How speeding leads to accidents

Speed limits are nothing new on New York roadways and neither are drivers who do not observe those speed limits. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 9,262 people were killed in speed-related accidents in the country in 2014. Speeding is generally defined as driving faster than the posted speed limit, but it also includes driving faster than road conditions allow for, which could mean the actual condition of the road or the condition of the road due to weather events. It is a dangerous and illegal action that many people have no trouble doing.

Doing your estate planning now helps give you peace of mind

A lot of people avoid sitting down to discuss their last will or estate plan. Some people may find it morbid to think about and plan for their own death, but doing so empowers you and protects the people you love. You shouldn't wait until retirement age or later to handle these important decisions.

Borrowed car accident liability

Many people let others drive their vehicles in New York. Whether it is a family member or a friend, most people do not hesitate when someone asks to borrow their vehicle to run a quick errand or to go somewhere for the day. However, things can get complicated if the person borrowing a vehicle gets into an accident. It then becomes a situation where everyone wants to know who is responsible for damages.

Is negligence required to prove medical malpractice?

Negligence is the backbone of any medical malpractice suit in New York. Negligence simply means you did not use reasonable care to ensure something was done properly. When it comes to medical malpractice, the U.S. National Library of Medicine notes that there are certain elements that must be proven with negligence being the underlying point. These elements include the incident resulted in damages of some kind to you, the incident was caused by a person who had a professional duty to provide you with care, and due to the person not honoring this duty, you suffered an injury.

What is a guardianship?

When it comes to planning what will happen after you pass away, it is also important to consider who will help you if you become unable to make important decisions while you are still alive. Your estate plan in New York can also include guidance on establishing a guardianship, or conservatorship, to handle your affairs if you become incapacitated.
