Taxi groups complain that distracted driver rules favor Uber

The rise of Uber in New York City has taxi drivers complaining of uneven rules and a tougher fight to make a living. A pro-taxi group recently asked the City Council to limit Uber drivers to a maximum work shift of 12 hours, which is what taxi drivers are limited to in the city. Although the rule is in place for safety reasons to prevent negligence and distracted driver accidents, the taxi group appears to be stressing mainly that they are having a tough time competing due to more liberal rules for Uber drivers.

$10 million agreed for fatal accident on brink of jury verdict

The after-effects of a severe head injury may take days or weeks to manifest themselves fully enough for the victim and his or her family to see that something serious has occurred. That is essentially what took place in a fatal accident in New York on Dec. 28, 2011 when a man was rear-ended by a truck owned by a bottling company. The victim did not apparently notice serious symptoms immediately after the collision, which is fairly common in car accident injuries where the immediate shock and excess adrenaline cause a person to feel numb to the pain and other symptoms that may be temporarily masked.

Collapsed crane causes fatal accident in lower Manhattan

A unique kind of pedestrian fatality in New York City reappeared on Friday, Feb. 5, at about 8:30 a.m. A massive crane crashed to the ground, crushing and killing a man who was waiting at a light to cross the street and injuring at least two others. Workers were trying to lower the crane amidst high winds when it got loose and slammed into the street, crushing a row of parked cars and creating a war zone scene, according to authorities and witnesses. The fatal accident occurred near Worth and Broadway in the Tribeca section of lower Manhattan.

Car accident numbers boom during big snow storm

On Sunday, Jan.24, New York City was reeling under the impact of a blizzard that laid down about 26.8 inches of snow or more. It was at least the second worst accumulation of snow in New York City history. The police had to contend with some 312 accidents in the city prior to a ban on travel that was ordered by Gov. Cuomo to begin at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday afternoon. Persons who were involved in a car accident, however, were not necessarily shielded from liability for negligence.
