New York City Personal Injury Attorneys
New York City is an exciting place to live, work, and play. The streets and sidewalks are full of people who may or may not call our City home. But while folks from out of town take in the sights and stand on sidewalks gazing up in wonder at our skyscrapers, New Yorkers rush about the business of getting safely to their jobs and back home to provide for their families.

With the sheer numbers of people moving through the streets of our City, on foot or in motor vehicles, it’s inevitable that an accident will happen. Something as simple as tripping over a mop bucket left outside a restaurant, being clipped by a taxi that went through the pedestrian crosswalk too quickly, or getting rear-ended by a driver who’s not paying attention to the stop-and-go traffic — any imaginable type of accident could change your life in the blink of an eye. The accident may not have been your fault, but it could put you deeply in debt, unable to pay your bills or provide for your family. If this applies to your situation, call a New York City personal injury attorney at Kaplan Lawyers PC and take the next step toward financial recovery.

In New York, a hit-and-run accident is viewed as leaving an accident scene in which you were involved without reporting it.
Getting a hit-and-run ticket in New York can (depending on the circumstances) result in your being fined up to $250 and can land you in jail for 15 days! Three points are added to your driving record, a fact that will be of concern to your liability insurer. This means your rates will rise noticeably. And if you hold a commercial driver’s license, fleeing the scene of an accident and getting caught means you lose that license for a year.
Without skilled construction workers, we wouldn’t have sturdy roofs over our heads or the highways, bridges and other infrastructure that are necessary to our everyday lives. Construction is important work that unfortunately is filled with safety risks.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, one in five on-the-job deaths are in the construction industry; 991 construction workers died nationwide and many more were injured in 2016, the most recent year for which data is available. And the news is no better closer to home. A recent study by the New York Committee for Occupational Safety & Health reported that construction-related fatalities are on the rise in the Empire State. In New York City, the construction sector had the highest rate of occupational deaths of all workplace fatalities across industries.
A new study by researchers at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) discovered that once teenagers swap their learner’s permits for driver’s licenses, and are able to drive without an adult, they often throw caution to the wind and drive more recklessly. This isn’t good news when statistics show that car accidents are the No. 1 single cause of death for teenagers. Crashes account for one in three teenage deaths, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
