Distracted driving puts everyone on the road at risk

Getting behind the wheel of a vehicle or riding as a passenger in one is an act that involves some danger. There is always the risk of a crash or collision, which goes up in certain circumstances. Bad weather, low visibility, clogged roads during rush hour traffic and impaired drivers are just some of the many factors that can increase your risk of a serious collision.

Filing a medical malpractice suit in New York

New York residents probably will be shocked to learn that preventable medical errors are now the third leading cause of death in America, accounting for over 250,000 deaths each year. These alarming statistics appeared in a 2016 report summarizing the conclusions reached by researchers at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

Discussing your inheritance void, of unnecessary contention

While you may not wish to think about your death, your efforts to begin planning your estate before it is too late can save your family a lot of unnecessary strife and confusion after your death. One of the best things you can do is to involve your family in discussions about who will acquire your inheritance. At Goldberg Sager & Associates, we are familiar with the complications that many people in New York face when planning their estate. 

Tour Bus Accidents in New York City Are Quite Common

Every year, millions of people around the country take a sightseeing tour around a new city that he or she is visiting. New York City features many tourist attractions. According to reports, tourism in New York City has continued to steadily grow over the last ten years, however, so has the risk of tourist accidents. While the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) does not have any regulations governing the mandated reporting of tour bus crashes in New York City, these incidents are unfortunately quite common.

VA Conceals Medical Errors

In the United States, medical errors account for the third leading cause of death. According to USA TODAY, the Veterans Affairs hospital system is the nation's largest employer of healthcare workers. A recent ongoing federal lawsuit and investigation into the VA has revealed that Thomas Franchini, a podiatrist, along with other physicians have made dangerous medical errors in multiple cases, but were allowed to resign without any disciplinary action. Furthermore, the VA failed to inform state licensing regulators and patients about their conduct and past performance. This allowed doctors like Thomas Franchini to resign and go into private practice, putting not only veterans but the public at large in danger.

What can cause delays with settling an estate?

Some people in New York are under the impression that having estate plans can help them to speed up the probate process. While it is possible for some estates to be probated without the court’s intervention, it is necessary for probate court to review and approve of certain types of plans and preside over all disputes. Also, people who do not have plans in effect at the time of their deaths must have their assets pass through probate court.
