Do I Have a Personal Injury Case?

If you’ve suffered significant harm because of someone else’s obvious carelessness ("negligence" in legalese), this may not be a tough question to answer. But many situations are not so cut-and-dried. If you’re figuring out whether you have a valid personal injury claim—one that would justify going to the time and trouble of filing an insurance claim over the incident or bringing a lawsuit to civil court—there are a few key factors that can help you decide.

Leaking Breast Implants Leave Women Fighting Infections, Insurers

Insurers can deny coverage for treatment related to infections caused by breast implants, causing a budding advocacy movement. “The insurers use the fact that there’s no true medical definition for breast implant illness as an opportunity to try not to pay for it,” said Scot Glasberg, a former president of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Women who have suffered from breast implant illness are asking the FDA for help, but the agency can’t do much when it comes to insurance coverage. Leaking implants can cause a variety of illnesses, but women who need them removed face a series of obstacles from...

New State Rules Face Challenge in Curbing Illegal Dumping

The DEC now requires detailed tracking of construction and demolition debris leaving New York City in the wake of illegal dumping at Roberto Clemente Park.

Any load from...

Superbug Fungus Sickens More Than 300 In New York State

There is concern from the Centers for Disease Control following an outbreak of a potentially deadly drug-resistant germ in area hospitals. More than 300 cases have been reported in New York. Candida auris, a yeast fungus, was only discovered in 2009 but has quickly spread globally. When it comes to the United States and here in our area, the CDC says New York has 309 confirmed cases, New Jersey has 104 confirmed cases and Connecticut has one. The CDC says Candida auris is a problem because: * It can cause bloodstream infections, wound infections, ear infections. * It can kill you. * It is often resistant to...

Could Social Media Impact Your Personal Injury Claim?

The use of social media is becoming more and more common. In fact, as of January 2014, 74 percent of adults who used the internet also used social media sites, a Pew Research Center report found. (Since that time, it is estimated that that number has grown.) As social media provides a forum for individuals to share their thoughts, feelings, experiences, and photos, it makes sense that some people who have been injured in an accident turn to social media to share details. However, social media effects on a personal injury claim can be negative, and using social media while in the...
