When individuals in New York suffer from an ailment, it is common for them to seek medical assistance. Medical professionals will work to determine the cause of their symptoms and might address them with medical interventions such as medication. When a doctor fails to prescribe the appropriate medicine or fails to provide proper instructions, medication errors could occur. This could cause worsened medical conditions or new medical problems, resulting in serious injuries to the patient.

New York motorcyclist injured by allegedly drunk driver

Like anyone else on New York roadways, motorcyclists are endangered by drunk drivers.

Pedestrian accident kills three men stopped along the highway

A fiery accident along Interstate 287 in late June resulted in the deaths of three men who were stopped on the shoulder of the highway.

The three men were standing beside the truck when they were hit by a tractor-trailer and were pronounced dead the scene.
