in the bloodstream it gets distributed throughout the body in the same way healthy minerals like iron and calcium are, often damaging red blood cells' ability to carry oxygen to the body's organs.

Ice cream recalled due to product liability concerns

When a company produces a food item and sells it to a consumer, that company has an obligation to the consumer. The company is responsible for producing a product that is free of harmful contaminants. When a citizen of the state of New York purchases a food item, he or she is typically concerned about nutrition and taste rather than product liability issues.
