Man places traffic cones to halt pedestrian accident occurrences

The Vision Zero plan in New York has had some modest success, which includes last year being reported as the safest year on the city's streets in over a century. Nevertheless, the reports of fatalities continue to occur, along with even more regular reports of accidents and non-fatal injuries. One safe streets advocate recently offered some of his own ideas about controlling pedestrian accident statistics in an interview with a member of the press.

Another fatal accident strikes down an elderly pedestrian

New York City continues to lose good people to the carelessness that appears to be in the DNA of many city motorists. The latest fatal accident took the life of a 73-year-old sculptor, teacher and military veteran who was beloved in his upper West Side community. A motorcyclist who may have been speeding struck the victim as he was attempting to cross the street at Amsterdam Avenue and West 96th Street just after 5 p.m. on Jan.14.

Fatal accident without criminality may allow monetary claim

There is some controversy over whether a taxi driver should have received criminal charges for the December accident in New York City where his cab killed a 22-year-old woman at W. 51st Street and Eighth Avenue. Some criticism has been leveled toward Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance for not bringing charges. However, the family of the victim who died in that fatal accident are nonetheless entitled to bring a civil claim for wrongful death monetary damages against the driver and the taxi cab company.

Wrong-way car accident has the silver lining of no fatalities

Another wrong-way accident has occurred in New York. This time, however, the perpetrator and the victim will live to tell about it. A 32-year-old man had been driving the wrong way on State Route 590 just before crashing into an oncoming vehicle. After the car accident, both men were trapped in their vehicles and had to be extracted.

Pedestrian injury victim may claim damages from reckless driver

Some antics of drivers in New York City may strike some observers as comedic displays by eccentric personalities. But the antics of a reckless driver in Manhattan are nothing to be proud about. Indeed, the 27-year-old driver who went on a driving rampage through the city recently is now facing assault and attempted robbery charges. He may expect to be confronted by personal injury claims from those who suffered pedestrian injury from his seemingly wanton and destructive actions.
