With the heavy foot traffic of New York City, it is no surprise that pedestrian accidents are a common occurrence. Many people do not know what to do after they've been injured in a pedestrian accident. After seeking medical attention if necessary, victims can write down as many details about the accident as they can. Accident victims can note their injuries, wage losses, and other losses they may have suffered because of the accident. If other people were involved in the accident, they may also take note of the conversations they have had with those other individuals.
When a person is out and about in Staten Island, property owners have a duty to ensure that their structures cause no harm to passersby. Construction companies and businesses also have a responsibility to protect the public from dangerous property conditions. However, 2015 is turning into a dangerous year when it comes to construction accidents.
When New Yorkers need medical assistance, they rely on doctors and nurses who have received extensive education and training. One would think that individuals possessing such knowledge and skills would be able to adequately assess, diagnose, and treat most medical conditions. Tragically, though, some medical professionals make mistakes that can leave otherwise unsuspecting patients seriously injured, disabled, or even dead.
