Pedestrian accident numbers in the city may be eased by new law

A new law will apply in New York City as of November 7. It reduces the speed limit on city streets from 30 to 25 mph. Mayor De Blasio pointed out that a pedestrian hit by a vehicle at 25 mph is only half as likely to die then if hit at a speed of 30 mph. That vital pedestrian accident statistic is important enough to justify the change, according to the mayor.

I was injured in a car accident -- where do I go for help?

It is not uncommon for drivers in New York to think that car accidents only happen to other people. When they find themselves involved in a collision, they are often unsure of what is expected of them and what to do next. Drivers often think that they have to sit back and wait for their insurance company to pay the medical expenses, not realizing that the insurers will likely do whatever they can to minimize the payout. Accident victims usually benefit from consulting with a motor vehicle accident attorney to guide them through the legalities after a car accident.
