Car accidents: Officer accused of hit and run striking pedestrian

An officer of the MTA Bridges and Tunnels police has been accused of hit and run after hitting a pedestrian while in his police car. The report claims that the officer drove several miles with his victim in the car and then dumped him alongside a New York highway. The district attorney in Brooklyn claims that the officer refused to help the victim and then tried to hide the entire episode. It is one of the most controversial reports of car accidents to take place in the state.

Construction workers' accidents: Man awarded $200,000 after fall

A man was recently awarded $200,000 after it was determined that the scaffolding that he fell from had been constructed improperly. The jury deliberated only two hours before deciding that one of the defendants was 20 percent responsible for the accident and another defendant was 80 percent responsible for the injuries that the plaintiff suffered. Many similar construction workers' accidents take place in New York every year.

Mother awarded $33.8M after negligence causes baby's brain injury

Imagine this -- a woman is in the final stages of labor. She and her unborn baby are at the mercy of the hospital staff, and the crucial moment is fast approaching. It is almost time for the baby to make his or her entrance into the world... and the doctor leaves the delivery room. That's exactly what happened to one woman in another state, and her baby suffered a brain injury as a result. Although this case was not in New York, similar medical mistakes occur in this state as well. 

OSHA makes new rules to prevent slip-and-fall accidents

According to some reports, many employers may have missed the new slip-and-fall rules that were recently put in place by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, or OSHA. The Walking-Working Surfaces safety standards were updated in order to help prevent the hundreds of deaths and over 5,000 injuries that happen each year. Many of these incidents take place in New York.

Manslaughter charges in construction workers' accidents

A construction company owner has been indicted on charges of manslaughter in the death of one worker. A wall collapse at the site of an excavation not only killed one worker but injured two others who were on the job. According to the District Attorney of Brooklyn, New York, construction workers' accidents such as this are entirely too common as of late.
